So you can guess where we headed today....Australia Zoo

We headed past the big lawn mower, we tried to make a stop at the Glass House Mountains look out but the drive in was rough & the lookout turned out to be a level 4 hike up a mountain so we talked about 50m enough to say we had done a bit & back down.

Majority of our day was spent at Australia Zoo it's such a big place you do need all day. We just explored the animals & watched the show at the Crocoseum. Made a new friend along the way


Tried to blend in with the locals
(Sorry all the photos are selfie I haven't had time to download the ones on my camera)

We took a quick detour to see the big pineapple....

Before landing in Noosa for the night and what a better way to end the day with a trip to the beach

Climbing a Meccano Bridge

Fear of heights pushed aside this morning as some stupid idiot (me again) thought it would be cool to climb the Story Bridge "everyone climbs the Sydney Harbour Bridge..." we donned prison like suits and trekked up the bridge. The worst part was the walkway underneath as soon as we were up at car level nerves were overtaken by adrenaline. We climbed over 1,000 steps & rose 80m above sea level and you know what I loved it!!!! It really did look like it was made of Meccano, not sure how I felt about the guys tightening the screws while we were up there.



Fish & chips by the Brisbane River was well I've had better F&C but it was nice sitting by the river. We explored South Bank and even stuck our feet on the 'beach'. Such a nice green space, plenty of playgrounds, grass areas & massive trees but the bit that got me was the number of lizards!!!



Over a pedestrian bridge & into the City Botanical gardens we four went, it was nice & cool and you guessed it more lizards.

Rain rain go away and take the wind with you

Weather turned to complete s--- today, rain, strong winds, didn't want to let up so it stopped us seeing some of the places along the Snaefellsnes Peninsula (insert sad face) but that's life.

We managed to see the Skardsvik beach before it started raining, love the rocks of lava sitting on the edge like coal, where the black sand blends with the white, even the drive in looked pretty.







So really we drove round the peninsula battling the strong winds & beating rain back to where we started at Stykkisholmur where our kind land lady made us hot coffee and we settled in to the sitting room with our iPads.

Rain sun waterfall & repeat

Are you ready for this ........






Dyrholaey Nature Reserve

Black beach

My sandcastle


And these are our wheels

Now that your all jealous & hate me I'll tell you there was a safety issue with the car we originally had so had to be transferred to another place, delaying our start. It's rained on & off all day, meaning not only did we get wet from waterfall spray but also soaked walked up to the glacier. The wind is cold when your clothes are wet. But hey that is life & we are rolling with the punches & enjoying ourselves
