Bluey is quite the photo ham! he loves attention and regularly tries to taste my camera. Chosing a desktop is quite a drawn out procedure for me these days, so many photos!
Thanks for that info - I hope to come check out those blue cheek spines & 3 foot clams personally . I keep showing my husband pictures of Bluey. Finally last night he was looking up Townsville on the internet - he liked it! According to one source Cactus Jack's doesn't sell liquor? I've never heard of a Mexican restaurant that didn't serve margaritas - maybe a liquor license is hard to get in Queensland (?). I'll have to check into it

The airfare is unbelievable from Houston, but he sounds interested in a visit.

What's up with those killer jellies? Some sources made it sound like during jelly season you'd be crazy to set a toe in the water around there
