Ally’s Day Out

St Patrick’s Day 17th March 2021.Last Wednesday night I created a blog ‘A Bit of Craic’, published it, then something went horribly wrong, couldn’t fix it and had to trash it.17th March I went on a Seniors Bus Trip with Cross Country Tours. Left home at 8am and hopped onto to the tour bus at 8.30am. The weather was wet and miserable.We travelled from Brisbane towards the Sunshine Coast. About 10am we stopped at a park in a little country town ( might have been at Beerwah), found a covered area and had morning tea.We then travelled through a delightful country town called Buderim.At 11.30am we arrived at Coolum which has a coastal location.Our venue was Coolum Beach Hotel. The rain didn’t stop for anyone, we managed to get inside without getting drenched. β˜”πŸ™‚.There were two hundred of us for the function, 4 tour buses and also a charter bus.The hotel was decorated up for St Patrick’s day. I managed to sit at the of a table, better than being squashed in, and of course no social distancing.I met new people and made new friends for the day, who knows I might see them again on another day out.The next photo is me sitting there relaxed, amused and totally entertained.The next few photos brought a smile to my faceThen came the lunch yum yum yum Beef and Guinness Pie with mash πŸ˜‹The function ended at 2pm . Prior to leaving we all stood up and sang Danny Boy. I had a wonderful day out.

    1. The pie was about the size of a saucer , made with I think with a short pastry, it definitely wasn’t flakey but oh so delicious. The last time I was at a busy function was at the Christmas luncheon organised by the same company. I am thinking of booking for Christmas in July.

    1. It was a fun St.Paddy’s Day. My part of the seems to be returning to normal although I notice not everywhere as some cafe’s are still restricting seating , also waiting lines at the checkout are requesting social distancing. All that could change at anytime, another Covid-19 cluster and lockdown will happen again. I am enjoying life the best way I can πŸ™‚πŸŒΌπŸŒ»πŸŒΉπŸŒΊπŸ¦‹


    1. It was a pleasant day Becky, I am pleased I made the effort to go. We needed the rain but now we have had enough but I shouldn’t complain because the dams were low here in Queensland. Serious flooding happening right now in NSW.
