Last weekend I went to lunch with some friends that I have known since high school days. We get together several times a year to catch up talk and about what's going on in our lives. It was my turn to organize it and I held it at my local club. Clubs here are usually affiliated with sporting bodies, or worker's unions or returned servicemen's organizations or such. They have bars and poker machines but also family friendly restaurants and bistros and function rooms, their own movie theatres and increasingly, fitness centres. It is a curious Australian mix of something for everybody. Anyway , this one has an excellent bistro, so we met there.
I also happened to notice the wonderfully reflective windows of the atrium at the front entrance as I was going down the circular drive tot he car park.
Not quite Vegas, but we do have palm trees. This has been known to amaze Canadian visitors."You guys have palm trees growing in your front yards!" We went, "Um, yeah?" It's funny what you take for granted until someone points it out ...
I'd love to end this story with photos of my friends, taken inside but I am careful not to blog photos of family or friends without their permission.
The Christmas decorations were up and it was a very enjoyable lunch.
