Road Trip

Well it wasn't so much Thelma and Louise, as Sheryl and Marisa. And not so much a road trip, as a Sunday drive (on a Saturday!)  But with my buddy visiting for a week to escape Melbourne's cold, I was eager to show her some of the beautiful countryside in southeast Queensland, so hit the road we did!

First stop, Boonah, in the Scenic Rim, about an hour's drive from Brisbane and one of my favorite day trips.

Bought a gorgeous pendant like this one at Art and Soul Gallery.

We stopped for lunch at the Commercial Hotel.

Friendly locals in the public bar.

Then took in the scenery at Kooroomba Winery and Lavender Farm.

Orange trumpet vine (Pyrostegia venusta)

Take me home, country road

Renovator's delight!

Beautifully restored shops...

and B&Bs, in neighbouring Kalbar.

Why do we so often wait for visitors before getting out to explore our own neck of the woods?
