It was Labour Day holiday here in Victoria last weekend.  Dh and I made the most of the long weekend and flew up to see our son and his family in Queensland.  They “shouted” dh and I to a tour of Q1, the tallest building in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.  What great views from the 77th floor.

and finally we spotted some “little nippers” competing on the beach. (little nippers are children who would like to be life savers when they grow up and enjoy the sports that are involved.

My son tells me that they have had 2 months of rain and while we were there it was not much better.  It was so nice to see green grass because at home it has been sooo HOT and dry.  If we could share some of their rain we would all be happy.

Well we’re home again now and today was below 30ºC which is the first time in 2 weeks so it was lovely.

Talk to you again soon,
