Hello Sunday. 5th of July 2015

Hello Sunday. We, along with 74000 others, headed in to town to celebrate The Story Bridges 75th birthday. It was a beautiful winters day in Brisbane.

We caught the train in. It was the first time in over 10 years that I have caught  train. Not a lot had changed except for the scenery. Funny how when you look for landmarks that you remember as a kid that it a wave of nostalgia sweeps over you when they are still there. A short walk through Fortitude Valley & we hit a wall of people. I could not believe the crowds! OK, so I thought that it might be busy & a little crowded but it was a whole lot more than that! After a 30 minute wait in a sardine packed line, we made it onto the bridge. It would have been no longer than 2 minutes and we turned around and walked back off. The crowd was just too much. If they ever do something like this again, maybe they should open the bridge to foot traffic & have the food trucks in the surrounding streets. 

Off to Chinatown for a spot of shopping & lunch. I love visiting the Asian supermarkets in China town. I was able to pick up a few soup bowls & spoons to replace the ones that had been broken over the years. And a big arse bamboo steamer to cook pork buns!!!!! A few other bits & pieces may have also made it into my shopping basket. 

So we have learnt our lesson, never go to a bridge birthday party because everyone else in the whole city wants to go too!
