Recently a family friend set sale with a group of ladies in a yacht in the Brisbane to Gladstone race. Mum and I dropped a small group of the ladies to Shorncliffe (Brisbane North), the race start line. I was able to board their yacht, check out under deck and take a few snaps. There is definitely something about being on a beautiful yacht, admiring its craftsmanship and enjoying its gentle creaking as it waited patiently tied to the jetty.
To me boats are symbols of lands awaiting to be discovered, adventures yet to happen and islands to be explored. I even once had a dream of sailing the Mediterranean, stopping in at ports to embrace different cultures of the area, indulge on their cuisines and enjoy all they had to offer. Funny, I have only remembered all of this now. I must bring it up with the kids tonight and see what they think of the idea. Who knows....perhaps when they're older???
Okay enough daydreaming for now (though it's always plenty of fun!). What I would love to say now is a HUGE thank you to Michelle Mitchell for being part of the VBLL April Give Away. I really appreciate it and after using random number picker would like to congratulate Tammi from Little Poppa as our winner. After re-reading your comment Tammi, I really feel you will benefit from reading "What Teenage Girls Don't Tell Their Parents".
Have a wonderful glorious day all. The sun is shining here today (yesterday was overcast and only suitable for snuggling up with a good book).
PS Did anyone notice they had Bananas stored away above? In QLD we are buying banana's for almost $13/kilo. I am beginning to miss them.
