Waterworld


Living in the sub-tropics we expect to have afternoon summer storms, and we've been getting those over the weekend. The mornings start off mostly clear and sunny and as the day progresses, the heat and humidity builds up to a crescendo, the clouds billow and swell, becoming darker until the rain falls in a torrent. With the wet in mind, I will take you to Boondall Wetlands, Brisbane's largest remaining wetlands, just 15kms from the city centre. They sit on the edge of Moreton Bay and cover an area of over 1000 hectares.

I can tell you Ann that the humidity was over 80% and the mozzies were hungry this day.

After the added rain recently, the wetlands are looking very lush and green. It's only small, but still a nice walk and there is always something new to see.

It's a nice walking area, and just 10 mins drive from home...we are very lucky to have these places so close to the city.
