One of those days!


Have you ever had one of those days when even though you had a whole list of things to do, you couldn't get motivated?

That was today.  I tried sitting on the beach till the feeling passed, but it never did.

View from the Bank


The back streets of Mooloolaba have a sort of sub-tropical, comfortable feel, despite the wall of concrete between them and the water's edge.

Spring

Spring is a strange time in our part of the world.   It brings with it moderate temperatures (approaching thirty degrees C), usually little rain, cloudless skies, and a sort of listlessness that promises little.    Colours become muted, and lost in the afternoon haze, the sky annoyingly subdued.

Perhaps I am being annoyingly ungrateful!

Glasshouse Mountains (the village!).

Iceland

It's funny how when one travels one is constantly reminded of places near home.  Here though we are home and reminded of our travels.

This stranded jelly fish for instance, looks so much like a piece of glacier ice that for a moment we were taken back in time to another place!

Twilight


I've been trying to identify some of the things that perhaps we take for granted, or simply just don't notice when we live here.    One of them is twilight, or actually a complete lack of it.

The shadows grow long and soft across the beach, the sand changes colour from gold to brown, and then someone throws a switch somewhere and it gets dark.

Cure for jetlag
Dicky Beach



There is something quite soothing about dipping one's jetlagged toes in the rockpools near home, the sky impossibly clear and the water temperature warmer than the air temperature in the places we have just left.

No doubt about it, we're home for summer!

Stumers Creek


Where creek meets ocean, or doesn't as the case may be.

On a higher tide the two will be reunited.
