|There were just a handful of people waiting at the food tents|
As with every Australia Day Celebration, there was quite a large Police contingent everywhere including officers on horses at the southern end of the Goodwill Bridge.

The sky looked ominous and we were not sure if we were getting a soaking. But we carried on over the bridge.

The Goodwill Foot Bridge leads under the Captain Cook Bridge, the main arterial road into Brisbane.

I had to change the memory card in my camera, so I took the opportunity to try the new card on a pair of feet.

Again there was a police present on the northern side of the bridge, cops on bikes.
|Are they looking for new recruits? Sorry, lady, too old.|
The sky was getting darker, so we trundled back over the bridge looking for a place to eat.

In the end, we decided to walk down to the Plough-Inn, where we found a table on the upstairs terrace for a nice lunch.
Then we walked back to the bus station where a 555 bus was just arriving to take us back to Loganholme to pick up the car for home. A nice day out for the Romans and the Bohlens.
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY everybody
