We had dinner at the Gardens Cafe a couple of nights ago with some visiting friends. The cafe has only been opening at night for a few weeks, the food is very fancy but tasted delicious.
This is my dinner - I can;t remember all of it, but it was chicken wrapped in prosciutto with vegies and a wild raspberry sauce - from raspberries grown at the Gardens.
I thought the dessert, balsamic strawberries with native rosellas and vanilla icecream would not be too large or too rich, but Bill had to finish mine off - which he didn't mind at all!
I have shown you photos taken in daylight of the sugarcane wall, but there is now a spotlight on it at night with a very dramatic effect.
Today we had a birdwatching walk in the Gardens for the Friends group and Maya had set up this wonderful collection of bird nests for us to look at. She has collected them over a few years from various locations around Mackay.
Some of them are really intricate and a few are just a mess!
I haven't done anything creative since before the Olympics started - sock knitting can happen while I am watching! Some of it has been very exciting, but I think it will be just as well to get back to normal next week.
