We had a lovely time in Fraser, but are truly ecstatic to be home. Once you get spoiled by cooking healthy, nourishing food, vacations just don’t have the same appeal. It’s hard for me to take a vacation from eating healthily and locally when I now have such a personal connection to the food I eat, not to mention to the control-freak side of me that likes to know what, exactly, is in each morsel I consume. But, besides the food, it was wonderful to see such a rugged, rural side of Australia. I’ve never seen anything like it – all the roads throughout the island were soft sand, the water was universally pristine, and the terrain was wild – I said to Ant, more than once, “we must be in Jurassic Park!” Speaking of, we also listened to an amazing book (still only a third of the way through) on the drive – “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson. Read or listen to it – you won’t be disappointed! It is a fascinating tale of nearly all the science (and many of the scientists) who have made up and defined the world we live in.
Anyway, without further ado, here are photos from our journey. Hope you enjoy!
The ferry that took us over, complete with cars two wide, all 4WD, of course!
Must be Dingo safe!
The hotel, while lackluster in nearly every other way, had a truly wonderful restaurant, Seabelle, that specialized in local cuisine. We enjoyed kangaroo loin, emu rillete, and Ant devoured the tempura crocodile tail. Wowza!
