Spoilt Rotten!

A weekend retreat of a different kind found Mr Floss and Me in Central Australia.
We flew to Ayres Rock Resort and within 1/2 hour we were walking around Kata Tjuta (the Olgas)…. drinking champagne at sunset while watching the colours of the desert change on Uluru….then dining at a BBQ beside the famous rock!



Day 2 - a walk around the base of Uluru.... just 10 kilometres!! ...then another 2klms to catch our bus to another sunset viewing.














Day 3 - was my birthday, so.. before sunrise we were on a coach to Kings Canyon. (just a 3 hour drive)
What an Awesome day…walking the rim (only 6 klms this time) after a 500 step climb to the top!!
Another sunset on Uluru…Then dinner at Sails Resort topped off a fantastic day!

















Day 4 - A quick walk out to the camel farm and a ride on a camel!… I want one!..I didn't realise how lovely and clever camels are! A baby called Milkshake wanted to suck our fingers. She was so cute!















One of the best things about having a birthday is having secret sewing sisters… and receiving lovely parcels of fabric!!  Thank you so much to those girls for spoiling me with delicious fabrics. (and other yummy treats)














I was sorry to miss the Chook Shed's birthday celebrations but I did manage some stitching on the plane and coach… It's amazing what we will do to get our stitching fix.
The only  souvenir  I bought was some aboriginal print fabric!!… I was pretty impressed to find fabric in the desert!!

 
I just don't know how I will top this birthday next year!!

Till next time
Cheers Floss

  7. Yep! It certainly will be hard to beat this birthday. What a fantastic few days you had, and plenty of exercise so that you could enjoy all that lovely food. I thought after feeding all your calves you wouldn't want to feed any more animals, but the young camel is super cute. Have fun with all of your new fabrics.
