RAMBLING AROUND REDCLIFFE

Last week we went to Redcliffe with our cameras. Redcliffe is situated on a peninsula sticking out into Moreton Bay. It was actually the first site for the settlement of Brisbane but later the settlement moved to Brisbane River where there was a better fresh water supply. After that it became a place to go on weekends or for a holiday. Now it is an easy day trip. There are many restaurants and other activities to do there.
It is school holidays and many children have sailing lessons.

Bay beaches don't have any surf but fun for beach combing.


 Love the symmetry of the pier.

 We walked around the edge of the bay.
 Bill and Will on the look out for photo opportunities. The bay on one side and the swimming pool on the other.

 We were having summer temperatures in Spring. (We are back to cooler days now)

We walked back up to the road and we could see over the pool and the bay.

  1. It's a pretty area. I can remember when it seemed such a long way from Brisbane. Do cities shrink as we get older like our childhood homes do?

  2. Gazing at your post and the looking out of my window at the impending storm I have a sudden urge to return to my former antipodean life for the winter. Sadly it's no longer an option. But I can dream.

  6. We are experiencing summer like fall weather and actually were swimming in the lake Sunday a week ago. This Sunday was more fall like as we went to a farmer's market fest .lots of fun for kids and we had joy watching them.
    You certainly had a great time as photos suggest.

  9. Such fun boats for the children with those colorful sails. We don't see those here. It looks more like summer than spring.

  10. Nice photo outing, Diane. Your crowd scenes always look good -- I never seem to get that (among all the many other good photos I never seem to get)..

  11. Lovely summery scenes although I daresay you are happy for a return to the cooler weather before the summer really does hit. I really enjoyed seeing Redcliffe for the first time in years.

  16. Great place for photography for sure.... What is your favorite season there? Seems like all of your seasons are nice.... We are going into Fall ---which I love.... Summer is my least favorite season (even though I do love our Roses/flowers) because I don't like the HEAT.... When it cools off in Fall, I LOVE it.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  19. Oh, I enjoyed my little walk around the bay. The sun is shining here too but it doesn't have any warmth any more. So it's lovely to check in to the tropics for a while, even virtually.

  20. That certainly looked like a nice outing and a very warm day with all those folks gathered around the pool. I can imagine the walk will be just as lovely once the cooler weather settles in and hope you will take us on another stroll.

  21. What a pretty area. I miss beachcombing. I'm always looking at the rocks I se eon hikes here hoping to find an arrowhead, but they are getting rare.

  22. You have a photo of my eldest grandson on one of those boats! In addition, I just learned that, living in Wenlock Street, you were a very short distance away from my 95 year old friend whom I visited at least twice a week for over twenty years. Sadly she didn't achieve her goal of 100 and passed away in our home earlier this year, ending our association with Whitfield Ave. She was a member of the local Garden club which I think you may have mentioned some time back.
