When Margaret starts putting up the Christmas Decorations I know that I have to begin planning the Christmas Letter. Margaret's latest craft work is a certain reminder of the fast approaching season:There is plenty to report on the activities of members of our family.

|One of our overnight stops was at Paronella Park.
A photographer's paradise!
|We stayed a week in Port Douglas exploring the local area.
This included a visit to an off shore island, where we saw the coral in a flat bottomed boat. Stephen also snorkelled on the reef.
We naturally visited the Daintree Forest, which included a cruise on the Daintree River, (photo below left) where we saw three crocodiles, though our best views of crocs were at Hartley's Crocodile Adventure (photo below right) near Cairns.
|On the way back to Victoria we visited Lightening ridge which included exploring a former opal mine as you can see in the picture.|
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas,
and all the best for 2018,
from Margaret and Stephen
