Holiday Snaps.......



Just sharing a few snaps from my recent holiday
in Palm Cove which is situated in far north Queensland
I hope you like them!




Beautiful golden sandy beaches




And for special occasions
you could dine under the palms




This gorgeous white chapel situated right on the beach
was the ideal location for small weddings
I couldn't help but take a peek through the windows!


 



Sunrise over the Coral Sea
Very early in the morning was the prettiest
time on the beach


Lots of walking tracks!

Dearest Dianne,

Funny, we just got back from a wedding in The Netherlands and the bride was the maid of honor for an Australian wedding in May, and that was at this very beach!
Love to you,

Mariette

My goodness! I am thinking a trip to Palm Cove and Australia is de rigueur after seeing these. Absolutely stunning. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I am a Canadian who for some unknown reason have my heartstrings firmly tied to Australia. I thoroughly enjoyed these photos of this paradise. During one stay there I travelled from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, but I missed Palm Cove. Thanks for sharing.

The table shot has me swooning...sigh

Steve said...

Amazing pictures, it makes me want to reach for my cheque book and get on a flight.

Valerie said...

A fabulous collection of memories Dianne. I gave up trying to decide which was my favourite shot as each has its own special appeal. In the words of a TV commercial: "Keep on keeping on" !

We stayed at the Beach House at Palm Cove some years back - you've just reminded me of that lovely time we had there. We really are spoiled with our beaches, aren't we? So often we dream of Hawaii, Fiji & Thailand but then we realise we can stay safe in Australia and still enjoy the great climate and the beautiful beaches here.

Cheers - Joolz
