We arrived at our favourite place, Airlie Beach, on a cloudy day in late April. The weather gods played with us. Rain overnight and in the mornings, sunny afternoons and cool nights for the first ten days.
We spent some of the 2 weeks helping our dear friend Lea getting her five acres under control. Ian slashed and chopped and dug and replanted and whipper snipped and mowed and her property was a picture when we left in early May.
I was supposed to write while Ian did the work, but I spent most of the time walking around with my camera, chatting to Lea, and playing with rag doll Molly, and Ruby dog.

There were fabulous photo opportunities, pink moon, sunbird on the clothes line, catching up with locals, Danielle and her sweet Roman, Brian and Linda, and David R Garms, author (if you haven't read his book, make sure you do... an excellent read)
