“If you keep waiting for the right time, it may never happen. Sometimes you have to make the most of the time you have.”― Priya Ardis

I was booked to go on a girls weekend with my book club but as life often does, some unexpected issues arose and I needed to be home. Instead of cancelling completely, I just shortened the flight times. As a result, like a rock star, I flew to the Gold Coast for lunch.

My friends had given me the window seat, so I basked in the sunshine and sea air, while enjoying the fabulous meal at Rick Shores.

Decadent as it was, it was also restorative and just what the doctor ordered. I felt free and relaxed, something that's been missing of late, and I got to share some of the fun of the big group getaway, even if only for a few hours.

You can't pour from an empty cup as they say, but sometimes you just need to take some time for yourself to realise how full your cup really is.

I lamented  having to return to the airport but managed to read almost two books on the flights (and around the airports), so there was luxury in that too.

It was an extravagance I wouldn't have done if I already hadn't paid for the flights, but it was worth it and definitely was the right decision.

Sometimes you just have to make the most of what you can.

  1. It certainly was the right decision! Delightful pics.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself for a few hours. Getting away and visiting those you enjoy is a wonderful thing. The books are a wonderful way to pass the time while in the airport and in the plane.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  3. Looks like an enjoyable few hours. So very nice.

  4. Quality of the time you spend doing anything trumps quantity.

  5. Looks like it was a perfect time with friends. Love the beach shots.
