Brisbane lies on the Brisbane River a little inland from Moreton Bay where the river empties into the sea and Wynnum is what we call a Bayside Suburb.
And because it is on the Bay it is soooo much cooler.
So while I sat in the hairdresser and had the works Tony did a bit of a photo gathering tour for you.
Because it is the Bay, the beaches are not good or almost non existant except at low tide and NO-ONE ever swims there.(shallow, muddy, YUK !)
Instead there is a large tidal wading pool for the littlies.
The foreshore is lined with parks and trees and a walking/ cycling track and the whole area is very popular for picnics.
There are also lots of cafes and outdoor eating places.
In short a nice place to go to cool off with lovely sea breezes without going for a swim.
BUT if you are into boats this is the place for you.
There's a fantastic marina to safely moor your boat
and many people enjoy the cool relaxed lifestyle of the Bay.
So that was our day.
The house was hot and stuffy when we got home after the cooler breezes of Wynnum and a thunder storm built up in the west then fizzled out before it got here so no relief from the heat today but the possibility of a storm again tomorrow and some relief for the 35+ C temperatures soon.
