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.

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.
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.

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.
