JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Mothers Day at QT Resort Port Douglas

QT Port Douglas  had their first birthday on Saturday so they celebrated with a birthday party - of course! The party started at lunch with a BBQ and lots of kids entertainment followed by the "young at heart" celebrations from 6pm.  QT have a great locals deal in the off-season.  $159 gives you a deluxe suite, welcome drinks and breakfast for two.  We decided to take advantage of the deal and help them celebrate their birthday and to help us celebrate Mothers Day.
We first stayed at QT resort in 1990 when it was a brand new Raddison Resort.  It was lovely back then and if it is at all possible, even better in 2013.  The place has had a complete makeover and it is remarkable.  It has a latin feel but in a retro style.  The rooms are beautiful and large with a separate bedroom and a very spacious ensuite. 
 
Loved this desk chair!
The "mini bar".  Have you ever seen such a variety! I could not resist buying the "Pick-up-Sticks"



It's the little things that make the difference like these wooden bananas on a wooden tray

The retro continued in the ensuite

I loved these little bottles and footstool
We had breakfast in Bazaar restaurant.  The restaurant is surrounded by a water-lily filled "moat" and it is a tranquil setting.  What a wonderful way to start the day!
Our stay was all too short but QT resort is a place that we will most definitely return to.

Even the tea and coffee area in Bazaar had a retro feel!
