Got off my arse this morning and went walkies. The sun was on the warm side but the breeze was fresh out on the water and there is no better way to see Brisbane Water than from the ferry.
Wandered along the other half of the Illoura Reserve and very nice it was too. (Map)
Mary-Lou and Four Winds moored off Illoura Reserve. That's Mary-Lou on the left in the blue & white.
Hardys may be the boatiest bay in Brisbane Water but have a gander at the background in this photo. You can't hardly see the houses for boats.
Davistown (foreground) and Empire Bay (background).
Mary-Lou's and Four Winds's backsides. Just looking at wooden boats gives a person a restful feeling.
In the background is Sorrento Road Empire Bay.
Can't afford a whole wooden boat? Want something with wood but with grunt? Here's yer solution.
Her name's Milly. I like her double wooden doors down into the cabin. Very gambling saloon.
MV Rustbucket moored off Amy Street. Clearly she's had a hard life and it's not over yet. She's for sale.
Quiet spot for a bit of fishing and dreaming.
That's the old orphanage across the water there. St Joseph's and the Holy Cross Church.
All these photos were taken from Illoura Reserve. That green line on the map is it. Goes from Restella Avenue, just down from Central Wharf, to round past the Davo.
The Davo is the Davistown RSL and is a popular daytrip if you want a decent feed and a gargle sandwiched between to rides on the water.
That cross on the right edge is Holy Cross and St Joseph's.
