Beach Road - A Road the Beckons

Beach Road is one of the roads in the caravan park we were staying at.  The beach always beckons.



  1. Yes the beach does. Love how you included leaving your shoes at the door.
    Great Fraser island photos too.

    1. Not out shoes. Someone forgot to take their's home :-)

  2. That last photo reminds me of an oil painting.

    1. I thought that too. The light was getting just right for good photos. Hence a few more shots tomorrow.

  3. Beautiful photos!
    Greetings, RW & SK

    1. Greetings to you to. I see you are newcomer to this space.

  4. Amazing how brush turkeys seem so exotic when you don't normally see them - but to the locals they're a pest!

    1. Yes they can be a nuisance but I still like them.

  5. The bottom shot is so beautiful and what a fantastic bird on top!

    1. Yes it is a lovely bird but they show no fear of humans and can be quite brazen ... they used to invade my in-laws kitchen regularly. The other thing they do is scratch up big piles of leaf litter to make their nest. In the suburbs that can be a nuisance when they scape up all the garden mulch.

      But they don't live in my area so I can view them fondly.

  6. I saw a bush turkey crossing the main street of Noosa!
    At the zebra crossing!

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
