Main Beach - Gold Coast Queensland
We went for a long walk this morning on this beautiful winters day.
The sun was warm , the sky stunning & the water crisp & sparkling.
He is only three but we often catch him when we are at the beach , pondering while looking out to sea.
He seems to have some connection to it , even when he was crawling in nappies he would crawl straight out into the water .
Beach Fisherman, what a way to spend the morning
Untouched ripples in the sand
We brought our beach football with us ( daddy teaching how to make a mound kick off.)
It was the best idea bringing the ball, usually we wouldnt get very far without complaining of being tired. When you kick a ball up the beach & see who gets there first , its amazing how they dont notice the distance.
"Look mum , pink & purple jellyfish" , my daughter insisted on taking a photo. I havent seen this colour before myself.
The beaches received a battering last summer , I was surprised at the erosion. This used to be a walkway to the beach , now it is a sudden drop to the beach. We had to find a safer place for them to climb , fortunately not far along some sand seems to have been brought in (of course, right behind here is the Sheraton Mirage )
There he goes , he had to climb it !
Very clever , he used a plant root to pull himself up the last bit.
" Look mum I did it , can I jump down ?" many times they climbed up & jumped down.
While mummy stood at the top in the shade watching , Daddy was down the bottom in case of any misshapes.
There were a lot of boats at on horizon today , how lovely that would be also.
No the fisherman wasnt washed away , when we were walking back I loved the look of the rod standing there by itself , now I can look at this picture & imagine myself standing there.
My daughter called me over to see what she had written , caps our thoughts off perfectly.
I am dedicating this weeks water pictures to Sharon from My French Country Home. A few weeks ago she invited bloggers to show water images from around there home. At the time I was going to do this , but was unable to join in. She also left a comment today saying she felt like being near the water. I have a little collection after this week of different places we have been. I know this is a long post , but we had such a lovely morning I wanted to share.
