The Tropics



Technically we are in the sub-tropics here, and coconut palms are a rare sight indeed, except on the little patch of beach near the caravan park at Mooloolaba, where four survive the ravages of the tides.   They look as though they have been naturally sprouted, but I have my doubts.  For a  start they'd have had to have found their way south against the prevailing winds and currents.

Anything is possible I suppose, and they do give a quite tropical feel to the place when one knows where to find them!

If you like watching water, you can find links to many more wet photos at WateryWednesday!

That water is quite churning, Peter, and the cloud cover quite extensive. The weather down here is all over the place at the moment with many days quite hot but with just a grey sky. Not a usual summer.

I can feel the wind, the salt sting on my skin, the sand beneath my feet...

Dare I say it, but it almost looks like a monsoonal change is on the way.

The water looks so fresh and inviting, even though a little restless! Lovely photo!

It certainly looks like a holiday postcard.

You can get to hate people you know.... from a wet and windy Menton.

This is a stunning photo. I remember with pleasure the coconut palms on Trinity Beach which is where I lived in Cairns. Seems a long time ago now, which is was!
