We had a gorgeous day out yesterday with homeschooling friends at Maleny. It's a beautiful spot overlooking the Glasshouse Mountains; the view is amazing and I could've spent all day just gazing out to the south. We walked around, chatted and laughed, explored secret gardens and ate some really good scones with jam and cream. Our admission included entry to their giant bird aviary filled with friendly birds from all over the world. I have a hard time seeing birds in cages but this one was pretty big and the birds were absolutely beautiful. We all got pecked but at least not pooped on this time!
