Got one!



Actually it turned out to be a lump of sea weed, but they were having fun.

Said the spider to the fly....


Not much of a photograph, but I was trying out a new (non-macro) lens on this golden orb spider.  She's not specially large as these things grow, with a body not much longer than an inch and a bit.  Next time I'll use a flash and see if we can see her eyes!

I see rescue boards!


After a couple of tragic accidents in competitions, Surf Lifesavers wear fluorescent vests when competing and training now.

I suspect it would be difficult for anyone to sneak away from training early though.

Nippers



After the crowds have gone, we'll still have the Nippers (junior lifesavers) to keep us entertained as they thrash about in their fluorescent surf gear.

A shadow of his self


So there I was standing under the clearest of skies in the brightest of sunshines, trying to see if I'd captured the shot when I must have accidentally fired the shutter.

Make of it what you will.

You'd never guess


The casual visitor would be hard pressed to work out what was going on here.

Today is Australia Day, a national holiday celebrating many things, but historically the landing of the first settlement fleet in 1788. Not everyone stays home in a darkened room on this day, some of the occupants of this picnic shelter for instance had camped overnight to ensure the pick of the spots was theirs.

By seven in the morning they had lounge chairs, tables, tents, marquees, a massage area (for the girls)  and enough flags decorating their picnic to sink a fleet.   They were waiting on the arrival of a twenty metre water slide and a few more car loads of people, food and refreshment when we left them.

By nine, at the rate others were arriving to set up their own little parties, there will be standing room only in the park!

The surf will still be there in the morning.
