We had our selves a bank holiday holiday today in Brisbane. The Brisbane show day, very similar to the Yorkshire show. Its known localy as the E.C.C.A. (don't know what that stands for) Anyway we decided to go up the Sunshine Coast road to Mooloolaba for lunch at the surf club. The club its self sits right on the beach and has superb panoramic sea views.
Me, Adrienne and William went for the roast dinner as it included crackling Hmmmmmm and Lauren went for the freshly caught home made Calamari. Laurens friend Cassie went for the potatoe wedges and dips, the food and views got top marks from us all.
We then went down the beach to Baskin Robbins for Ice Creams and Capuchino's before heading back home.

This Sunday the four of us had a trip to Brizzy along with Laurens friend Cassie. It was another beautiful day with clear skys. At around 23 degs. the weather was not too shabby for the middle of winter. We took a ride in on the City Cat, then had a look through the shops and markets. After all that work we called into the Plough Inn for a well earned cold drink and then had ourselves a picnic on the grass in front of the river before heading back up the Sunshine coast road back to North Lakes.

Today the four of us took a trip to the Kondalilla Falls close to Mapleton, about an hours drive North up the Sunshine coast road. The falls are in one of many National Parks in the area and the views are simply superb. Will stood on one of the observation towers and after looking out over the 125 meter drop, turned and said to me,"its just like Yorkshire". After a stroll round the park we had Bar-b-q lunch before heading back with a stop at Montville village where we tucked into home made scones with jam, fresh cream and a pot of tea. Oh its a hard life, but I guess some one has to do it
