After nearly a week of keeping off my leg, and no work available, I made the most of this oppotunity to take the train to the city, for the 75th Anniversary of Brisbane City Hall's free lunchtime concerts.
The camera was my companion, but I wasn't really expecting to use it. On this occasion, I chose to detrain one stop further on to usual. Less walking and I thought less interesting. I was pleasantly surprised.
The lovely facade of an 1884 hotel.
Geoffry Ricardo's sculpture titled - 'Emblem'.
A humerous and playful re-imagining of the kangaroo from The Australin Coat of Arms.
The sudden appearance of the city skyline.
Rays of clouds bursting from the bulidings.
An awesome sky enhancing the lines of City Hall.
The Rythmn Society Dance Orchestra, joined by swing dancers of the 30's and 40's were sensational on the City Hall stage, but photography was not allowed. Following this concert, Brad Leaver's 3 piece Swing Central Jazz band entertained us in King George Square.
The stitches are out [after14 days] and I am pleased to report that the specialist is very happy with the healing process. Great care will now be taken to prevent it being bumped! No hiking yet.
Below are 2 of many birds that dropped by to say hello as I kept my leg elevated.
My specialist has his rooms at Nerang, just on the fringe of the Gold Coast. My sister-in-law lives at the southern end of the Coast. We had a parcel to collect from her and decided to continue on down after my stitches were removed.

Life is good. I would love to read your comment.
