To Tamborine

We had a more quiet morning on Boxing Day - we visited my daughter and son, and the four grandchildren as they had all stayed overnight at the daughter's house - so there was a lot of noise and laughter.

Returning to Wakerley, we watched a little television - the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, and then the Cricket before we had a quick lunch and left just after 1 pm for a trip to Mt Tamborine, in the hinterland above the Gold Coast.

On the way we visited Bamboo Down Under (I am doing some research for something I am writing on Bamboo for uni).  It is such a wonderful place.  We could spend a whole day there.

There is so much bamboo growing and there is a maze, a bamboo tunnel and several places to meditate among the bamboo.
