Marty's Townsville Tour

Before we left, I posed with some of my favourite things in Townsville.
This is me and a statue of Robert Towns. Townsville was named after him. Suddenly the name of the town didn't sound so silly!

This is the Holiday Inn, and is referred to as the Sugar Shaker by lots of locals. From another angle, the pale yellow tube on the top looks like the pourer on a sugar canister. I am strutting my stuff on the Victoria Bridge.
This is the first of the Big Things I visited on my tour. He is the dinosaur guardian at the Museum of Tropical Queensland. You might have to biggify to find me!

This is me flying past the Big Spider. Yes, mancats and ladycats, I was thrown up in the air for this photo. Where is the respect?!
This is the supply lot Fui and Suey were found on when they were only tiny little ratty-kittens. They've come a long way!:)

Stick with me, I have more Big Things to show you!

You were stuck in the dino's nostril and then thrown in the air?! You better tell those people of yours not to treat you that way, because Fui wouldn't like it!

j/k: We love your pictures!
