Day 13

What a fabulous day!

Helen packed a picnic lunch and we set off for a tour of parts of Queensland's Scenic Rim - it has glorious scenery but the pics don't do it justice.

The pictures show Mount Maroon and Mount Blarney and there were quite a few tourists about taking pictures.

Clever use of a garden fork!

We had a good look at the homestead at the Mt Blarney resort and were taken by the unusual use of a garden fork!

There were a lot of people visiting the resort and the food stall was doing a good trade. We had our lunch on a grassy patch near the creek - lovely chicken rolls.
Thanks Helen!

On the way back we stopped as a place selling lots of different healthy products like honey, lavender etc.,  plus there were alpaca wool garments for sale with a lady demonstrating spinning alpaca wool.

Lovely mountain backdrop for the alpacas

Strong wind gusts had the alpaca products flying but we helped retrieve them. With our own (really Sue and Shaun's) pacas having a new little crea that has to be bottle fed at the moment, I had an interesting and helpful chat with the alpaca lady.
