The past week has been super busy

Morning Tea with a friend

I have coffee with a friend every couple of weeks, that was before home schooling, now after homeschooling we are able to meet again.  She has recently moved house and is not native to Brisbane so I thought it would be a good idea to show her some of my favourite places that are near her new home.  We started last week with fish and chips at Morgan's at Scarborough.  You can sit on the harbour and watch the boats as they bring their catch in.

And what a catch!  Everything is so fresh.

This week we went to Sandgate and bought a coffee from the Fish and Chip shop there, then, sat in the park by the water.  This is another favourite spot of mine.

The park in on the inlet and old Moreton Bay Fig trees offer shade.

They are just beautiful to sit under.

All the seats were full and other people had brought their own chairs. (This is mid week, it's not so peaceful on the weekend.)   People chatting, playing Scrabble and Cards with a soft breeze blowing to keep us cool.

We were amused by the sea birds that were on the sand flats.  As the tide rose they didn't move but stood in the water catching fish that came in on the tide.

I was sure they would move but they stayed put until they had to swim.  There were no screaming gulls in the park they had all fed well on fresh fish and sat around quite content.

As an adult I learnt to paddle at the club on the inlet.

And as this is an family friendly place you can see old boats that have been lovingly looked after still in use.

Nothing really outstanding, but, oh so special.

Sometimes the simplest things are the best.


Absolutely delightful.
