Last Weekend’s Redcliffe Trip

DSCN7408Last Saturday me and Mum drove up to Redcliffe for fish & chips. It was raining when we got up there, and the fish and chips were awful, but eventually the rain cleared up and we had a nice a wander along the coast.

It was nice to see so many families about having barbeques or going for swims in the beach or the man-made ‘lagoon’. Actually, the lagoon was packed – a true sign that school holidays are a long way from being over.

Got some cool pictures of the rocky beaches with all the seaweed washed up, and if you saw my post from yesterday you’ll know there was heaps of jellyfish washed up too.

I love red dirt. Red was my favourite colour as a kid (I don’t really have a favourite now) and seeing that lovely dark red always cheers me up.

Red dirt! Love it!

Found some nice flowers growing about too…

We finished our walk at the pier, and then worked our way back through the shops. Ate at Banjo’s cafe which I was surprised to find. It seemed to be everywhere in Hobart when I last visited, but this is the first time I’d seen one in Queensland. Or maybe I just hadn’t been looking.DSCN7451It was nice to play tourist in our own backyard. It’s easy to forget how a forty minute drive can be enough to get a change of scenery and inspire you to go exploring. We walked for about an hour and a half, and I was a bit shattered by the end (messed up low blood sugar and other rubbish. Should have had something healthier after the terrible fish and chips. I dunno…)

Do you ever play tourist? I feel sorry for all my American friends who are stuck inside for the foreseeable future, but never fear! The snow’s gotta stop at some point!

 

 

 

Risking Ruin by Mae Wood .99cents in Kindle Countdown Deal!

23598043

Mae Wood’s Risking Ruin is now 0.99cents! This Kindle Countdown Deal is running from Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th. Click on the cover to see it in Amazon 🙂

I have just started reading this so will hopefully get a review up before the sale ends.

Marisa Tanner’s most important client, multi-billion dollar family-owned Brannon Company, has been sued by nine of its employees for sexual harassment. Marisa is a pro at handling sexual harassment allegations, but will she be able to handle the CEO’s prodigal son as well as she can handle the lawsuits?

Clients are off-limits and Marisa could lose her law license and livelihood, but Memphis playboy Trip keeps making strong plays for her.

Their attraction is undeniable and chemistry electric. Can she have her career and Trip, too, or will she have to choose?

A steamy debut novel by Mae Wood, “Risking Ruin” is a standalone novel that blends the worlds of chick-lit and romance to create a world filled with strong characters in the lush environment of Memphis, Tennessee.
