Left for Brisbane arriving at the airport early, so they put us on a flight that left 60 mins before the one we had booked onto which was great. Taxi to the Stanford Plaza hotel which is right on the waterfront. Checked in and then went exploring , ending up in Quenns street shopping Mall. It was 31 degrees , and the sun was shining so we had lunch and as luck would have it,a street band set up and started playing some R&B so I had a pint and chilled and Linda went shopping. Jumped on the free ferry from North shore back to a Eagle pier. Sat around the pool , jumped in and did 60 lengths, came back and got ready to have a few drinks in the forecourt of the hotel. Had a nce steak meal in the restuarant opposite- a shared 1 kg, rump, wagmyu steak!- it was nice , but i prefer fillet!
