....enjoying the sun on my skin in lovely Brisbane. A quick unplanned 5 nights in Queensland to spend some time with husband who was working up there.
If you were wondering (picture above number 3 on top of his RH foot), yes he does number his socks! He has about 5 pairs of identical running socks of varying age that I struggle to pair together - he thoughtfully numbered them to make it easier :)
So anyway, I haven't been to Brisbane for several years and must say I was amazed by the amount of construction going on (including the 6am jackhammer outside our hotel window). The city felt alive and kicking - something that winter lacks down south here where most of us tend to hide indoors.
We loved the Queensland & Scienceworks Museums (so much so we spent 2 days there)
and couldn't resist visiting the late Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo, or Bindi's Zoo as it is referred to in our family.
Then a couple of days at Southbank where the mid-20 degree weather was perfect for swims and walks and that finished our time in sunny Brisbane.
