Thinking back a year & all who suffered in the floods.
Soggy day in Brisbane
Right from the off today didn’t look too promising & it didn’t disappoint!!
First stop was the Gabba, the scheduled game was called off when we got there but we still were able to walk round the whole of the outside & take some pictures.
Next stop was Brisbane CBD. The place is full of shopping malls & tons of shoppers ………. being only 2 weeks before xmas I guess that’s why!!
Ian managed to get a few bargins right from the off & once we left the main mall we were in we hit the shopping lanes big time …………. the UGG shop just jumped out & hit me & after much persuading from Ian I brought a pair of UGG boots & some UGG ear muffs & learnt the genuine from the fake UGG’s. Shame all the time we’ve been told in the UK that the “real” UGG’s have a large G in the middle but they are actually the manufactured in China boots for the mass market for export!! Guess they realise the consumer believe’s what they are told!
The rain steadily came down so we popped into an Irish bar for a nice refreshing drink before setting off again & having a trip across the water & a walk (in the rain!) before heading back again to the shopping side. I managed to keep Ian away from the shops this time!
With weary feet we headed back for the bus & back to the site where after a nice shower we had yet another tea consisting of steak!!
Tomorrow we head off for Byron Bay but we’re taking the coast road instead of the boring main highway!
