December 9. Day 344. Friends with benefits

 So when friends who have just bought a house on Stradbroke Island invite you over for the weekend, what are you to do?
Say "yes" or .... actually there is no or.
The only decision is what to pack (and what lie to tell the dogs because the house isn't canine friendly).
So at 11am we boarded the Stradbroke Island ferry at which time it was raining. Not the best start I admit. But after a delightful lunch and a nap the skies had cleared and it was perfect for a long walk along the beach.
I bet the couple with the afternoon beach wedding were even happier than we were about the change of weather. It was sweaty but the afternoon breeze was refreshing and because Drama Teen and I are soft, we were content to sit on the beach and watch as Peter and Alison stripped off and went for a swim. Then there was champagne and fresh prawns and oysters for dinner followed by games.
Yep, it's good to have friends with benefits.
