Spring in Brisbane is a brief affair. We were forecast a couple of cloudy, damp days, but instead this is what we got.
It's vacation time, so I piled the kids in the car and we headed down to the beach for a couple of hours expending youthful energy, or in my case, going into energy debt. There is a small island at this spot, only accessible at low tide. We have always said we wanted to walk there, and today we did.
We explored the tidal pools, filled with hermit crabs and tiny fish that we could only spot when they moved.
The kids squealed when a hermit crab decided to explore my toes.
I imagine that the cranes at the shipping port are actually giraffes, grazing on an African plain.
On the way home we stopped at a garden centre, admired the flowers, especially this prettily crumpled poppy, and stocked up on a few plants to add to the little frog haven I am creating.
Tired but happy, we all went home.
