holidays, back to work now – sigh

ok so now i’m back at work… back to the monotony… back to the long periods of sitting in my ergonomic chair yet slouched over somehow. oh what fun it is!

The 10 days we spent with our friends from melbourne (and a friend from brissy for the weekend) were pretty good. Took a bucketload of photos, all of which can be found here.
The main things we did were:

  • climbed the Q1 tower to the “QDeck” located in the heart of the Gold Coast city. Nice views!
  • Drove up the Sunshine Coast to Montville, then back via Maleny and Woodford
  • The missus and her friend went fishing. They caught a puffer toadfish!
  • sampled the fine wines and consumed an enormously expensive lunch at Sirromet
  • enjoyed a show at the Australian Outback Spectacular – a bit of australiana, fake damper (it was just a plain white bread roll you fools!)… 5 mins from my house.
  • drove up to O’Reilly’s and walked through the bush for a little bit, went on the treetop walk, and they even climbed 30m up a tree to a viewing platform.
  • Visited Alma Park Zoo – i hadn’t been there in ages, and none of the others had been there either.

I put together a little montage of a joey kangaroo being silly with his mum, some little monkeys trying to kill eachother, and a peakcock doing his thing:
