Moffs on the Rocks


 The Rocks and Moffat Beach - just made for fossicking on - carefully!

Tiring


I never tire of poking around on the beach and the rocks below the headland.  I wonder if you get tired of the picture of that same old tree!

For good measure.


Because the next couple of days feature similar photographs, I thought I'd better start with the view north.

Coastal Banksia


I have been particularly unsuccessful in trying to capture one of these things in flower of late, but this one is about to burst out - perhaps I shall remember where it was in a day or two and revisit!

Coming and going.


A new flower spike about to appear while an old one, laden with seed pods is about to let them loose.

I never seem to get to flowers in this late stage with advanced alopecia, one last clump of its hair about to fall off, I don't know why - they must be in equal abundance to the spent pods.

Banksia men


Banksia pods seem to hang on the trees for ever.  I don't know if they ever fall or rot off, but under their little hard shell is a layer of the softest velvet, and I can't find a reason for it.

Perhaps its just one of life's mysteries.

Cutting down the noise with glitter.


When the bridge touches down on the south bank, it does so beside some residential buildings.

The glass panels are there to deflect the road noise apparently, and perhaps to let the drivers have a sneak peek into someone's bathroom.   OK I'm only kidding about the bathroom, but the whole thing has a certain melancholy to it in a design, as though someone was trying really hard to do something wonderful, but they weren't hired until after the "important" decisions (like getting those economical bridge beams from a catalogue) were out of the way.    I can almost hear the slashing of the budget each time some grand new idea was tabled.

There is an expression that probably sums up the design brief I think ;
"You can't polish a turd, so how about we roll it in a bit of glitter."

Still, it's a lot better than it might have been!

Maroochydore.
