Empty streets and botanic garden

Hi everyone! The Easter long weekend is soon over and I must admit, I’m not feeling 100% about waking up at 5:30am tomorrow to go to work. However, this work week is just four days long and on Wednesday, I’m going to do a ceramic class with my friend Merrille. I’m so excited and hope I’ll bring something home that can actually be displayed and used.
When Jarryd had a look at his step counter app, he noticed we had only done 2000 steps for the whole day. We were not satisfied with our performance and decided to put our shoes and rain jackets on and head out for a stroll in the city to increase those steps.
The rain had stopped for a little while, but signs of the earlier rains could be seen everywhere.
A usually busy street was very empty on this Easter Sunday. I guess many people had swapped Brisbane city for camping or a weekend by the beach.
But that was only appreciated because Jarryd could teach me how to properly use the phone camera without herds of people around.
We found some cool lights!
This morning Jarryd and I went to the Mt Coot-Tha Botanic Gardens with Merrille and Phil for a Sunday (officially Monday) morning stroll. We had some breaky and met some feathery friends.
Now it’s almost 3:30pm and I’m going to take down my home office because it’s time to move back to the “normal” office tomorrow morning. Jarryd is cooking a Greek feast tonight and the chicken is currently marinating. We’ll continue and watch last episode of Formula 1. I really, really hate cards, but I really like this show. Hope you all have an amazing end of your Easter break and stay safe!

Hiking and photography at Mt Coot-Tha

Hi all! Here’s a video from my hike in Mt Coot-Tha last Saturday. I took the opportunity to try my new smartphone tripod (it had to endure water for this video). Enjoy the beautiful forest, the creeks, the amazing animals and amazing view of the city of Brisbane in Queensland.
