    Yep - of course the blueness of water is actually caused by reflection from the sky, so you really only just need to be standing in the right place with a blue sky above you. You'll notice that rivers never look blue on cloudy days.

    Thanks Ana :)

    Bah, this water is tidal and thus higher in salt content than drinking water, who knows what else is in it by the time it gets this far down the river anyway.

    That's true, well at least of this far down the river anyway. After all, nearly everyone in Brisbane drinks water that came from the Brisbane River at some stage...
  • ferrous said:
    - true, but i was thinking more of just bending down & drinking straight from the river. *shudder*

    Yeah, it's not as bad as Ankh Morpork standards, but I'd not be drinking out of it (or swimming in it).

    You don't read Pratchett do you ? (you should, it's good British humour wrapped up in some alternative universe fantasy).
