We are mid-way through February and I’ve still not told you about January!! I had better get a move on, otherwise the month will be out!
January for me means a month of trips to the beach, to the country and preparing for going back to school. This January was no exception. I was snap-happy with so much texture, pattern and colour all about!
We went to Burleigh beach on the Gold Coast, a bit over an hour from Brisbane. The surfers were out, the kids with buckets and spades were building sandcastles and splashing in the waves!
At the north end of the beach is a fantastic headland with encrusted limpets on the rocks.
The children liked exploring the rocks when the tide was low so they could look in all the rockpools and try to get around the headland.
I have always loved the pattern and texture of limpets!
There is so much texture to be made with sand!
I thought the sand on this rock reminded me of lots of embroidered French Knots.
The sunshine and the waves on the rock creates so many beautiful colours from rusts, greys, golds, ochres and bronzes.
At South Burleigh there are more rock pools that the children like playing in and the sand is a bit more pebbley right near the headland.
There are so many colour schemes at the beach, I love the subtlety of the colours- cool greys, slate blues, sand, vanilla and rust.
I have so many more photos to share from my gallivanting around Queensland.
See you next time.
