22nd November 2018 – 28th November 2018
I had a couple of medical appointments in Brisbane. We thought we would take the van down and camp at the Lawnton Showgrounds. However they were expecting a big group and couldn’t be certain they could accommodate us. After considering a few different options, we decided on the Redcliffe Showgrounds. This was a very good choice. We were parked in a quiet spot and it is not far to anywhere. On the first day I walked to the Redcliffe Esplanade, past the famous Redcliffe Jetty. This is the third Jetty built at this location, constructed in 1995.
One morning I went for a drive on the Redcliffe Peninsula. First stop was at the Woody Point Jetty. It brought back memories from my first visit here – an early morning Photography Session with a professional photographer.
Close by is the Gayundah Wreck – although this makes it sound as if the ship grounded accidentally. In reality the stripped hull was purchased and beached as a breakwater for Woody Point in 1958.
I walked a bit along the foreshore, practicing my drone flying skills.
