At the end of the year our tennis group have a day out together on public transport so that we can all be together and chat on the way and have a drink with lunch. This year we met at South Bank and had coffee. After coffee we walked to the ferry station and caught a City Cat to North Shore about an hours ride on the boat towards the mouth of the Brisbane River. I have a new phone and all the photos were taken with it. Still learning everything it can do.
Walking to the ferry station. Past players are also invited to come.
We waited here for a few minutes. It was a dull day and threatening to rain our usual summer rains.
Here comes the City Cat
Some of the Cats are painted with Brisbane sport's team colours. This one is the Brisbane Bullets Basketball Team.
After we leave the South Bank Parklands we go across to the CBD. (Down Town)
There are many bridges across the river connecting northern and southern suburbs. This one is our icon, the Story Bridge.
We have left the city and heading for the North Shore, stopping on the way at various suburbs. We spent a relaxing hour on the boat together.
We sat outside the restaurant in the shade but it was quite humid but it didn't rain.
After a lovely day and lunch and plenty of chatter it was time to make our way home by boat, bus and car. We passed the many riverside restaurants in the city. It is great not to be overly worried about the virus as we have eliminated it from the community. We do have some cases in quarantine hotels where returning Australians from overseas must stay for two weeks.
Under some of the many bridges in the River City.
This is one of the pedestrian bridges going from the South Bank Parklands to the QUT University.
