Sandgate run, bye bye sun.

Our Brisbane holiday has reached its last full day.

We spent the morning and lunch time at Bribie Island, but the wind was too strong to attempt a picnic lunch on the beach as planned, so we sheltered in a park instead, and were hassled by eight white ibises for food scraps.

Mid afternoon I ran 12k from the top of Shorncliffe along the coast cycle path through Sandgate and Brighton to the Houghton Highway Bridge and back, while Jenny walked to the end of the Sandgate Pier and a couple of grumpy old fishermen, before following me along as far as a quaint old Baptist church by the sea.

"Perfect the next"? They must have been kidding. Cool and cloudy and windy today! With all the smoke around, a glorious sunset, but!

  6. It started raining lightly at 5:30pm last night just as we crossed into the ACT from NSW.

    It is raining more heavily today.

    Hurray for new fireplaces.
