Wish I was there!


There's nothing like it, but with my abilities or lack thereof,  if I was the only other surfer out, I'd accidentally drop in on him and ruin his wave!

Wiggly lines


I wonder what the surfing term for a wiggly line of waves is?

Whatever it is, it's swell! 😂

Buying a consonant.


Senseless destruction.   We need an MoffATeEr'S LooKouT.

I hope their Mum's are very proud of them.... maybe she's even gone all crafty and made fridge magnets from her idiot children's handiwork.  At least if she has, someone is benefitting from the thought.

Tip Turkey


The poor old white ibis is much maligned - it's hard to believe that it's not got something to do with it's general lack of attractiveness.   There's no doubt the species does breed well when there's ample food (but which species doesn't?).   But really, does it really deserve  monikers like "Bin Bird", "Dumpster Diver", Flying Rat.... and I could go on?

PIneapple? Nope!


A week out of sequence, but here we see the fruit of the pandanus.  On the left the hard green bit impersonating a pineapple, on the right the ripe orange one, with fruit segments already fallen.    For a peek at what those bits look like, go back one week! (perhaps that's only one post?)

Technically these are the fruit of the pandanus, not the nuts but they are the size of a child's fist, hard, and heavy and they give a fair old bonk if they hit you on the head.

SUP


Once upon a time "SUP" was a contraction for the greeting "What's up?"  Now of course it's "Stand Up Paddleboard".   A year or two ago, some visiting friends from Europe were astonished to see them being ridden in the surf - we on the other hand were astonished that anyone would contemplate using them in still water!

This photograph was actually taken in May, which technically is in Autumn, and the giveaway is that there is just a touch too much cloud about, but it's still quite reminiscent of a winter's day at Moffat Headland.

Pointless destruction


Our Council has an interesting dynamic.  The planners plan, and someone pays vast sums of money for designers to design, and landscapers to landscape.   Then, the maintenance guys come along, and don't like maintaining anything that can't be trimmed with a mower, so out it all comes and off to the tip.

This, at the end of our street was once a nice hedge of native grasses less than a metre high.  Perhaps it will be lawn by the time I get back.

Sunset at Moffs


There are a few reasons why I'm chugging away with the phone.  For starters, when this shot was taken my camera weight was above my surgically induced lift limit.  That aside my previous phone(s) supposedly had pretty good cameras for their time, but this one has blown me away.  So here I am perservering in mixed (low) light at sunset, and it's just taken control!

Blurring what a camera can be. Moffat Beach

Unable to gather sufficient photos to get me through the coming six months, this "Daily" blog will become bi-weekly for at least that time.   As you read this I am already well on my way to a place far from here!

Day two of my experiments with the new phone, and I'm already beginning to wonder whether I'm game to cut down my carry-on luggage by a few more kilos!

The New Phone goes to Moffat Beach


Unable to carry the weight of a camera for a time, and needing a new phone, well I went to the top shelf didn't I?  Here is one of the first photos I took with it, part of a panorama in difficult light conditions.  Forget the composition, I was really just trying to get bits of light and shadow into the shot.   I'm not a new phone kind of guy, but let's just say I'm impressed.

A Night in Hospital


It's been a while, and perhaps some will be relieved to discover it may be a while longer until normal posting resumes.    I do want to apologise for the concern I caused some by allowing this blog to go "dark" immediately following the publishing of the hospital carpark photo in March, and thank you to all who contacted me to enquire as to my well being.  The photo was an unintentional portent of things that were to come.

I am indeed quite well after a lengthy but perfectly normal recovery from a bit of surgical correction which has left me rather without photographs to share.

To make matters worse it's left me without my usual catalogue which enables me to post daily while on our annual migration to the other side of the world.

I have gathered a scattering of photos over the past few weeks as mobility has improved, and if I eke them out we may well have a bi-weekly blog until our return from places other than this one.

Thank you for your understanding. Hopefully we'll resume full transmission some time in November.

Well that's the plan!

Another Car Park


My first visit to the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital carpark, left me with a few good impressions.   

As these things go, it's not expensive at five dollars for the first hour and a bit, at least at the time I was there, finding a spot was easy, and for those who are used to large hospitals in the middle of urban areas, this one is a kilometre or so from the beach and is bound on the opposite side by dense bushland.  There's not much to add about population density on the coast!

Busy 2


It's not the first time I've published a photo from the Home Centre in Birtinya, but it is the first time the monster carpark have been anything near full.

Perhaps it's the new big box hardware store that's brought the crowds, or perhaps they were just out and about before the promised storm.   In any case, the landscaping (well the trees at least) are starting to make their presence felt.  In a year or two it won't be a forest, but there'll be shade for the early birds.

Busy


The Sunshine Coast University Hosptial is open for business and it looks the part too - all hospital like and well it looks busy enough even if it's all squeaky clean and happy inside.   I wonder though at the need for a big red "Emergency" pole just a few tens of metres from the hospital.   What sort of emergency would require pressing the button just there, as opposed to knocking on the front door?

Perhaps someone who knows about these things will enlighten me.

Could it be a "Muddle of Masts" perhaps?  Why is it that if these were electricity poles or telecommunications towers they'd be considered a blight, but because they are connected to boats they are romantic and scenic and photo-worthy?

Running from the rain.


One hundred and seventy mm today, another hundred expected overnight.  Everything is greening up nicely, including the webs between my toes.   Most sensible people were tucked up in their offices or watching a movie, so I got to enjoy the lull with barely any company on the road.
