National Treasures...


No card today as it as we headed off to do the 'Tourist' thing at Gold Creek Village and saw Cockington Green, which is a miniature English and International Village - so much to see!! My sister Debbie took the traditional tourist photos, but I thought I would share the treasures that I found....starting with the Kangaroo and Emu - and those 'gorgeous gals' of course (me, Mum (Lesley) and my sister, Debbie. ) Just as a matter of interested - do you know why the Kangaroo and Emu are the National birds for Australia - they can't go backwards....they have to move forwards all of the time!
Melinda (aka Melinda80) was also with us, so we had to do the 'Tourist Thing' and get our photos taken with these two as well! Melinda was so patient...I know she was busting to get to the Craft Shop....thank you Melinda - You are such a patient person and so thoughtful!
I could not believe my eyes the first time I came here, so just had to find these gorgeous 'sights' to show you - am I the only one who notices these things!?!? This 'flasher' was right next to a Church where a Wedding was about to start - how funny!!
There was so much to see - especially at the Craft Shop we went to afterwards -'Wrapped', where we banged into Michelle (happylittlestamper on SCS) We had to buy a few 'essentials' of course , but we won't go there!!?! LOL We did have to have a chuckle at this photo...a professional shopper in training if I ever saw one!! I did actually put this photo in, so you could see the scale of the buildings - they are incredible!
So there you have it - a few highlights from our day...I will be back tomorrow with a post for you...I do appreciate you stopping by - have a great day! God bless you!
