Out For The Day

The water was shut off at our place all day, so we decided to go out…
It was a chance to do some things differently. We had a look around Inala to start with. There’s a large Vietnamese community there, and the boys were fascinated by all the vegetable and grocery items they didn’t recognise. We shared a cup of sugar cane juice, which was a lovely green and not as sweet as you would think. We had lunch there (pork buns and containers with meats, veg and noodles with varying sauces) and got some goodies to take home.

The boys chose the bean paste rolls (in the red bag) – yum! – and the variously flavoured jellies (we haven’t tried those yet). I went in to a few places before I found the ginger candy – I first tried it over 20 years ago, but don’t get to have it much now. It’s very nice but very hot!

Our next stop was Redbank Plains Library, another place we don’t often get to, then to the Ipswich Art Gallery, where we checked out works from the National Photographic Portrait Prize from last year, then up to the Kids’ Gallery to use various “drawing machines”.

Off home after the shops, where our water was back on again, and we could have a lovely cup of tea! 🙂
