When the tour information mentioned a shuttle into town, at first I didn’t pay any attention. Then when I read the details I decided that it might be a good idea. Anytime when the distance is mentioned as “about 50 minutes” one has to assume that town is beyond an easy hike.
As we docked this morning – no question. We are at the commercial port. Other than the fact that it is obviously along the ocean – it is out in the middle of freaking nowhere. Seriously nowhere -you can’t even see the city from here and Brisbane is not exactly small. Going to be glad for the MP3 player on the way to town.
Headed early into town, wandered. Saw the Maritime Museum, the Botanical Gardens, rode the Hop-on-off Ferry and walked a lot. Oh, yes – Brisbane has art,
a park (or several),
the large wheel and assorted interesting architectural buildings in an effort to preserve the area’s history.
But, let us take a look at reality from the point of view of someone living off the seas – land is that inconvenient variably sized and shaped pile of dirt and rocks obstructing the free flow of the ocean.
Proving the point –
I am now back at the port and trying to catch up everything before we head out
