In my last post I showed a few photos of the trip up to Mt.Isa. I never knew you were allowed to take photos while flying and was very happy when I was told it was alright as long as I didn't turn on my camera when taking off. Seeing as the 'old' planes now fly to Mt.Isa which don't have movies showing which used to keep me busy as I watched the kids' films like Happy Feet, I spent my time peering out the cabin window to see if there was any interesting areas we were flying over that those who haven't flown to the Outback may not have seen before.It was quite cloudy and stormy when we left but no rain fell in Mt.Isa unfortunately. It was lovely flying above the clouds and looking down at the barren landscape below as we made our way to Brisbane.
Don't you love the variety of colours in this parched land?
Eventually we flew over what I presume is a farming area....
...and saw this unusual pattern as gradually some green areas were visible.
Anyway, back to the scenery, I loved the patchwork look of these farms.
We always seem to fly over Brisbane for quite a while before landing as I guess the planes have to wait their turn. I turned the camera off at this stage until we were on the tarmac.
I hope that hasn't bored you but I always love to see the scenery in other bloggers' areas and in particular some of the overseas ones.
We are packed (I think) and ready to load up the little car and head to the Sunshine Coast tomorrow morning bright and early if we can get out of bed early enough. The holiday accommodation office rang today to say that they would be closed from midday until 3.30pm for the Melbourne Cup just in case I arrived during that time. Ha ha! I told her we should be there at 10am or so all being well. We can get straight into our unit so I should be able to have a Nanna nap before lunch. :-)
Some of the Jaboticabas are nearly ripe so I will be home too late to pick any but I am sure the CEO will have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Hopefully I will be able to check in from the beach to say hello. Have a great week everyone!
