Home from Queensland

I am very tired and still trying to get things sorted. I did manage to get a few photos up and organised. As usual I had forgotten that they go up in reverse order. So the first ones are on a friends property in the Brisbane Valley, looking fantastic and very lovely. Then the lop eared beasts they call cattle up there in Queensland, these were most entertained at this group of people having lunch.
Then the Brisbane River where we crossed in the 4 wheel drives, very small at this stage.
Finally the Surfers Paradise big buildings seen as we walked the beach, no swimming as the cyclonic affects were still being felt and the seas were huge,this was the second day of the trip and finally John walking ahead on our first day when it was still very wild on the beach and I nearly got washed away when a slightly larger wave got me. After that I was very careful with the camera so you really cant see what the waves looked like.
Wonderful 2 weeks, lots more installments to come but we didnt stop this time and now I am home I am looking after one grand child and feeding Tabby's ponies and I think my back is broken!!

Glad you had such a wonderful time Penny - there are other breeds of cattle up here too, you know, though mostly inland - the brahmins are very tick resistant, so are much more popular in the coastal tropics. Cheers,Robin
