Weekend Away

Seems as though last weekend was the weekend for many bloggers to have a trip away.  The three photos below are the only photos I took all weekend:

Kitchen in the unit we stayed in on Thursday night
View from the loungeroom
Barbara and I on our way to see "Wicked"
Photos that don't show what a fantastic time we had.  We arrived at the Gold Coast on Thursday night, booked into our accommodation (beautiful 2 bedroom unit) and then had dinner at a very friendly Italian restaurant just across the street.  We spent Friday shopping at Pacific Fair and then stayed overnight with Diann.  Saturday morning Diann's extremely cute grandson came to visit us and after morning tea Barbara and I left to drive to Carindale for some more shopping.

We were staying in Brisbane on Saturday night, had dinner at our hotel and met up with Diann and Angela (Diann's daughter), who were coming with us to see "Wicked" - what a fabulous show.  Such wonderful singing and the costumes!  Sunday morning we had a good look around Brisbane cbd and then it was time to drive to the airport for our trip home.

Last week I saw Anna Bligh on Adam Hills' show asking people to have a holiday in Queensland to help boost the economy - Barbara and I have definitely done our bit to help out.

Rain started falling just as our plane landed in Sydney and we drove into rain all the way home - the rain was here to stay for a few days.  It has been torrential on the South Coast.  No damage around our area but loads not too far away.

John and I are driving up to the Hunter Valley on Friday to attend a wedding - maybe I'll take more photos this time.

Great to hear you had a good time with your mates. I also have just retuned home after 5 days with my DD2 and Kids.
