Coolangatta … some of you will know that this is my favourite place to be! Its beauty can not be captured by photo’s… one has to be there! We took Nan there last Sunday not only to show her around but also to browse among the stuff at the Flea Market. Marlize was lucky not to be working so she went along. As you can see it was a perfect day! Sometimes I wish I could have you all here so you can enjoy it too. Have a look at the pics.

Tamborine Mountain

Just a quick update! My mom is really enjoying her stay here and to say that she’s in awe when she experience the beauty all around her: is an understatement! I am so happy for her. She deserves to have a lovely time. Don’t they all? We took her to Mount Tamborine last Saturday and I managed to upload some of the photos. Mt Tamborine is only about 20 minutes drive from home. We didn’t plan to do the walking tracks but did manage to give her a sneak preview. On our way down we came across a beautiful bride in a horse and carriage. I managed to take a photo while driving – from the passenger seat of course! To know more about Tamborine Mountain, here’s the link

A very important visitor

There is a reason why I haven’t updated my blog .... Apart from getting everything ready for her, she arrived here on Monday night! Yes I am talking about my mom! We haven’t seen her for almost 3½ years! Welcome Mom! Hope your time here with us will be nothing but unforgettable! Oh and by the way: we have a H U G E surprise for her! Please keep it a secret!!! We bought tickets to see AndrĂ© Rieu!!!!! He will be at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on October 22nd! She is going to be blown away when we tell her! I am just as excited! In the meantime I will do my very best to keep you updated on what is happening in our lives.... :) ♫♪ ♪ ♥

Miami Beach

Isn't this just beautiful? We had to pick Gerard up from school because he had a drivers license test. Well we thought it might be a great idea to go much earlier so we could drive all along the beach instead of the motorway. We have never been to Miami Beach itself and we got more than we have bargained for! A breathtaking view! And of course my son got his license! Congrats Darling!
