April 17. Day 107. Best foot forward

When you holiday in a different city, you tend to spend a lot of time on foot.
So it has been for our visitors. They've covered a lot of ground in two weeks. From Byron Bay to Bribie they've visited beaches and mountains. They've fed dolphins at Tangalooma and kangaroos and rainbow lorikeets at Lone Pine. Closer to (my) home we've taken them to check out the view from Mount Coot-tha and the facilities at the University of Queensland. South Bank, the Botanic Gardens and Roma Street Station have all been ticked off.
But there was one thing  wasn't aware needed to be on an English visitors' guide to Brisbane - the nail salon. I learned today that while we may have nail salons breeding like rabbits it's not such a thing in Cornwall. Massage chairs, rows of vanishes and cheese grater style dead skin removers are not common place. They'd been told they needed a pedicure and I was happy to facilitate. After all that walking, it seemed only fair. And after that it was back on foot for a stroll with the dogs along the Kangaroo Point cliffs.
