JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Reef Feast Palm Cove

Our friends invited us to Palm Cove for the recent Reef Feast.  Williams Esplanade is closed to all traffic for the entire length and the restaurants set up marquee stalls and sell one or two of their signature dishes on smallish plates for either $5 or $10.  Wow......so many to choose from.  We walked the entire esplanade to check out the food on offer and after a beer for the boys and a glass of wine for the ladies we then made our way back.  We tried Paella, Pork Belly, Pork Sliders, Beef Sliders, Moreton Bay Bugs and Crab Tartlets.  There were three entertainment areas set up along the length of the esplanade and you could choose to listen to country, blues, jazz or rock.  The young boys that formed part of a blues band were very good and we stopped and listened/danced to their music for awhile.
After this we decided to take a walk along the jetty.  It is a fisherman's paradise although talking to the fishermen/women the fish were not biting.  It really was quite windy.
It was a lovely night and when we got back to the unit we sat outside on the spacious balcony and enjoyed the balmy night with a nightcap in hand.

The photos are really terrible because my little Olympus just didn't want play along with me! Sigh....

I wonder if our friends know they have identical strolls!

I wonder what the joke was......
