Last Friday we visited Currumbin Beach on the famous Gold Coast. It’s a magnificent beach with wonderful rocks, and spectacular views. We took photos from Elephant Rock next to the Surf club, and also down near the other rocks. The weather was perfect, with a slight breeze, not too hot or overcast. Taz even made a quick drip castle as the sand was perfect for the job…took us back to the kids childhood…drip castles were a favourite beach occupation. Currumbin isn’t too crowded and very pleasant to visit and the views from the surf club are amazing. It’s a great treat to walk on a beach again that has proper white sand and put the feet into the surf edge….refreshing for body and mind. My eyes love the distance of an ocean view, and as we do so much close up viewing on devices, it’s a healthy thing to look out to great distances occasionally (well, as much as possible). Currumbin Beach and the surrounding beaches have just been listed as some of the best surf beaches in the world and have some kind of special listing as a result….a wonderful place to play and enjoy.
Loved our brief holiday to the Northern Rivers, NSW…took some beautiful snaps…If you get a chance to go there you’ll love its scenic beauty. Rainforests, national parks, the best beaches, markets, villages and of course Byron Bay are the outstanding features of the area. There’s lots to do and see. It’s definitely a wonderful place for Shinrin-yoku, Japanese for “forest bathing”, and you’ll also catch some good waves off the beaches. Mt Warning (Wollumbin) is the main mountain attraction in the area, and is the remnant plug of a massive volcano that exploded millennia ago leaving a huge caldera up into Queensland and as far south as Ballina.
Our favourite things are walking to Protestors and Minyon Falls, and visiting the Crystal Castle near Mullumbimby.
Am excited about using some of these pics as a basis for future artworks. Some of our best pics are here for you in a slideshow.
