"Earth's crammed with heaven." -- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

336--Australia: Christmas in the Whitsundays
@ CherieSpotting     Jan 04 2006 - 14:30 PST
cherie writes: Santa arrived to Australia ridding a jet ski. It was too warm for the reindeer to come, so a cuddy croc helped Santa hand out the gifts! Celebrating the holidays at Club Croc in Long Island, we started our day by the beach and ended in the pool.

Even though the climate was tropical, our Christmas tree still had snow on it (the real painted-on kind!) The only thing that was cool about this holiday were the frosty drinks by the pool. And who could forget the smooth tunes floating from the saxaphone.

About 20 friends exchanged silly presents, darned paper crowns, feasted, danced and celebrated life! (I got a vibrating kangaroo for Christmas, which turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving.)
