The weather forecast was awful for our recent post-Christmas picnic.
Early morning that day  saw heat and humidity and mid-morning, black skies and rain. But Bearbrass Probus was undaunted. Fourteen members and friends arrived laden with food treats at Point Park by the city’s river, and the air became cool with light refreshing breezes. The park was delightful with its grove of trees, excellent tables and views of busy life on the river and residential towers behind.
We tucked into the feasts, enjoyed each other’s company and afterwards adjourned to the 21st floor apartment of one of our couples for coffee and even more splendid panoramas of the clean-washed city. In arranging this event our committee took a gamble on both the weather and whether people would come so soon after Christmas – and got it right for both.
Congrats all round!
