“Ayres Rock Or FNQ??”

Description from Lynn in Oz: Hubby and are going to be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary next March and I am thinking of surprising him with a long weekend away- just the two of us.

Now a lot of this is dependant on whether I can con a family member to look after the kids...

Other than that the decision is where to go? Ayres Rock or Far North Queensland?

    Congrats!!! What a wonderful anniversary surprise, Lynn! You’ve done a marvelous job of illustrating both areas! :D You may have to flip a coin….. :D

    BTW, our wedding anniversary is March 15, and we will be married 35 years in 2010! What date is yours?

    Sorry…I have to do it! Choices choices. I guess you have to go with what you like to do and what you like. Lush green and ocean or a big rock! Beautiful pick. It does depict both worlds.

    Crikey, Lynn, you really did nail those color choices!!! LOL How did you like my Australian accent? ;-)

    Tara, thanks for sharing those gorgeous pix with us! I’m thinking — road trip to visit Lynn in Oz!!! Well, there might be some air travel involved, too….. 8)

    Oh yeah! That plane trip is not fun! 14 hours is way too long to be on a plane…especially when your not in Business or First Class. And that is from LA…not including your flight to LA if you have to go there! But, Australia is beautiful!

    Yikes! I forgot about the looooooong plane trip! Hmmmmmmmm Cruise ship? Still long, but definitely more comfortable. :D That way we wouldn’t have to worry about weight limits for bringing back souvenirs, such as BEADS!!! LOL

    Pretty pick!!! :-) BTW: the Australian beading community even has their own magazine..usually on the racks at Barnes & Nobles… a bit pricey, but nice projects.

    Lynn, I thought you were from Kansas…don’t know why… but that would be a very long weekend trip to get to Ayres Rock, wouldn’t it? LOL Silly me. I guess the OZ part of your name lead to my favorite exercise—jumping to conclusions. ;)

  12. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    A cruise ship would take days to get there! But, you are right…way more comfortable. Of course, a cruise ship may cost as much as first or business class! Either way, I would plan on staying there at least two weeks…a month would be better. There is so much to see and do!

    Hey, Harriet! I was jumping right along with you when I first met Lynn in Oz! Guess I watched “The Wizard of Oz” a few too many times to think it could mean anything besides Kansas! ROTFLOL

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I know, Chicky LE. You get a certain mindset going, see the movie again on the Classic Movies channel, and there you go…off with the whirlwind! LOL :-)

    Maybe I should change my name to Lynn in Aus??? LOL

    Thanks ladies, the more I look at the brochures the more I am leaning towards an island off the coast of FNQ such as: http://www.hayman.com.au/
