Byron surfers

Tue 27th December 2011

After our walk it was time for a swim in the sea! We had a refreshing dip and watched the surfers for a while.

This is where my 70 – 300mm lens really comes in handy! I got some great pictures of some of the surfers off the coast. No idea who he is but he looks like he is having fun!

Christmas cheer

Sun 25th December 2011

This was the one thing I wanted from Christmas Day in Australia – a view like this!

Matt

Matt says...

The sea was very rough in the morning due to the cyclone off the east coast of Australia so a swim wasn’t recommended! Claire decided to get her feet wet instead.

Were am I? Where is the frost and dreary looking day?

 

Christmas Day walk

Sun 25th December 2011

What to do on Christmas morning? Go for a wander on the beach of course!

Matt says...

A beach walk with the Cleland family on Christmas morning. Slightly different to the usual Hobbs Christmas morning…

Claire says...

Min’s family do this every year and I can see why. Their local beach is beautiful and it was deserted!

 

Christmas Day treat

Sun 25th December 2011

It’s our first Christmas in Australia! Yay! This morning we took a short trip to Pottsville Beach which is minutes from Min’s Grandparents place.

Matt says...

Well this is a different view compared to my usual Christmas. Walking along the beach on the 25th of December, it certainly didn’t feel like Christmas! Stunning beaches all along the east of Australia. Beach for as far as the eye could see!

Claire says...

This beach was deserted. The waves were 2 or 3 metres high too, the result of the Cyclone off the East Coast of Australia. Walking on the beach? The best Christmas pressie ever!

 

Gold Coast love

Thu 22nd December 2011

We arrived on the Gold Coast today and check out this glorious beach – just minutes from where we’re staying. Can’t complain eh!

Matt

Matt says...

This isn’t a view I’m accustomed to seeing on the 22nd December. Not one you really get in England at this time of year. Miles of beach, completely deserted. Where’s the snow? :)

Claire says...

The Gold Coast is a huge stretch of beach on the east coast of Australia. I think I’m going to like it here!
