Facilities


We are often quite justly critical of facilities provided by our local authority and state government, but I don't think anyone can complain about an all-weather boat ramp equipped with pontoon and fish cleaning tables complete with running water.

Trailers


It's a sure sign that the fish are biting when there are this many trailers still in the boat ramp park mid-morining on a working day.

Protection, Rubber, Call them what you will.


Old car tyres do a sterling job of keeping boats off the concrete, even if they do put black marks on white hulls.

Marinas


While wandering round the waterfront, it would be remiss not to add a photo of the pleasure boat fleet.  This one at the Mooloolaba Yacht Club Marina.   There is a small industry built around servicing pleasure boats as this is a rare safe port of call for those migrating to the experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef to our north.

Wharves


When the fleet come in, that's where they unload their catch, right at the door of the fish market.

Neat!

Trawlers


We have a small but quite active fishing fleet based in Mooloolaba.   These are prawn trawlers mostly fishing relatively close to shore, already in bed after a what was no doubt a long night.

The tuna fleet are out at the moment, far from shore.

At rest



I am such a lazy cynical photographer.  On days like today when the colour is all washed out and the subject matter fills he frame with a lifeless grey, I hit a button at random until I find a mix I like.

In this case it was called "Bleach Bypass".

Golden Bleach...err Beach.
