“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.” ~ Robert Wyland
It's no secret to my readers that the beach is my "happy place".
Casuarina Beach runs almost due south for 8 km from Cudgen Headland and Creek to the rocks just north of Norries Head, at Cabarita Beach.

Almost completely encircled by a nature reserve, lake and its beautiful beaches, Cabarita Beach is an unspoiled pocket of paradise on the Tweed Coast.
Cabarita Beach, only 20km south of the QLD border, is one of our favourite destinations on the Tweed Coast. The original name of this charming seaside village was Bogangar, an Aboriginal name, meaning "place of many pippies".
Down on the rocks below Cabarita Hill, just north of Norries Head.
Looking north, all the way to Fingal Head in the distance.
Looking south along Maggies Beach from the Cabarita Foreshore Trail which takes you up to the top of Norries Headland, where there are stunning uninterrupted views to the north and south.
More views south from the top of Norries Headland.
Looking south along Maggies Beach; the rocks below are called "Razor Back" and the headland in the distance is Hastings Point.
Looking down on Norries Cove, immediately south of Cabarita Beach. The 200 m long beach is tucked in between Norries Head and the rocks and bluff that separates it from Cabarita Beach. This is an unusual beach, in that it varies tremendously in size and shape depending on the pulses of sand (sand waves) moving around Norries Head.
Facing west, we watched the sunset, just the two of us. While it wasn't one of the most stunning sunsets I have witnessed, it was certainly serene.
I am always in awe of God's special way of "announcing" the end of the day!
I've been suffering severe withdrawals from our regular weekend beach trips (usually every 1-2 weeks) due to some surgeries and a prolonged hospital stay during the last 6 months.
I'd give anything to walk along the sand by the waters edge. I do hope I can head down to the beach this weekend...
