DH and I had a great night yesterday we went to see the Les Ballets Trockadoero de Monte Carlo and walked away with sore bellies, yes it is not your normal ballet. Its what you would call a play on the traditional ballet and do you laugh. They are such talented men and their version of the dieing swan was the best I had ever seen. After woulds we went for a walk through South Bank and got to hear them practice for a opera that was going to play there that night.
DH suggested we go on the Wheel of Brisbane (you think they would give it a better name than this), but as I am scared of these type of things I suggested he wait until we come back with the boys. They can do it together and I will go and have a coffee, sounds good.

Last time we where here these shade structures had just been put in, the affect now is breath taking as you walk in its a sea of purple and green very beautiful.

Their was photos along the walk way not sure what for as I could not read the signs to many people, love these two of the fig tree and the clothe line. I think it may have something to do with 150 year celebration of Queensland that has been running through the year.
Hope you have a great weekend Hugs Bec


  1. Oh Wow Bec, what a night!!! The ballet sounds fabulous, comedy ballet, great idea! I love the southbank pics, we used to live in Bris and I love southbank. The bouganvillea's look absolutely stunning now, how they have grown. When we lived there the Brisbane eye or wheel wasn't there. Glad you had a great time xo

  2. Well, I'm with you...I'd have to slip off for a coffee and skip the wild rides! But it sure does look amazing!

  3. What a great idea for a ballet show.
    Love the shady area. the coloour of those flowers is breathtaking
