Kalbar

Lunch today in the Brisbane outback
- not really outback -

Once outside Brisbane, we drove through green hills and paddocks to Kalbar where a charming little sandwich shop serves delicious Merlo flat whites.

Three women off for a chatty afternoon.

The hotel had the requisite males sitting outside on bar stools checking out the traffic - four automobiles besides ourselves.

The ladies behind the counter had a fine accent I failed to figure out.

The coffee was terrific. The salad yummy. The pumpkin quiche a new taste.

The company was the best. Two wise women, one with chocolate mouse, the other with an Aussie iced coffee (milk, coffee, vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream)

Enjoyed the quiet (which takes on new meaning in the middle of somewhere).

We found a house to buy - not the one in the picture, although it was for sale recently.

And in a relaxed ambiance, we found each another again. These two were my best mates at wedding time last March.

Good to have us all three together again.
