    February 12, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    After a hot steamy night at the Gold Coast it was an early start to head to the airport to begin the first leg of our adventure. Ann and Patrick dropped us off and in we went to board our Scoot flight to Singapore. As flights go it was very comfortable and seemingly quick.
    We booked in to our accommodation, hotel Destination in Beach road. Had a bit of a relax then headed out to Chinatown for a look and some dinner. It's nearly Chinese New Year so there were many decorations around. We had some lovely dumplings, fried rice and noodles.
    Even though we were tired, we pushed on and went to Gardens by the Bay for the light show. Such an amazing place and so many people out and about on quite a pleasant evening. Fatigue got the better of us, so we headed back to the hotel for a refreshing shower and a nice sleep.

    Jindalee, Australia

    January 27, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    On a very hot Australia day weekend we decided to take the boat for a trip down the Brisbane river. We launched the boat at Jindalee boat ramp, this is a very good facility. There is plenty of space for boat rigging and parking. There is a nice park as well with bbq and covered tables for picnics and toilet facilities. The launch was easy and once I parked the car and trailer we headed off down the river heading into the city.
    It's very different moving through the city on the river. The river meanders through the suburbs and it's a little disorientating to know where you are. Along the river the houses are magnificent and huge you would never see them like that from the streets.
    We moved past places like golf courses, Lone Pine sanctuary and the University of Queensland. That took us to the beginning of the city. As we approached the city we had to be more alert as there were the city ferries and rivercats to contend with. We went under all the bridges, pedestrian, train and auto. Past Southbank, Kangaroo Point cliffs, Eagle street pier and then under the Storey bridge. We continued past the suburbs all the way out to Bretts Wharf and past the P&O Pacific Dawn cruise ship.
    We headed back to meet up with Sue at West End boat ramp where we had some lunch under the shade of some Moreton Bay figs. We took Sue for a trip on the boat then dropped her back at West End.
    Back up the river to Jindalee boat ramp where we put the boat back on the trailer and that ended a lovely day in the boat on the Brisbane river.
