Roof lines 1770 Agnes Water
We have been in a holiday house this week. This view is to the headland at 1770, looking out of the bedroom window down onto the roof line of the outside deck area which adjoins the lounge, etc.

It was here at Seventeen Seventy that Cook made his second landing on Australian soil (his first had been at Botany Bay) and it was here that the first European set foot on Queensland soil. Town of Seventeen Seventy was appropriately named for Cook’s landing (24th May) 1770 becoming the birthplace of Queensland. This historic occasion is commemorated by the Captain Cook Memorial at nearby Round Hill Head.

Today this town is a small seaside resort which is noted for its pleasant beaches and good fishing.

Nice view and fine windows, I like the blinds on the left and right side.
Unfortunately one of the corners of the window frame is missing.

How cool to have windows in the corner of a room to let the light flood in like that. A pretty decent view too.
