This photo from the newspaper shows how Brisbane celebrated. Our icon, the Storey Bridge, is set alight.
We had a complicated Christmas but it was fun. Our eldest daughter, Carol and SIL, David flew from Sydney to spend Christmas Eve with us and Christmas Day with David's parents. On Boxing Day we all flew to Melbourne to have another Christmas with youngest daughter, Sonya and fiance Bernie.
I didn't get to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS before I left. I'm trying to learn the bokeh effect.
We had a typical Aussie Christmas seafood dinner. David cooked a whole Snapper.
Carol-Ann made a Tomato and Bocconcini Salad.
Bill made Bean Salad and Potato Salad. I shelled the prawns and made a Green Salad.
And we washed it all down with an award winning Katnook Estate Shiraz. Gone are the days where one must drink white wine with seafood. It was a simple but very happy Christmas.
