    Had a fantastic day snorkeling The Great Barrier Reef, at Airlie Beach in the Whitsunday Region of Australia. “On top of the world” while down under!

    What To Do After A Hike in Australia

    Carrots: The Vegetable for All Seasons

    Carrots are available year round…no wonder they are so popular! Actually a member of the parsley family!  Who knew? Known for their heathy properties and high Vitamin A content for over 2,000 years. When buying carrots they should be firm and smooth.  Avoid those with cracks and any that have begun to soften.  The best carrots are young and slender (as with so many other things!!  LOL!)
