Yesterday we sailed into Brisbane & I was up on deck at 5am to get a new perspective of our lovely city which turned on a perfect day for our visitors. Sunrise was beautiful:
I was so excited to see the family at Portside & to help Elliot celebrate his birthday.
Our new friends on the MS Sirena all seemed to go to Lone Pine & have their photos taken with a koala & they loved the friendly easy going way of the Queenslanders they met.
It’s easy to see why the big ships have to dock at the industrial area – there didn’t seem to be a great deal of spare space when we went under the Gateway Bridge. The Sirena is quite small with only 680 passengers & 400 crew.
It was rough last night again as we sailed north to Caloundra before heading South for Sydney. We will have to be up early tomorrow so that we can experience sailing in through the Heads. Very excited about that!
