It's beaut Sue isn't it when we get to see places like this. I have never heard of this place until Stephen shared it with us and it looks so lovely - although not a place I personally would chose to live in - too much like bush fire country for my liking.

I did live for a while at Woody Point on the Redcliffe Peninsula - see there's that 'removed' thing again, sort of :roll:

I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.

Speaking of bush fires, the whole town was razed to the ground on Black Friday in 1939 - though amazingly, only one person died. None of the buildings are any earlier than the 1940s.

Beautiful area Stephen I love the old buildings

I used to stop when I saw one on the road as a supermarket supervisor and sometimes just sat and had lunch and dreamed of times gone by.


Cheers

Sweet little bridge with matching seat, too, eh? Another good spot to sit and dream of times gone by.
