The CityCat!

This morning, while we were reading the Sunday paper and eating muesli, a flotilla of boats came round the bend of the river - every single CityCat Ferry, traveling in formation, back on the river for the first time since the flood.
Fifteen catamarans, and eight little tubs, with a small one bringing up the rear  - the caboose always comes last.
It was a ceremonial, processional, triumphant, victorious march up the Brisbane River.

We hung off our balcony and waved and all along the river, windows and doors opened and people shouted and hollered and hugged each other.  The river is open again. The ferries are BACK!
