weekend by the sea

This is one of my favorite places to visit in Brisbane. Tracey and I came out to visit our mum and dad who live on the water in Cleveland. It's such a peaceful coastal town, and we had some fun this week taking some photos in one our favorite little spots at Cleveland Point.
This place pictured above is a restaraunt/cafe called the lighthouse. It is very quaint and a lovely way to spend a lazy Sunday.

The lighthouse restaraunt looks out toward Stradbroke Island.

Picture taken of a bust hanging on our parents fence.

The sun was so bright you can't really see the gorgeous Rubie Green fabric coverd stools and Marilyn cushion. They do liik rather sensational, especially here in Queensland by the seaside.

Once again, the picture looks quite washed out from all the sun. The deck chair is covered in Megan fabric which represents Queensland lifestyle to a T. The sttolis yellow Tillinghast. Looks gorgeous really. I will take some better pictures when it's a little overcast.

nice way to spend the day!

Hope you all have a lovely and relaxed weekend and thankyou for all the wonderful comments we have received this week. You are all so sweet!

What gorgeous pics! The fabric choices are just perfect with the crisp white wood of the chairs & butlers tray! I used to work not far from Cleveland when we lived in BrisVegas, so know that lovely area very well.

The happiest of weekends to you both.

So amazing how many of you know Cleveland. It is such a picturesqe town. I can't believe both our parents live out there Anna.
I highly recommend Sunday lunch at the Lighthouse or dinner at the Courthouse resturaunt just down the road a little.

So many lovely things going on in your blog space, thanks for sharing with us all.
