Manly, Queensland

Manly Harbour from Norfolk Point causeway

My husband let me know that the house was making him feel claustrophobic. I agreed with him, having only accomplished one ‘explore Queensland’ outing in the car since moving to Brisbane last year. We settled on making an 11km journey east, to Manly.

Don’t get me wrong, we like living in a modern house with a private courtyard. What we find challenging is that there is no view, other than looking at the walls of the neighbouring property. Also, most of the outside area is covered by a roof. Great for shade, not so great for creating a feeling of openness.

We have accomplished a lot in the last three months as noted in my previous post, Avoidance. This has taken its toll. Believing that we should be constantly busy at home winds one up so.

Masts, Manly Harbour from Sea Vibes kitchen and bar

After a short spell at Norfolk Point, we completely relaxed while sitting outside Sea Vibes kitchen and bar. Lightly gazing at the masts in the Harbour and feeling a breeze that took the heat out of a 30oC day.

  1. Great vivid colors. I am self isolating, so I finally have time to go back into my saved emails and enjoy them. It’s turning out to be a blessing that I stored such treasure for such a challenging time. I hope you and your husband are well and safe from all the trials and tribulations of the last year. You are a bright spot for me.

    • Hello Eileen, I was thrilled to read your message. Thank you for your kind words. We are awaiting the instruction to work from home. My husband will be driving me to work from tomorrow so that I don’t have to catch public transport. Stay safe and take care.
