On Saturday we went up to the mountains near Goldcoast. We headed up to this quaint little polish place. Where we had morning tea (which I have discovered is basically an excuse to constantly eat all day long). Here we had tea or hot chocolate in my case, and cake while being mobbed by a flock of lorikeets. They really weren't all that bad until one of them flew into my head. At that point I no longer really cared for the obnoxious little pidgies. I relented once in my quest to chase them off, for a quick camera shot with one on my shoulder and two in my hand. The tea was lovely.
             After that we had a little jaunt through the woods. Where we hiked down to some waterfall thing... that was completely dry! On the plus side the woods were really nice and I enjoyed the walk. It's a beautiful place.
             After our time in the mountains we headed back into town. Here we saw "The largest building... that people live in." The Q1 building is the largest residential building in the world. Which places it as the 20th largest building in the world. Not much of a claim to fame, but they are rather proud of it. The most amazing thing about it as the air show we saw doing fly-overs of the Indy race. That part was cool. It was an okay Saturday, all things considered.
