Photographic observations of Surfers Paradise

To wrap up my trip to the Gold Coast – now a distant memory – here are some photographic observations…

sunsetbuildings
It’s kind of weird for me, a West Australian, to see the sun NOT set over the ocean… instead you get this kind of “smudge”.

sunsetlagoon
The sun sets over the land…

beachshadow
The high risers cast a shadow over the afternoon beach.

ibis
Some of the local wildlife. I’m referring to the Ibis!

ride
It’s obviously not peak season at this fun park.

lagoon
The lagoon at the hotel I was staying in used water from the nearby canal – filtered several times – in order to support the 1000 tropical fish.

bedroom
Because everyone needs six pillows.
