Yesterday East, today South, tomorrow HOME

The past couple of days have been extremely busy! Yesterday, we drove east to Wynnum (Aboriginal word meaning Pandanus) and today we drove south to Mount Tambourine.

I've made it my mission to visit all ten of the Top 10 Parks in Brisbane and one of them is located in the seaside suburb of Wynnum. I should have guessed that the water would be much more attractive than the park itself.



Mount Tamborine is about 45 minutes from Brisbane and is a touristy town with a single main road of specialty shops and cafes. Well, many the specialty shops seemed to have closed down since my last visit. They used to sell various hand made arts and craft products but were exorbitantly priced. This trip didn't turn out as well for Aaron. After some fun in the park, he was too hot and tired to allow us any time to stroll around. I think we'll just stick around the house tomorrow to recuperate.

Looks good. How many of the 10 parks have you visited so far?

Touristy towns are all the same...expensive and lacking in character. The best spots are where the locals know to go, but we seldom visit long enough to learn where they are. Oh, well...

Will you have blogging cold turkey when you go on vacation to Gold Coast for 4 days next week like what captain Picard experienced?

I think I've been to 8 out of the 10 parks so far.

I forgot that I was going away next week (oh no! what about my blog!!). Another touristy town but this time they sell plenty of cheap stuff from China.
