Winter is here...

My brother came to visit this weekend and on Saturday, we decided to go up the beach to the Noosa North Shore.  It's about a 15 minute trip into Tewantin, where we get onto the barge and go across the river, and then about a 10 minute drive on the road, then we turned off to the beach, and drove up the beach as far as Double Island Point.

What a gorgeous day!  The sun was shining, the birds were all having a lovely time, and Ken and Mick decided to do some fishing.  I sat in the sun on my folding chair, and did some crocheting.  We moved a couple of times to find better fishing spots, but there wasn't much around.

This is how you find "pippies" or "cockles" - you look on the sand, and when you find the lumps like this, dig down about 3 inches and you'll find what's below...

Pippies!!!  Great bait!

My brother Mick on the right, and Ken on the left - in the water fishing...

Ken on the left, Mick on the right... they got a bit wet.  Did I mention it's winter here???

The beach is actually a gazetted road. It has a speed limit, and road rules apply...
So... now you know - winter is here.  I don't think I'd want to live anywhere else at the moment!!!
