365 Grateful – Day 120

This photograph is taken from across the road from where my children went to primary school in Manly.  Their primary school is fortunate to have amazing views!  So too do the nearby residents! That is Manly harbour there that you can see at the bottom of the hill.  […]

365 Grateful – Day 115

Today I needed some time out of the house and out in the great outdoors and nature.  I bundled just myself, my handbag, and my camera into the car and I set off on my much-needed solitary outing.   I’d been all over the place – Manly, Lota, Wynnum […]

Wynnum Mangrove Boardwalk

Today I’m letting out my inner environmental science geek and taking you with me on a walk along the Wynnum Mangrove Boardwalk which is on Moreton Bay and is part of the Moreton Bay Marine Park.  I won’t rattle on too much, we’ll mostly just walk and enjoy […]
