Brisbane City Sketchers at the Manly Boat harbour

Wynnum Manly has managed to maintain its rich history as one of the oldest areas of Brisbane. The Bayside suburbs offer an abundance of heritage buildings, places and landmarks that tell a story from indigenous occupation to European settlement, the threat of invasion and the development of a seaside community.
The jewel in the crown of Wynnum-Manly is the Manly Boat Harbour. This impressive harbour is the largest small-craft harbour in Queensland and is a safe haven for hundreds of crafts. It was established in 1958 and in 1964 the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron moved its clubhouse to the harbour. The stone breakwaters at the harbour entrance provide protection and a handy place to fish.
This is a favourite place4 of mine to visit and sketch and paint, as it is only a 15 minute drive from my house.

 It was a great adventure, the three of us talking our heads off about art for well over an hour.
