Ultima, Tweed

We had to stay in another hotel in Tweed, this one called Ultima.  We didn’t get a room this time, but a suite.  From the veranda there were some pretty rad views!

I was digging the contrast between industrial and beachy surroundings.

Look at these people exercising.  Lunatics.

Anyway, so the room itself was pretty spesh too…

And it came with a fully-equipped kitchen that was so nifty, Pat had to cook me dinner.  I photographed him in action because uh, it doesn’t happy very often and I always want to remember it. 😛

It might have been the greatest ravioli I’ve ever eaten!

After dinner we went down to the beach, even though it was getting a wee bit stormy.  I love this shot – they sky is so angry it looks like Pat is marching (barefoot) into battle, haha.

I just wanted to point out that Coolangatta boasts one massive beach.  Soooooo much sand.

Day 24

img_0894Today was a day of epic storms.

Apparently the people across the lake thought it made for prime swimming conditions though.  Yeah, something about lightning and a large body of water must have sounded magical.

We got so much rain it filled a pot with water in the space of like, an hour.

The rain made the water all nice and warm, so this swan came floating past by house all chilled out…

Well it was chilled out until Indy came barelling down the hill to bark at it.

What can I say?  Another day in paradise.

Day 18

So this is the park across the lake from me (it’s a very small park):

This is the outdoor vent of the air conditioner that stops me from killing myself during February:

This is a very lonely chew toy:

Indy treasures his chew toys, Jazz destroys them.  And when she’s done with hers, she moves on to his.  She’ll usually chew off the face or a leg when Indy has annoyed her, but she refrains from destroying it completely.  Apparently she’s not that heartless.

This is a bleeding heart:

They don’t really look pretty until you see them up close.  I used to obsessed with their curling tendrils.
