Our Beautiful Bay

We have cured our cabin fever with a drive to Redcliffe one of our Bayide suburbs across the Brisbane river.  Now I warn you lots of know I just cannot post one! It was a glorious, sunny day and the bay looked a picture.
There were also markets on the esplanade...
Mr R. and I had a lovely casual lunch here..
With views across the road to the bay. After which we went to view what we really came to see...
We have always been huge fans...
It is quite nicely done and the photographs are wonderful...quite a trip down memory lane...of course like all teenage girls I really fancied Barry Gibb!
This Mr R. tells me this the first Bee Gees Album that he bought.

The bronze statue of the boys as youngsters is very sweet with a lovely poem written I think by Barry at their feet.
All those yellow plaques are their songs...
A really lovely tribute to them and the place where they started.
We had quite a nice wander through one of the parks and the natives were really putting on a show.
The local residents were having an enjoyable day too...
On the way home folks were flying kites...
We had such a lovely time.....we even bought home some goodies from the markets. Some verrrry good and some....well a bit naughty!
Naughty but oh so nice!
I hasten to add that I am NOT responsible for the cupcakes!
I hope you have enjoyed your Sunday doing something that you love to do.
Namaste and Blessings,
