Champagne Breakfast on the beach

Dave and I went out to celebrate the beginning of my birthday weekend  with a cocktail along the Strand last night, and started talking to  Sandy and Scott, a delightful couple who live here. We had a long chat about our lives and children, and what we were doing here. They asked us to join them and some friends,Teresa and John, for a champagne breakfast the following morning. We accepted their kind offer and met them at 9 at a picnic area on the Strand with stunning views of Magnetic Island and the Palms. In Australia and New Zealand they have tables, seats and  barbecues built into the parks, so you just bring your food and cook it there. We had a delicious traditional breakfast they kindly cooked for us.
