Thank you sun lion and tarlita for making me feel like I’m there. How lovely to possibly see migrating whales! Glad Meghan will get a day off. If mental health is one of their topics of concern, showing that taking time off from work is Good for a balanced life

To me, it hardly matters if Meghan baked the bread herself or not (to be clear, I believe she did). The point is, she brought something to share, which is a thoughtful thing to do, and was clearly appreciated as such.

Prince Harry sitting on the pristine white sand in some shade and an aboriginal elder explaining the indigenous story about lake McKenzie and area.
Her name is aunty neigh neigh. Not sure of that spelling.
Harry walked into the lake just over the ankles and is taking handfuls of water. This water is not spring fed but entirely rain water. Crystal clear. I think he enjoyed the coolness on his feet.

UK reporters. How thick in the head are the negative ones when they can clearly see Meghan being warmly embraced by the Australian public.
Says more about the type of person the reporter is.

Harry has walked slowly along the waters edge and washed his face with the lake water. Only a handfull of people there, with the majorityof campers and folks on the other side of the lake.
I think he has walked off back to the 4wd now.
Sunny and warm.

Harry scooped a handful of water to taste.
Fraser sky bright brilliant blue and some thunderstorm clouds developing on the horizon. Can't tell if its coming from the east or west.

Ah, yes.
'Meghan'.
totes
clearly
as usual with both hands


It always makes me feel a bit sad for the people who are so insistently triggered by a man holding his wife's hand or a supporting hand on the back. I reckon they must be very starved for physical affection themselves to be so upset about such a natural thing.


The Australians sure are obsessed with these two and their coverage and general handling of this tour really brings a smile to my face and they are truly putting the tone of the British tabloid coverage to shame.

Check out Harry standing among the shady trees behind the old jetty, with indigenous elders explaining the significance of the totem poles there. And I swear Harry is sporting a little tummy I haven't noticed before. He is wearing a dark long sleeve shirt and a pair of chinos.

Harry now giving a speech about the Queens Canopy Forest. It has the
protection of the Queen. No more logging or mining.
These satin wood trees last a thousand years. They are sea borer resistant which is why they were logged for the London docks area in the 1950s. (?)

May I suggest Harry will turn up to see Meghan with a sunburnt face. Our sun is fierce. He has spent too long without a hat. IMO.
H arry now boarding Rib to travel to the catamaran boat then travel to the resort.

Weather radar shows some storms a few hours to the east of the island. Nothing to worry about I wouldn't think.

Our press now saying this part of the tour is private away from the press.

Tarlita,

Has there been any more commentary about Megsie possibly turning up at the meet & greet along Kingfisher Bay jetty.

Our press not being given definate plans yet. Meet and greet another 40 minutes. Having lunch on board the boat at the moment. Saying both of them at present so I presume Meghan is on board. Very difficult to get accurate info all morning.

Sorry Chloep for not responding earlier to your post. Tis a sad sad thing to read what low lifes people in charge of reporting have become. So much more I would like to say about it, but I believe we should never lower our standards down to there level.

More useless info for you.
The reason Lake McKenzie is so pure for drinking water is that the Ph balance is only 4.2.
Fish need a Ph balance of 8.4 to survive.
So No fish number 2s in this lake. No do do's what so ever.

The press bus was a wild ride for them at breakneck speed -- looked like over those sandy track - roads. They were bounced all over the place.
Ha ha.

Gosh the reporting has been all over the place.

Harry off the boat. Meghan brought out on the jetty by car. Meghan now wearing a white and grey vertical stripe dress. They are walking the jetty.

Yes Axeyman - live coverage on 9 - walking together on the jetty.

Hair up, different dress, both wearing their sunnies.

Media are going to have a field day with the transparency of Meghan's outfit against the sparkling water.


And great descriptions of Fraser Tarlita - appreciated.

A nice meet and greet with the two paramedics who famously granted a dying ladies last wish (a good while ago.) They pulled up and wheeled the ambulance bed over to a spot where the lady was able to soak up looking at the ocean one last time for a few minutes. It was a poignant story and photo from behind and the sheer humanity of the photo was very touching.
The paramedics presented the couple with 2 red cross teddies.

Jetty photos - (Qld Premier with them.)

Some people waited most of the day to see the couple in this location. (Maybe they also swam and fished though. )

The Walkabout was set up awful. The people there to meet them were down on the beach or lining the road but looks like the couple mostly just greeted the people in the greeting line with a few members of the public mixed in. I am glad they went to the otherside of the fence and greeted the people through the fence but the entire set up was just terrible and looked bad.

Not sure what happened here today in regards to the walkabout but I hope they learn from their mistake and don't repeat it again this tour.

I am wondering if they tried to limit it for Meghan's sake but if you announce a public walkabout you actually have to actually meet the public.

I think Meghan will get some heat for this - (but maybe it's a swimsuit cover-up, more than a "dress".)

Information has been very patchy on this leg of the tour. From here they fly to Suva Fiji. I imagined they would fly commercial from Brisbane airport. But perhaps the Royal Australian Airforce will take them direct from Hervey Bay.
No idea at this stage what the arrangements are.

No, it’s a dress with a split.

On the Royal website it says they are flying to Suva on a charter flight.

And I bet she is super comfortable in it in the Qld heat Dman - but if some media are using the making of the banana bread to disparage Meghan, I can just imagine some of tomorrow's UK headlines.


I love Meghan's smile in this photo -

And more fun on the jetty -

I'm so annoyed that I had to work today and miss all the fun. Very glad that Meghan felt well enough to do a meet and greet at the jetty though. And what a wonderful, very spiritual experience for Harry earlier. A further piece of bitter snark from Amanda P I see. Another anti-Meghan article to add to all the others from her.

And so, on to Tonga and Fiji!
