This is my first post for my "Coastal" blogsite! I am not quite sure why I am starting another blog except to say that I am a girl with a great deal of passion for the sea and the coast. I have always been a water baby having grown up wind-surfing, water-skiing and swimming as the quintessential Aussie kid. Sand, sea and surf is an intoxicating combination and one which I now find as I get older that I cannot do without. I need to feel the sand beneath my feet whilst making footprints in the sand.... I need to walk aimlessly collecting shells and squinting into a brilliant blue sky..... I need to swim in the cool water and really feel at one with the beach and the ocean.
This beach is called "Long Beach" and it is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. It rivals Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays and the most beautiful thing is there is never anyone on it! This beach is on Great Keppel Island which is just off our coastline in the Coral Sea off the coast of Queensland. We take my brothers boat out here and anchor, go ashore with prawns, champagne, umbrellas and just make camp like we are the only people in the world!
Enjoy and if you are ever in my part of the world.... the land down under come and visit and I will show you this treasure!
