Anyone who watched the recent Commonwealth Games will recognise this spot.
Lots of sporting interviews took place on this beach, looking back towards the eerie city-scape that is Gold Coast.
Australia is so vast that coastal towns are separated by miles of deserted sandy beaches. Perfect for long walks, 4X guzzling, and Prawn BBQ-ing.
Our intrepid heroes of the beach are (L to R) Fearless Finn, Ollie the Gark, Gorgeous George, and Heroic Harv'. A more dashing set of beach bums, I have never seen.
May I ask you a (possibly stupid) question: Why are they all wearing that head gear? Gorgeous George's bow particularly neat and snazzy.ReplyDelete
It's an Aussie thing. All school children wear big hats to protect them from the sun, and always swim wearing T shirts. They also take Vitamin D tablets!Delete
Vitamin D Tablets in Australia? Belt and braces I suppose.Delete
Before I forget, and reminding me of you, a bundle of green asparagus is looking at me, waiting to fulfill their destiny. I suppose breakfast is a bit too early for them. Though I could always dip them into an egg and be all Spanish about it.
Egg and soldiers greetings,
I am not sure if it is Australia wide, but the very young surf lifesavers in my part of the country are called Nippers.ReplyDelete
Fancy a late afternoon in the sun on the Gold Coast Beach? Not where the buildings are as they shadow the beach some time around 4pm.
Well these nippers certainly are Nippers, although I'm not exactly sure what they were doing.Delete
Looks like they have joined the surf lifesavers. I presume it is an old photo as I understood two of them are staying with you at present.ReplyDelete
They've gone home now. I can't remember when they were out in Oz; a couple of years back maybe?Delete
So nice to have cousins of the same age and get along so well.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Yes, they really get on so well. It's a pity that they meet so rarely.Delete
My grandchildren will never have cousins which is rather sad. Having said that my children's cousins lived so far away they rarely saw them either.ReplyDelete
A modern malaise. The world is their playground.Delete
Having just arrived on earth from another planet, they discuss their next move....ReplyDelete
Ha-ha, that made me chuckle!Delete
You might have hit the nail on the head.Delete
It doesn't look like they are bothering with "take me to your leader" either.Delete
"Take me to McDonalds"Delete
And you are immenseley proud of them all!ReplyDelete
I am, they're all lovely boys.Delete
I am sure you miss those boys. It is so hard when our loved ones live far away.ReplyDelete
We have Skype, but it's not ideal.Delete
You write with such love and fun of your family. I enjoy reading these posts.ReplyDelete
I do love all my family, and I'm not ashamed to tell them as much. Very different to the 'stiff upper lip' days of my own father.Delete
