As you can no doubt tell by now, James and I have been actively pushing ourselves to go somewhere new each weekend (instead of lazing around at home and blaming our lethargy on the “hectic work week”). As an incentive to get out and about, I started this Weekends with Angie & James blog series. Our journey began with a picturesque breakfast at Elephant Rock four weekends ago, followed by a lunch date in Brisbane the weekend after and lunch along the Surfers Paradise beachfront the weekend after that. Our latest adventure features the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens, a green space I’d been longing to visit ever since I discovered its existence almost five years ago.
After our nature-filled excursion, we had a lovely lunch at the famous Black Coffee Lyrics in Surfers Paradise, where I had the most amazing pulled pork and grated cheddar cheese burger. We’ll probably do a detailed write-up about BCL in a separate blog post in the future, so be sure to check back in a few!
