I haven't managed to get through all the pictures yet, but I think I've seen enough to say: WOW! Looking at the Fiji photos made me want to cry - I want to go there! NOW! Astonishingly lovely. I hope you enjoyed yourselves - you have to have enough fun to enable me to live vicariously through you. I look forward to reading about your daily adventures!

You are going to be so heartrendingly disappointed with Hawaii, on the way back. So Tom Sawyer disappointed.

Eeeeee! Photos! *hyperventilates with joy*

I'm terribly amused by your captions, and like Aven, very jealous. Fortunately for me, I'm unemployed and there's a convenient ship headed that way... ;)

Thanks for the photos of the emergency vehicles - a great start. To be sure, you will receive royalties for your inputs once my book sells like crazy...

Glad to see you're having fun!

I'm in shock and awe over the Fiji photos. Sunsets, lizards, palm trees oh my! I want to hug the screen....

Thanks for sharing the beauty, but you've stirred the big green beast of envy. :)

Sweet photos. Fiji looks awesome. Makes me want to run somewhere warm sooner rather than later!

Greetings from my `bure' also called `condominium' by the colorful locals in South Florida.

We also have coconuts and palm trees down here. Some of them are real. Some are weather restistant plastic, which is very sensible, I think. But they're all pretty.

The pics are wonderful. But, be honest. Can soft warm air and gentle breezes and rainbow sunsets really challenge the crisp, bracing beauty of Ottawa on a - 30C January's eve? Or Winnipeg where it was recently -55C. Or edmonton, or ...

I look forward to the next gallery ..

yers as ever, Uncle Peter

ps it's a good thing that damn coconut didn't fall on A's head!

Wish I could go to either place for a while instead of studying. The photos are amazing! I want more, though. How am I supposed to procrastinate at work? Love and miss you both.

The pictures look great! I love the "lounging with kangaroos" one!

Btw, in the last picture in the Otway National Park set, Mark and I both recognised the "strange plant" you noticed as just a baby fern, about to uncurl and become an adult fern. If you've ever eaten fiddleheads (young ferns of a certain edible species, available in early spring in Ontario and the Maritimes) you'd recognise the shape.

Doh. Aven beat me to it. Fern's they be...

Once again a pile of incredible pictures, can't wait for the next installment!

Apostles! Now I remember what they were called! Great to see pictures of them again ( another friend's Australian trip had led to my first viewing of these fascinating formations ) because I remember mentioning them to you. Love the continuing sets of great photos and funny captions, can we get a fun online poll to vote on our favourite pictures? One of my faves from the Kangaroo island set is of 2 sea lions sleeping, despite the noise made by the other type of seals "jockeying for whatever". Ahhh, the life of a sea lion...

You appear to be having a wonderful time, please continue to post the evidence! :)
