We've been to the beach for a bit. Don't let anyone tell you there's no fun to be had on a winter beach. It was fabulous.
This beach was awash in giant kelp, only freshly shared with the shore. Tough as leather, heavy as wet rope.
A tiny plover, one of many on this deserted beach.
How could you not be moved by this awesomeness?
Playing with my camera, and the late-afternoon light.
The dog wanted to know why she couldn't swim.
Now we're in Townsville and these pics are from the newly-developed Jezzine park at the end of the wonderful Strand.
And finally, it was time to fly home. But not until after this glorious late afternoon walk.
