Post 18 – Brisbane

Today we said goodbye to Don after buying some Pure Wine Drops in the booze shop (a special order for a certain wine loving relative of Diana’s in New Zealand – ooops, there goes our offer of accommodation!) and headed south to Brisbane. The weather was absolutely foul for the journey, and on the motorway there was such an intense squallat one point that it was just like someone suddenly throwing a white sheet over the windscreen. However, we arrived safely at the B&B in Brisbane, Cream Gables run by a charming lady called – yes, you guessd it – Anne!

We went for a walk along the river grabbing a bite to eat on the way, then returned to the B&B to prepare for our flight to Canberra tomorrow and await Doris who joined us for a convivial dinner under umbrellas in the rain (see the photo below).

  1. Yes, we remember those river walks, as we were in the Riverside Hotel – hope
    it wasn’t too flooded last year. We went on a minibus ride to an Aboriginal
    site (complete with tearoom!) above the river, with good views
