We have just returned from a quick weekend trip up to Queensland for Clint’s mum’s 60th birthday party 🎉
We flew out on Friday and after a stopover in Melbourne we were up in Brisbane by 10pm.
On Saturday it was warm very early so we walked across the road to the beach (yes ultra convenient) in Paradise Point and went for a swim and a paddle on the stand up paddle board. The water was a nice level of cool so we spent a few hours out there before venturing back to the house.
There were plenty of fast boats, jet skis and sailing boats out on the water enjoy the lovely weather and even a few that look like they have been moored there for a while.
We walked down the road to the shops and enjoyed lunch at the Point Restaurant. They have really good deals on food there as we managed to get a drink, garlic bread and a main meal for $20each and my barramundi and salad was delicious and perfect for a hot day.
On the way back we stopped in for an icecream at Baskin Robbins before venturing back to the house for some downtime before getting ready for the party.
The party was held at the Stingray bar in the QT Hotel on the Gold Coast and it was a great venue with plenty of room to celebrate Vicky’s birthday with friends and family. The drinks were flowing and plenty of food on offer including little pies with injectible gravy, quesadillas, jalapeño poppers and more. The dessert platter that came out was filled to the brim with macaroons, cakes, little tarts and more and it was a great night.
We flew back from Brisbane mid afternoon arriving back in Hobart late evening. It’s been a big weekend and luckily for us it’s a public holiday for those living in South Tasmania today so we have a day to recover before heading back to work.
Here’s one final shot from up in the sky as being above the clouds always makes me smile.
