Yes! It is time to celebrate another birthday with Birthday Bear. For new readers find out about our Birthday Bear tradition here. This time it was Ann's birthday and she wanted to celebrate her birthday with us and Bear at Mt Tamborine. Mt Tamborine is a beautiful mountain village in the hinterland of the Gold Coast. It is only 50 k and 50 min drive from home.
There were seven of us (eight including Bear) and we stayed in a 5 star B&B. "Villa della Rosa" It was a lovely place with ......
...a beautiful garden.
Birthday Bear came to breakfast dressed as a telephonist as that was Ann's job when she was very young. She often has us in fits of laughter when recalling her time as a telephonist/ call girl. Birthday Bear even had her switchboard with her. She had also dashed out in her lunch break to buy some groceries, which are in her string bag.
Ann loved her Birthday Bear and we loved the scrumptious breakfast that followed.
It was Helen's turn to dress Birthday Bear and she did a great job, especially with the switchboard.
We all had a great two days at Mt Tamborine. I'll show you what we did in the next posts.
