It's hard being on the water, huh
Tree climbing is fun for kids...
Yes it is and I remember when I used to do that.
Exotic looking trees!
Yes they are, and different to what we have further to the south.
Wow the tree is fantastic
Be nice to know how old it is actually.
Well--- Cenotaph sent me googling. It's good to learn new words even when you are... uh... mature. Enjoyed your pictures! But then I always do.
Never though many other wouldn't know what Cenotaph means :) but good on you for looking for yourself. Always good to find out something new, no matter what age.Thank you.
Strangler Fig in the last photo, I think. I note there are lots of newer apartment buildings.
Always changing things in most places here as we travel. New building going up, old ones being torn down.
Love that tree. And peaceful places are always welcome.
Was lovely and quiet there at that time of day, but I expect it's not always.
Wonderful photos as usual
Strangler figs? I love the way they look but they sound dangerous! The serene harbor is beautiful with the reflections of the boats in the water.
Common name or one of the common names Cynthia, don't think they will hurt you :) Was lucky with the reflections of the boats...at the right place and the right time.
Esos árboles son una maravilla. El lugar es un remanso de paz, para descansar. Besos
After a long walk along The Strand it is a nice place to sit on the grass and rest.
Sure is a jam packed marina. Isn't there a huge fishing businessin Townsville???Wonderful words on the cenotaph......most country towns have reallysuch well cared for memorials. A credit to the RSL, the councils and thetowns people.The Strangler Fig is really something - you can see why it got that name.Great report on Townsville, Margaret.Loved your reply on Mt. Wellington.CheersColin
Not many more boats could fit. Looked for the fishing industry and couldn't find much at all! Surprising.You are right about Cenotaphs being in country towns, they are always well kept and show much pride.That fig was a big one, but then most are up that way.Thanks :)
Great look around. Thank you for sharing your moments with us.
You are welcome.
That's a beautiful old tree..
It is and there are many more up that way.
Townsville is on my list of places to one day visit and I've just raised it to near the top of the list after your posts.
You won't be disappointed River.
I love the water in the first picture. Those trees in the last picture are amazing.
Lovely day it was that day for taking water photos, a small ripple was welcome.
Ah, what a beautiful tree. I used to climbing up in a trees, so good. Fantastic pictures Margaret.
Thank you Bill.
Nice photos Margaret. The one that caught my eye the most is the last one with the trees. I am not used to seeing growth like that.
Amazing those trees Andy.
Townsville played a very important role during the Second World War...and of course, Lavarack Barracks is a major Australia Army Base. And, not to forget the RAAF Base as well.
We stayed near the Barracks at a lovely caravan park.
It is pretty. I love the trees.
Lovely walking along there.
Here for my blue Aussie sunshine fix :)Have a great week!Wren x
Beautiful place... and the old trees are awesome, it would be nice to be a child again..
