Wow, it’s early March and here I am making my first post for the year. Last year saw a few things take my attention away from blogging, which is annoying, because when I write, I am relaxed. Some of those issues continue on, hence my not being back here in some months. But I have decided that I must allocate time for myself, so I hope to become more regular again.
When there was some spare time, I most often found myself, with a friend and her dog, at beachside locations. There are many to choose from in my area in the south-east of the state (Queensland, Australia). My friends on Facebook would certainly support me in that regard, with numerous shots from the locations.
One of my favourite spots is on a small island off the coast — Bribie Island. It’s connected by bridge to the Aussie mainland and is a popular day trip location for people in Brisbane (the state’s capital) and surrounds. This particular spot is at Banksia Beach, on the protected side of the island. The waters are clear and it’s a safe place to swim. The photo below was taken from my camping chair. In the distance are the Glasshouse Mountains, so tiny here, but when you drive past them on the motorway, they are much more imposing. I had the pleasure of living on Bribie Island a few years ago, so I know the good spots not usually overrun by tourists. 🙂
So this is where I have been a lot of late. Next post (how’s that for showing a positive outlook) I’ll showcase some of the other locations we have been relaxing at.
