I went for a little walk around dawn along the walk way by Kirra Beach this morning, and took a few photos with my mobile phone. Just experimenting really.
This is also the first blog post I’ve tried where I upload directly off my mobile phone too.
Kirra Beach is somewhere we’ve been coming as a family for almost 20 years, and although there’s increasing development it still has a nice laid back feeling- and the beach is extraordinary – is it about 200 metres wide? When you’re standing in the middle of it you’re in a no man’s land – not in civilisation, but not in the sea – it’s beautiful.
The bird life is great here too – lots of Silver Gulls, Crested Terns, Little Terns and occasionally Brown Boobies can be seen diving for fish offshore. A few months ago I filmed an Eastern Osprey having a bath in the storm water outfall that comes on to the beach. I held my mobile phone up to my binoculars to get the footage, and it kind of works (ha ha) – I’ll post it below these pics.
Here’s a few more of my favourite pics from that part of the world, it really is a special place I think
