We are now in Ipswich, a suburb of Brisbane for a week to take care of a small mixed, mostly silky terrier, dog. Her "mom" has gone to the beach on the Gold Coast for some R&R and we are here to learn about things nearer Brisbane.

We've already scouted out a mall or two and figured out places to go for a walk along the Bremer River. There is a shopping mall along one bank and a park with board walks along the opposite.

Although we are in town, it is quite here and there is a nice patio/garden in the back. The birds are the usual (for southeastern Queensland) suspects, but there are parks galore here, just as in Toowoomba. We will explore and report.

There is also a rail museum in town we intend to examine. Film at 11.
