We woke up nice and early, had some breakfast, packed our bag and were ready to leave. They picked us up around 10AM, we first went for a ride to see the new cruise ship dock in Brisbane (Dockside). It looked like a new hip area in Hamilton, a handful of restaurants, a few shops, movies theater, and great views. We went back to the car and headed towards Brett's Wharf, where we picked up the City Cat (water taxi) to take us to South Bank. The ride was nice, the sun was hot, great day to work on our tans
As the boat pulled up to let us out, you could see all of the people. What a busy day, I couldn't believe it. We eventually found a nice little spot under a tree right next to the pool where we hopped in. I took a little swim, while the kids and Robert snorkeled and played who could find the most treasure (coins and a piece of gold-foil). We decide to head to the other side of the pool where the beach was. The water was much warmer in the shallow area. Jacob and Jacinta were covering their feet in sand, when we asked them if they wanted us to bury them. Like any child they said -YES!. We had a good time and soon we were ready for lunch. We walked along a path that was used during Expo '88, now lined with little restaurants, even a Subway sandwich shop. But we decide to sit and have a drink with our meal, so we choose Amici's Cafe. They have everything from pizza, sandwiches, salads, pasta, and there desserts are to die for. After lunch around 4PM, we decided to call it a day. On the way back up the Brisbane River we noticed a house on top of a hill that looked like a castle. Soon we were on a little sightseeing trip looking for this house
When we arrived at Nadia and Luke's house, Nadia had prepared a wonderful Indian Curry meal for us. We had wonderful dessert, ice cream with fruit salad, oh so good. One of her friends Donnie came over, who just returned from England. She gave us a bunch of travel tips for Australia, which we desperately needed. After a great day, we called it a night. Tomorrow is New Years Eve..
