Treasures on Tuesday....

Thank you Melody for hosting another Treasure Tuesday for us...... 

My wonderful weekend just has to be my treasure today....

On Saturday morning Hubz and I jumped into the car and drove a couple of hours into Brisbane....

We first went to the Botanical Gardens for a walk around.... look at the flowers on this hanging succulent....

... searching for fairies under the bonsai..... definitely could see where they had been picnicking...

over at the planetarium I met this cool Russian guy who understood the universe and stars....

spent a couple of hours at the museum... (the queues for the mummy exhibition were so long we didn't have a chance so missed out on that....)

 .... then finally off to find where I would be meeting up with the Brisbane Bloggers....

I had dinner.... just amazing.... Mussels cooked Portuguese style.....  I'll go back for this

I wanted to bring this home with me.....

in the morning we went for a walk at the sea side..... mmmm...

the seagulls set up a pose for us....

... and Hubz checked out a lighthouse he found interesting....

..... then off I went... the whole reason for the trip.... meeting all these other treasures...

From left to right.... Michelle, Helen, Noela, Susan, Cheryl, Lynda, Marilyn, De, Mary and Teresa
This party was so much fun that I am going to do another post to tell you about it...... but if you can't wait lots of them have put up posts so you could go and visit.....  I am still rubbing my cheeks - they got sore from all the chatting and laughing.....

and look what happened on the way home.... of course.....

Righto... Gotto Go... other Treasures to look at and read.....

I think we are expecting to get to 12 degrees today.... mmm.... sunny queensland
