Ahh, Weekend Away

God blesses our family incredibly. We were planning a weekend without the kids (W@dsy's wonderful parents took them for us), and a friend shouted us two nights at the Sebel! It was fantastic to get away, not be "Mum" and to just be me.

W@sdy and I relaxed, wandered about town, swam in the pool, and had a chance to see what a lovely and slightly quirky town we live in.

The Lovely Town...

 The Esplanade at sunset
 The skyline from our hotel room

And the Slightly Quirky Town...

 Yes, that sign does say "Sushi & Waffle." It may be just me, but I find that an odd food combination.
Just a standard hotel toilet you say? Well, not if you need to make a phone call...

We also came across the Literature section of a bookstore, which was entirely empty, no stack of books nearby to indicate a shelf tidy or rearrangement, just an empty bookshelf. Oh and Oddity No.4 for the weekend was a lady walking down the street wearing a burqa (traditional Islamic clothing) which covered most of her body, her enormous sunnies covered her face, but what was odd about the outfit was her neon yellow flipflops.

So there you have it my friends, Cairns is both beautiful and strange.
