Last week we took some friends from the village to visit Hinze Dam. They are new to Australia from England. They have moved here to be nearer their family who live in Springwood the same suburb as our village. We thought our move from the next suburb was emotional but to move from the other side of the world at our age, I admire them.
The Hinze Dam and Advancetown Lake are situated in the Gold Coast Hinterland, near Mount Tamborine.
We walked along the dam wall, which was made higher a few years ago. We saw some bird life and the foot hills of the Great Dividing Range.
We stopped in at the cafe and had a very nice lunch before we walked down to the water's edge.
It was relaxing sitting on the bench and admiring the view
Even Bill enjoyed the little walk.
