OUR APRIL COACH TRIP

Posted in 'Resident Events, Village Events' on May 11, 2015
Proud Mary River Cruise 
 
April the 2nd, the day of our coach and bus trip, we woke, not to the patter of little feet, but to raindrops on our roofs! Not to be deterred, forty one residents boarded the coach confident it would be a good day; and it was!

A comfortable coach, a capable driver and we were away, heading in the direction of the city to board our cruise boat, the M.V. Neptune.

Settling down to the gentle roll of the boat, we were treated to a Devonshire Morning Tea and before we knew it we had cruised under three of our bridges, Story, Victoria and William Jolly. How our city has changed! It has come of age with magnificent houses lining the full extent of the river and the owners' toys, millionaire motor cruisers waiting for the nod to be underway for the Easter break.

For those of us who are Brisbanites, to see the old Evans Deakin shipyards at Kangaroo Point now home to luxurious units would have been beyond our comprehension. Then around Breakfast Creek where Newstead House nestled almost hidden among the massive trees in the garden.
 
Another bend of our Brisbane River showed Mowbray Park at East Brisbane, then Norman Park with the Canning Bridge over Norman Creek, now almost luminous after the sun had decided to appear.
 
To finish the day, lunch at Coorparoo R.S.L. where one resident was jubilant at her luck at the 'pokies' and another winning a tasty meat tray. We were rather concerned that we may be barred after such success but all was well.

Thank you Pamela for another most enjoyable day.
