Borumba Dam

Borumba Dam is the water storage for the Gympie area. It is west of the town of Imbil in the Mary Valley. We sat and ate our picnic lunch there the other day and enjoyed a perfect winter day. The lake is surrounded by hills and there was almost no wind so there were some beautiful reflections. The lake curves around behind the hills so the full length cannot be seen from the picnic area. The lake is also used for boating and fishing.

Thanks Texwisgirl. It was so still without any wind that winter clothes of jeans and t-shirt were too hot. I should have been in summer shorts and shirt!

Hi Nicole, it's a beautiful place and was so peaceful and quiet to sit and eat our picnic looking out over the water.

That's a beautiful spot and looks like the kind of winter I could handle! (And you don't have to go to Florida (so to speak) to get it.)

In the post below -- I have to say that your cuckoo is a beautiful bird even if it does have nasty habits. Our nest stealing birds (starlings) are not as interesting looking.

HI Sallie, Would you believe that after a few years in this lovely warm climate you actually get used to the heat then feel quite cold in winter!
