Linda's visit - Introduction

From Linda's visit to Australia
Gee, when I look at the sidebar it is obvious that October was a very, very busy month. And, so too, the first part of November. I'm finally getting something of a breather. I'm blessed with NO SICK ANIMALS in the hospital today and so our trip to Mount Cotton to see the B-52's will only be challenged by sun burn, heat stroke, dehydration, mousquito bites, and just plain sore bottoms from waiting for 6 or 7 hours for the show to begin. Yay!

But, that wasn't supposed to be the point of the post. (See title.) Two of these last weeks were spent with Kevin's mother. It was her first visit to our home and to Australia. This required travel time and touring. Yay! We love showing guests around. Unlike Flat Stanley, Linda was able to take her own photographs, so I only have about 200 new ones. Don't worry. They won't all appear here.

Kevin took his mother around to see things in the city - Fortitude Valley (China Town), City Hall (Clock Tower), Queen Street Mall, Mt Cootha lookout... Those days I worked. (He is the one with the "generous" vacation package. Mine was pretty much already consumed by two trips home in the last 12 months.) The point of this is there are absolutely no photographs.

I did take off the two weekends and the Monday and Tuesday of her visit. Therefore, I got to also enjoy the Glass House Mountains, Australia Zoo, Mary Cairncross Reserve, Sydney(!!), and the Tangalooma Resort on Moreton Island(!!!). What follows is a brief review.

Follows, that is in separate posts.
