There are at least 4 ways my comment can be taken (passing by on a visit to Fraser Island, visiting someone who works there, visiting someone who was cooling their heels in there or been taken there herself :eek: ). Knowing @JessicaTam for some years now, I'd offer up the first option as the most likely. But she left the door ajar, so I thought I'd be cheeky and rattle it :D

Meanwhile back on topic, a dreary day or constant rain in Brisbane (been that way in the northern suburbs on and off since ~10pm last night). Day spent in the office with my faithful assistant (but she does no work):

I was sure that it wasn't Tallinn by the shape, and like you said Tallinn is south rather than east. A quick google look confirms what city I though they might show - St Petersburg. The first couple of photos seem to be of Kotlin Island - Kronstadt - famous for the "Kronstadt Rebellion" in 1921.

The Stonewall uprising was a series of violent demonstrations by members of the LGBTQ+ community against police who had raided the Stonewall Inn – one of the few LGBTQ+-friendly bars in the city at the time – in Manhattan, New York City in June 1969. The uprising proved to be a monumental catalyst for the gay liberation movement, and is widely considered to be one of the most important events in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the USA and around the world.
New York City is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising this year by illuminating the city skyline in rainbow throughout the month of June. Iconic buildings like One World Trade Centre, the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and more will feature breathtaking LGBTQ+-inspired projections and lights until the end of the month.

Tallinn?? If so, that's on my bucket list after @NM all those years ago did a TR on visiting there.
Ehh, it's OK. If you do get the chance head down to Parnu too; that's a pretty cool little beach town.

This is the best I can do for a sunset today...... another day in paradise..... ;)

Hiding behind the building was a bright orange blurry sun, just like you're used to in Asia. By the time I got around it was too hidden. Still in Gurgaon, India.
