O/S bloggers have treated me to assorted travelogues of their various countries sooooo...here's the famous Sufers Paradise, Queensland, Australia.
The most famous thing about 'Surfers' (as we call it) is the beach... seemingly endless, sand like talc, and often with few people... or dogs.
Over the years developers have cluttered the beachfront with high-rise buildings that cast shadows on the beach in the afternoon. This has been cause for much concern from locals who hate to lose their sun.

Street art abounds on the Gold Coast... some realist...
I loved many of the signs.... definitely a subject for another blog sometime, but here's a sample.
... and generally recovered from a hectic year,
until it was time to come home.
Will be back in the studio very shortly... stay tuned.
