Good Times!!

Good friends of ours Al and Mike share the same birthday and so celebrated together (Al was the big 50) aboard the river cruiser  "James Cavill" The theme for the evening was PURPLE!!!!!!! Our friend Marina came as the "Phantom" (photo didn't turn out) It was hilarious as she was dropped off in the park while our other friend Alison parked the car. I so wanted to see the expressions on the dog walkers in the park as the "PHANTOM" lurked amongst the trees LOL! I aplogise for the photos I couldn't seem to get the settings right. So the people in "Purple" are myself and Al in the middle with Alison and Marina on each side of us. My husband unimpressed about having his photo taken at the back of the boat, myself, and photos of our lovely bridges and city by night. We cruised down to the Port of Brisbane and up to the Regatta hotel. I just couldn't believe how beautiful and peaceful our river looked and it seemed so long ago that it was so devastated and yet it was mere months ago. It felt so alive with the "city cats"criss crossing  the river ferrying people to their evenings out. The city skyline lit up was lovely  and magical (I haven't done it justice). It was a tad chilly but there was great music, a spot of dancing, good food & drinks for some......and lots of laughter. Huge cupcakes with yummy chocolate frosting was the "Birthday cake"....... Delish! You know how I love cupcakes.....Al even gave me a little doggy bag with 1 each for today.
A good time was had by all................
