Bribie Skiff Fest – a photo essay
As the sun rose into a clear blue sky, and the residents of the peaceful hamlet of Bribie Island began to stir, a tricked out black Rav4 pulled into the park beside VMR. Its occupants started setting up camp, and were soon joined by a seemingly endless procession of cars and fourbys towing behind them a motley flotilla of weird looking craft.

Thanks to Treasurer Julie for the photos and majority of the words.
