Weekend at Straddie

'Straddie' or Stradbroke Island is a large sparsley populated island in Moreton Bay off the Queensland coast.  Earlier in the year David and I joined three other couples for a weekend there.  We had all met in Papua New Guinea some years back and try to get together at least a couple of times a year.  It's always lots of laughs, good food and occasionally a little too much wine.
This scene is from the verandah of the house in which we stayed.  The verandah overlooked Cylinder Beach. 
The weather was variable.  Most of the time it drizzled rain.  Once we had a ferocious electric storm which was deafening.  Not that it spoiled our weekend.  I painted these small paintings as a gift for each couple.  I will be posting them off tomorrow - I hope they like them.
