Mostly, water's good fun.

Hello there, it's the three of us Eddie, Archie and Cubbie. Well we've been just about stir crazy these last few weeks, we've not been able to get out and have a bit of a run. However today the humans took us all for a bit of an adventure, and boy oh boy, did we need it. This rain might be o.k. for ducks, but it's no good for
Fox Terriers, we like to be out and about, chasing lizards, and investigating everything we see. But most of all we love to be racing through puddles, getting wet and filthy and then falling asleep because we're so tired.

The river rushes on.

Looking back towards the CBD, it looks a picture perfect day, and if it wasn't for the flooding river, it would be. The speed of the filthy muddy deluge was estimated at around 30 kph, boats ripped from their moorings, pontoons, shipping container, and family belongings were all seen rushing on their way out of the mouth of the Brisbane River and into Moreton Bay. Stay strong and brave beautiful Brisbane. Leave a comment, tell us how you've managed in this crisis. you can see more of margi's images by visiting her web site

The William Jolly Bridge.

Here, peeping through the trees along the top of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, you can see the William Jolly Bridge. One of the many busy links across the Brisbane River to the beautiful city of Brisbane. The muddy flood waters are swirling around the pylons, trapping debris carried along by the current and creating whirlpools.

Kangaroo Point. Brisbane

Looking down to the park and recreation area at the base of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs late yesterday afternoon, this was the sight that greeted ones eyes. To the right is a picnic table, but everything, paths, lawns, safety railings etc., all completely covered with the swirling, filthy, stinking, flood water. Chin up Beautiful Brisbane.

Someones Dreams.

This is just one of the many boats which were washed down the Brisbane River this week. I can imagine the proud owners of this lovely little boat, sitting there on their pontoon, planning their next fishing adventure, or trip across to the islands for the day. It's heartbreaking, such devastation and destruction, along with loss of precious lives. Mother Nature can be such a force to be reconned with.
