A nice day out.

Yesterday Mr R. and I drove north to visit my wonderful best friend Ann in her gorgeous new is so beautiful. I am so thrilled for her as it is has been her dream for quite a while.
Ann has settled right in and has been making the most devine cards (some of which she gave me to for a giveaway later) She also showed me 2 beautiful framed Christmas pieces she made and one still under construction...oh so lovely!
We decided seeing as we were up that way we would visit Noosa and Tewantin where we spent our honeymoon and many holidays in our early married life. Boy has it changed. We haven't been there for quite sometime and if I am honest we were a little sad. I had planned to stop and go for a nice walk at Noosa but it was akin to a lunatic assylum and not a car park to be no photos at Neussa! as David Wenham says. We went on to Tewantin and we could see elements that remained the same and so we stopped at the Marina and had some yummy fish and chips while listening to a little group of musicans playing and singing.
We then had a wander around the wharf and looked at all the boats and of course had to have a pic taken.....realised after posting these photos a hair brush and a bit of makeup wouldn't have gone astray. Ah well! At least you get to see the real me in my natural state. No airs and graces here I'm afraid. It was lovely to revisit these memories together and we cannot believe we have been married for 40 years later this year.

It was a lovely day. So good to spend time with my dear friend (it's still too far up the highway!) and I miss her so much but it is wonderful to see people you care about happy.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Blessings Michelle xx
