Last week (3/28) we celebrated the visit of Seattle friends Cate and Mia by taking train, ferry and bus to visit North Stradbroke Island, closely offshore in Brisbane Harbor. The island, which is mostly sandy beach, is rooted on a few rocky sections including an intensely beautiful eroded chasm termed "The Gorge".
