Had a fab morning on the beach, despite having nearly drowned beneath a massive wave & narrowly losing both my top and bottom half of my swim suit but the champagne & croissants afterwards made it all ok :)

The rest of the afternoon was spent playing in the pool, drinking champagne (at the same time!) & removing large spiders from the dining area!

Aussie life at its best :)

Jamie got her down (tentatively) with a tennis racket & a bucket & we released her into a tree outside the back garden (but not before I took some close ups!)

 Quite beautiful really :)
