And this little piggy went to market...

Queenslanders aren't very tough when the weather is cool. So we have been hiding inside, under blankets with the heater on for a month.On Sunday, our sun came out and the wind was gone. To take advantage of this glorious day. We decided to go to the Redcliffe Markets by boat. 

The water was so still
Not a cloud in the sky
 We were searching for dolphins. They were obviously enjoying the weather elsewhere.
back to the Marina
 and finished off with an afternoon bike ride.



PS: I am joining up for Wordless Wednesday at My Little Drummer Boys

  2. Having grown up in Melbourne with "four seasons in one day", the fact that my life shuts down in cold and rain frustrates me! I'm trying to make a conscious effort to get out, in spite of the rain and cold!

    1. We never have to worry about parking. We were the only boat looking for a jetty parking space. Rx
