Our Birthday Bear Group went to Wynum on Moreton Bay for lunch to celebrate Paul's birthday. To understand the Birthday Bear's tradition click here.
Bear was dressed by Mary and the table and chair were made by George. Bear is reflecting some of Paul's recent activities. He enjoys reading and is a whiz at jigsaw puzzles. He also enjoys a good red wine.
I don't think we were quite ready for this shot by the looks of us, but at least it included Ann in the mirror taking the photo. (L to R) George, Helen, Paul, Mary, moi, and Bill.
Unfortunately, Helen and Paul have not had a good year. They often travel with us and they had booked to come to Canada and Alaska with us. However, Paul was diagnosed with Mesothelioma cancer and had to have surgery and chemotherapy. So they had to cancel their trip, we were all very sad. He has been a sick fellow and it is good to see he is able to join us today to celebrate his birthday. Since this day he has been given heartening news from the Oncologist. The treatment has worked and there are no more tumours growing.
The weather was not nice enough for us to take our intended walk along the water's edge so we chatted and watched the bay activity.
Its not a very pretty sight at low tide. The fisherman didn't seem to be catching anything either.
