Wandering the Wetlands


After our recent mis-adventure in the Redlands Shire, where we narrowly missed a hefty fine for taking our beloved fur child for a walk during the wrong hours, we decided to visit somewhere a little more "Dog Friendly".  Having ridden today's trail on his bike some time ago, Matt knew that we were off to somewhere our little girl could wander happily, without the risk of getting into strife.  The location:  the very lovely Boondal Wetlands walk.


It's hard to believe that, only a short distance from the busy Brisbane traffic, this idyllic walk waits.  The sounds of the city are completely blocked out by the dense growth that surrounds the Wetlands.

Mother Nature turned on quite a spectacular show today, with the sun shining gloriously.  It was so warm, in fact, that we decided to walk only a little over 1km of the 8.4km Bikeway Walk at Boondal.

I'm so happy that I decided to take my camera with me today.  So many beautiful macro shots were waiting for me.  If you looked with the right perspective you could almost believe you were in an English Forest, surrounded by greenery and delicate blossoms.  The purple blossoms of the undergrowth even resembled Bluebells if you looked the right way.  Ah, the memories!



 

On our way out of the Wetlands we stopped by the lovely folks from Tricycle Coffee, for hot chocolate and Coffee.  This lovely couple makes a divine beverage... and even posed for a photo for me to put up on the blog.   Be sure to check out their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TricycleCoffee/

They make an amazing coffee.  We give them a 5 out of 5!

After we finished at the Wetlands we headed off to the nearby Nudgee Beach, where they have an off leash area for dogs.  Our girl was more interested in the larger-than-normal Dog Park, where we happily played until it was time to head home.

All in all, a great day and experience in the Boondal area.  We will definitely be back!
