For the last few years our friends, Ruth and Bill, have invited Bill and other friends, who are Pisces, to a luncheon to celebrate their birthdays.
Ruth and Bill have a lovely apartment in a small block of units overlooking the Brisbane River at Indooroopilli. The other friends were Karl-Heinz, Renata and Maureen.
On the other side of the river, the million dollar houses had water up to the first floor.We could also see where the bank had been washed away. Not only the bank washed away but hundreds of pontoons were also washed down the river. The picture below was taken at the Pisces luncheon 2009.
Pontoon moorings before the flood.
Not only pontoons were washed downstream but hundreds of boats too. See below same place in 2009.
We had a delicious lunch of cold cuts and antipasto followed by figs and cheese and Bill's favourite Tiramasu. He says nobody can make it as well as Ruth.
