The young ones came over from David's parents' place to see us before they start their road journey to Sydney where they hope to find a job and a place to live. We decided to have a nice lunch together before they go. We chose the Lighthouse Restaurant perched on the tip of Cleveland Point jutting into Moreton Bay. (Yes, Julie we're eating again)We passed this seafood display on the way to our table. (Colin will be drooling)
We could have a table next to the water or one in a cooler spot under the veranda. We chose the cooler spot as David and Carol are still finding it very hot here after coming from freezing London a few weeks ago. This is an open restaurant so there is no air conditioning. It usually has nice bay breezes but they were a bit light today.
It is like sitting on the deck of a ship, being so close to the water.
Lunch has arrived...
..David and Carol had a seafood platter for two...
Bill had Moreton Bay bugs (sometimes called a Slipper Lobster.Thenus orientalis has an Indo-west Pacific distribution, meaning that it is found in the Indian Ocean and western parts of the Pacific Ocean. The distribution stretches from the east coast of Africa to the Red Sea, southern Asia, China and Japan as well as the Philippines, Indonesia and the northern half of the coast of Australia, including Moreton Bay, from which it derives its common name.) I had baked whole Sole
Everyone is pleasantly full
This is better than skyping to the other side of the world....ahhh to touch, hug, hold and smell the closeness of one's daughter is wonderful.
