My Sunday Photo 26 July 2015


at the dinosaur discovery exhibition at the Queensland Museum  

I believe this is a "Nessie" - a plesiosaurus.  My sister, nephew and I had a great day at South Bank this week, just the 3 of us.  We went up on the Wheel (a belated birthday gift), then wandered up to the Museum to check out the dinosaurs. Thankfully we were there after the school hordes had left so had peace and time to wander around at our leisure.  Gotta love a dinosaur!

  2. Isn't it amazing how old these bones are, and that they're there for us to see, fully intact. So incredible! Hope you had a great day!

      it was a really fun day. my sister lives down the coast so we don't see each other all that often so it was terrific to catch up.:)
