Feb 23, 2020 - Back to Nature

Arrived at Jane's around 1am this morning. Then after a few hours sleep we were wide awake. So tonight will be a very early to bed. Jane and I walked to the beach this afternoon and spotted thousands of soldier crabs, then the rainbow lorikeets were having a lovely time nibbling the fruit from the umbrella tree.

We arrived at Brisbane airport on Sunday morning after a long uneventful flight. Jane is looking after our bonsai and has decorated it with lovely lights. We went for a walk after dinner tonight as the weather has improved and we only had a couple oflight showers today.

A couple of nice light displays along the way.

Unfortunately, it was very windy and cold... we wanted to spend some time doing a few short hikes, however only spent a half hour or so on the beach and made our way out to mainland again. We drove to Glass House Mountains National Park. Named by Lieutenant Cook in 1770, the "Glass Houses" are distinctive volcanic plugs rising abruptly from a patchwork of farms and forests. These mountains are spiritually significant to the local Aboriginal people. The views from the top are wonderful. You can...
