Mosaic Monday ... On A Mission.

My better half and I were on a mission over the past weekend.  We whisked ourselves away to our favourite get-away spot to celebrate another milestone in our marriage ... our 33rd anniversary.  It's amazing how quickly the years pass and I think we often overlook just what an achievement it is to still be together and happy after all this time.


Mission Beach is only a three-hour drive away and we always love to stay at one particular resort right on the beach front.  The Castaways Resort has been a favoured destination of ours for well over ten years now, and it never fails to disappoint.  Luckily it came through Tropical Cyclone Yasi very well despite the fact that it was located within the very destructive centre of the cyclone when it made landfall.


The views from our room over the coconut fringed sandy beach right in front of the resort are just spectacular whether it be early morning, midday or evening.  The sound of the ocean waves splashing onto the beach and the breezes blowing through the palm fronds is just instantly calming and relaxing.  If only the weekend could have gone on and on!  Unfortunately I'm about to head off now to visit my beautiful grandchildren, my son and daughter-in-law!  Ah, the sacrifices we have to make!

  18. congratulations on your anniversary. I am glad that you treated yourselves to a weekend away at the beach - our beaches don't have palm trees over here! And I am very pleased to see the photos of Mission Beach - after hearing about all the cyclone damage earlier this year.
    Have a wonderful week.

  19. Happy (belated) anniversary, a wonderful milestone very worthy of celebration, and what a beautiful getaway! I think I've almost forgotten what one of those is. I really should remedy that. These pictures are very motivating!

  20. Happy Anniversary Bernie. I've been looking at your thumbnails in the other blog and thinking why you've not been posting. Now it's understandable, you're on vacation. Those photos looks like I am looking at our own beaches. I love the way you made your collage too. What do you use in doing them, i just use picasa.
