I love the beach. I love to walk on the beach early in the morning and in the late afternoon. Take a look at some of the fun things I saw in the last days of spring at Main Beach on the Gold Coast here in sunny Queensland.
A life saver going out for some early morning practice.
I like the matching green floaties.
Building sand castles is always fun.
We used to do a version of the next activity when I was young. It was called skim boarding. Our boards were round and we would throw them onto the sand after a retreating wave and run and jump on them and skim across the film of water. The boards were flat and if you hit a bump a painful tumble would follow.
The new boards are a different shape, but the idea is the same.
Taking the dog for a swim.
Just watching the water is fun too.
I think this would be one of the more enjoyable police beats.
Waiting for waves.
The waves weren’t very big, but I saw some good rides.
There is a different way of surfing that I haven’t seen before.
The riders stand up on their boards and paddle to catch a wave. It looks extremely difficult, but there were quite a lot of people doing it.
Just hanging around is fun too.
The lifesavers bring in the boat after practice.
Meet George (with the fish) and Milton catching dinner.
And the seagull keeps watch.
