Croccy Woccy Doo Dah

I have been without internet or phone signal for 4 days.  It has been very liberating and I highly recommend it.  I am currently in an internet cafe, wishing I was one of the backpackers I am here with.  Here is a quick recap of some of the things we did on the way from Cairns to Port Douglas.

Our last morning in Cairns began with another swim.H at pool 2 I took the little fella thinking he would be happy pottering in the little pool but no, he came and swam lanes alongside me.  It was a perfect start to the day, swimming in the Aussie sunshine.H at pool 1 Back to our apartment to pack up.house Cairns ha ha – not the one above, this one 🙂our apartment Breakfast of avocado mashed on to toast with tomato.toms and guac And off we went to Port Douglas.  We couldn’t resist a quick stop at Hartley’s crocodile place again as our tickets gave us 3 days access.heron 1 I am fascinated by crocodiles.croc 7 They terrify me but I feel compelled to keep looking at them.Croc 6 This guy was feeding the crocs.  He is in with the little freshies – you wouldn’t go in with a saltwater croc as they are VERY dangerous.  He has worked here since 1989 which is when I met my husband, BJ, Guy in New Zealand and Billy.  Amazing to think of all the things I have done since then but he has just worked here.croc 5 croc 4 croc 3 croc 2 Move little heron or you will be croc dinner.Heron

That was my lunch on day 1 at Port Douglas – a cheese toastie with chips and salad.  Delicious but enough for 2 people.linch in PD We are now staying in a beach house in Port Douglas with BJ, Helen, James and the very gorgeous Henrietta, my beautiful God-Daughter.lovely H We decided to spend our first full day together on the beach.in sea 1 I spent about 2 hours in the sea.  It was gorgeous.  So warm and wavey enough to be exciting but not dangerous. Then. having spent AUD 20 on a sunbed I decided to make the most of it.day on beach in sea After a fun day on the beach we walked back along the beach to our beach house which backs this beautiful 4 mile long beach.  It is stunning here.walking back 2 in sea 3 kids in sea 4 kids on beachThe perfect location for a holiday with supersonic lovely friends.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
