I am a strong believer in that maintaining friendships is good for your health and well being. That is why I enjoy our Birthday Bear Group, where we organise a get together when it is one of our birthdays. Recently, we organised a few days away together on Bribie Island not far from Brisbane. (see last posts) While we were there we looked up other friends that had moved there in the past.
|(L to R) Bill, Mary, moi, Jo, Rob, Paul, Helen, George and Ann took the photo.|
A huge Moreton Bay Fig tree framed the pretty scene and provided........
a resting place for a Corella Parrot. (they can become noisy, hungry pests in some areas).
Also living on the island are Maureen and Keith, old friends of ours from Papua/ New Guinea days. We visited them too and caught up with their news and talked about the old days. Silly me forgot to take a photo of them.
While Mary and Helen prepared dinner for our last night, we watched the silvery moon rising.
The next day, before returning home, we stopped by the markets. This colourful busker caught my attention.
old farts boys were browsing through CD's and records.
Then we found Jo and her fabric stall. Hugs and kisses were in store as we said good bye until next time. How could this lovely smile not brighten up your day.
