June FNSI

Thank you Wendy for having us for a stitching time.... 


Well... I didn't do much sewing... Hubz had a business trip and I went along....

A long drive on Friday to 'blue's' country..... Casino in NSW.... for PRIMEX... an agricultural exhibition...

Once the dust had settled a bit following Wednesday night sports...



(a historical game between NSW and QLD....at which us 'maroons' have won the last 8 years.... but didn't this year!!!!!!)

now.... I don't wish to talk about this any more.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

... a beautiful day for PRIMEX....


I had a bit of a wander and chats whilst Hubz worked .... 

... that evening I did a bit of crochet in front of the TV ... 



and the next day after another short visit there we headed off to the coast....

... stopping off at a lovely cafe on the way ....


an evening walk... the water was lovely and warm for a paddle...


... a most delicious Greek meal.... and a bad night on a hard motel bed....

.... early morning walk.... the shadows make us look tall... but the butt didn't slim down.... 


... the up from the Gold Coast to Mount Tamborine... this view faces the Gold Coast... you can just see the tall buildings in the distance ...


there was an area right by the road where the paragliders take off so we stopped to watch for a while...


... and off to the Botanical Gardens for a stroll... not much in flower at this time of the year of course but lovely Autumn leaves...


... I loved this giant dragonfly in the pond...


... then to Bavarian Haus for lunch and German Beer...  I had the goulash..... oooooh


... Back home... I will sleep well tonight..

Righto, Gotto Go...off to see what others got up to making on Friday....
