Pumicestone Passage
A week of the blues day six.

Another day another puddle in the passage.  That murky stuff in the foreground isn't actually murky stuff at all, it's just sand in the very late afternoon, the remnants of excavations by soldier crabs.   More importantly, the tower is a lighthouse of sorts.  It provides lighting to mark the main shipping channel to Brisbane located on the outside of Bribie Island (on the left).  There's a tricky little bend that happens just abeam of Caloundra that's been the nemesis of more than one ship over the years in stormy seas.
