Our 13.5 hour flight was not too bad and I did get about 7 or 8 hours of sleep. Seeing the sunrise on the clouds from above was wonderful.
You can see the tip of the plane wing glowing in this photo.
Rose took a wonderful photo of the glowing wing from her window.
We were told that we would have to declare any fruits and/or nuts when we arrived in Brisbane. The flight attendant told me that I would have to throw them away. To make life easier, I threw away my wonderful gorp before I got off the plane. When I went through customs, they told me that I could have kept it. Oh well.
It rained a lot on our ride from Brisbane to Toowoomba. Marnie picked us up from the depot and took me directly to the Telstra store to get a sim card for my phone.
The Carnival of Flowers was taking place in Toowoomba right now. Because it was raining we attended some typical indoor exhibits that were taking place. First we went to see a quilt show. We voted for our favorite quilt.
Then we went to a tea-pot exhibit. There was a game where we had to find certain tea pots and record the case number where they were shown.
After we had lunch at Marnie’s, the sun came out. Marnie took us to Picnic Point. I loved the view of Table Top with the fog and clouds in the distance.
On a clear day we would have been able to see many small peaks and ranges. Of course, when I saw they were selling ice-cream in the restaurant, I had to have a salted caramel cone.
There are many Magpies in the area because it is swooping season. No photos yet.
It has been a wonderful day of sharing tine with 2 of my friends from our 2014 Camino de Santiago.
