A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Friday 26 December 2008

It's over!

Another photo taken far from the Sunshine Coast, but symbolic none the less of the deflated feeling one gets when a time of festivity is over.

From today, tourists will start to arrive at the Coast in droves. The place will become crowded, and for residents the tranquility to which we are accustomed will depart for a few weeks!

It's a great time to sit quietly at home and sort my favourite pictures of last year for a day or two! I must say that finding a suitable festive shot a day was made surprisingly difficult by the distinct lack of public decoration in our immediate area. I was expecting to come across acres of windows clad in "Santa Snow", butchers wearing antlers, and children terrified at the thought of meeting Santa. Perhaps I just need to get out more!

I hope you all had a great day!

Apologies for the belated Christmas wishes. A family emergency (which thankfully proved to be non serious) put paid to most of the things I intended to do over the past few days. Hope you had a wonderful day.

Happy Holidays to one and all from Mama, Duncan, Lamont, Leland, Kailey, and Lynette, from Portland, Oregon, USA.

I love this photo!

Oh yes, didn't that Santa make us all chuckle. Hope you had a great Christmas ... we got back from our jaunt today so I have been enjoying catching up on your pics ... trying to pick which one I like best of your Christmas series.

Great picture--it describes exactly how I felt when I woke up this morning! I'm feeling better now though after looking at blog pictures from around the world.

Good image to convey the feeling many of us depart Christmas with, Peter. A number of bloggers have commented that decorations were thinner this year than usual. However, attendances at sales are up! Something in there about ego-centricity I suspect ...
