On the weekends and in school holidays, Wellington Point is a haven for fishing, boating and various water sports.
I spotted a Brahminy Kite soaring in the sky, as they typically do. I was very happy with this capture as I am quite partial to photographing birds.
On the weekends, the jetty is full of fishermen & kids. It was rather deserted this afternoon.
A lone sail boat out on the beautiful clear water with North Stradbroke Island in the background.
Massive Moreton Bay Fig trees provide a fantastic natural playgound for children who like to climb.
A perfect day to be paddling in the water as the tide comes in.
At low tide you can walk out on the sand spit to nearby tiny King Island to investigate this unique conservation area, or visit Wellington Point Conservation Wetland. Though the tide was on the way in by this stage.
As the tide came in, the sun began to set over the clear, calm waters of the bay.
A man & his "best friend" enjoy the beautiful sunset.
There is something so beautiful & amazing about a sunset! What a beautiful way to enjoy the end of a lovely warm Spring day.
(Yes, it's Spring in Australia!)
"When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator." ~ Mahatma Ghandi
I am grateful today for beautiful weather and another opportunity to appreciate God's creation.
I plan to go back later this week with my youngest daughter for some more photography.
