The plan was to drive to Toowoomba to see the flowers with Elaine so we packed a picnic and were all ready to go when we looked out the window and saw the dust approaching from the west.

We went out the front to take a look and it was just as bad.
So we abandoned the plan to go to Toowoomba for the day.

Just as well. This is what quickly developed.

These local residents didn't seem to mind.

.... but the rest of us spent the day inside.

After a trip to the hairdresser at Wynnum we headed down to the Gold Coast for a picnic and a walk along the beach.

The weather was beautiful - as usual - and we walked from Broadbeach to Surfers' Paradise.

There were a surprising number of people in the water and on the beach.

The water was way too cold for me!

And, of course, we found some wildlife enjoying the sunshine too!

Today we thought that we would take advantage of the lovely weather on this the first day of Spring so we headed off to Dayboro, Mt Mee, Woodford and finally Maleny. It was lovely cruising through these nice little counrty towns.

We were having lunch in a nice little cafe in Maleny when this fellow appeared then calmly walked around under the tables where people sat !!

Not so little after all - he was a WHOPPER !!!!
