#180-365 March to the Beat of a Different Drum
Recently, some of people involved in this challenge have felt the necessity to challenge, my description of Winter in Paradise. As you know recently I have been suffering the effects of the Dreaded Sickness Mongo, but being generous I decided to share it with Sally, who I must admit did not seem all that please at my present. Well yesterday she came to the end of her tether and screamed at me "Get Me out of this house" so again to demonstrate my generosity I took her Overseas, to Bribie Island to be exact.
Although this is just over an hour away and involves no more than driving across the bridge that spans Pumicestone Passage, it is technically overseas as I see it, while there Sally suggested I take a few shots to show you people basking in the swelter of a Northern Summer, that some of us Here Down Under, are battling the fridgid conditions and are just soldiering on until we are blessed with a bit of Summer Fun Too. The first shot is on Bribies Eastern coast in an area that the Locals call "Surfside" although the Moreton Bay Islands prevent anything that would attract Mark Occhilupo or Kelly Slatter, it is better than Redcliffe Surf. The second shot shows some keen fisherfolk and others enjoying the waters of Pumicestone Passage. We see this as Winter hardship but then I guess we just march to the beat of a Different Drum - Have A Nice Day Y'All!
