We have friends who have created a delightful Bed and Breakfast in the wooded area at the rear of their house. It looks out across the expanse of Fegan's Bay, which is part of Brisbane Water (nothing to do with Brisbane except that it was named after the same man.) They found a statue of Minerva in the garden when they bought the property, hence the name.
What a charming spot to come,
Far away from the city's hum!
Minerva's Garden is the place
To just relax and lose all trace
Of worldy care and stress and strain,
And push and pull and greed and gain.
A Bed and Breakfast destination
Designed for pure felicitation.
Wake to the sound of birds around you!
Maybe a cockatoo has found you!
Gaze out upon a brand new day
With all the delights of Fegan's Bay.
Wander down and what do you know!
Breakfast on the patio!
So much old-world charm is there;
Rock awhile in the rocking chair.
Now's the time you must depart.
But 'Minerva' will linger in your heart.
