A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Monday 26 December 2016


There's probably no one at the beach right now, because they are all hanging in their hammocks, lying in the shade, relaxing perhaps after a touch of over-indulgence at the dinner table yesterday.   Yes, it's one of those oddities of life, that despite temperatures hanging in the early thirties, we still mostly cling to that old British tradition of taking part in a monster baked lunch on Christmas Day.

Why do we do that?

Probably so we can do nothing on boxing day and feel quite good about it.   "Where are the people" you ask, "Surely if things were as crowded as you suggest, there'd be people in this shot - you didn't take it earlier did you?"

Umm.. you've got me there.   I did perhaps prepare this one a day or two ago, but I can say with confidence that the scene probably looks like this today, because, well, they'd all be at the Sales wouldn't they?
