notes from here and there


Weemusic in Bulimba

An Australian pelican takes flight.
Today we took the ferry across the river from Teneriffe to Bulimba for a music class. It's acutally closer for us to go across the river than to get to other parts of New Farm, especially on foot. I thought it would be fun to have a Friday outing, taking the ferry and walk up Oxford Street. The music class was great. Sophia is learning notes and playing different instruments. We are not a musical family, but maybe Sophia will take after Ouma and surprise us all!
Often waiting for the ferry takes longer than the actual time it takes the ferry to get across the river. About a 2 minute ride!
Ferry from Teneriffe to Bulimba
Bulimba reminds me of The Heights. Lovely trees, a big park, lots of families and then there is Oxford Street, a street lined with shops, cafes, bakeries and a very cool vintage movie theater. The first time we ventured across the ferry to Bulimba, it immediately felt familiar. If we can figure out how to get to Clayfield College from Bulimba, don't be surprised if our address changes to the other side of the river. Of course there is the other option of sending Sophia to the Bulimba state school. So is it the simple life in Bulimba and walk to a state school, or do we drive all over the place in order to attend private school? Ugh. Any thoughts?
88 Maquarie Street is the red brick building behind the riverfront houses.

I don't have photoshop at the moment so I can't draw on my pictures or else I would. Time for dinner so gotta run along now. Queensland's version of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is this weekend and next will be posting on Ekka soon. The difference? Ekka is livestock shows and fashion shows, all in one. Afterall, livestock is livestock, mate.
