I’m in Surfers Paradise, I haven’t been here before so I wasn’t sure what I was coming to. The culture in this coastal town, is commanded by the beach. Everything is surf shops and beach wear and bars. Its a real tourist town, its laid back and happy. Palm Trees, green everywhere, and well it is raining too. I’m here for 4 days on a health and nutrition seminar. It’s raining like crazy here. I can say I kind of like being at the beach when its raining, probably has something to do with me being sun phobic. I love watching the water as it washes in and out. It has a real mind of its own. Its strong and wild. Unpredictable and churning and turning, renewing the beach for the next day.
They do even have the red and yellow flags set out in case anyone should swim in the early morning. Kids are playing, but what I notice most is there is hardly any ocean “stuff” washing up. I found a couple shells, a few rocks, some bubbles from creatures living beneath the sand, as the tide recedes to and fro. Except no other bits, like sticks, and bits of seaweed, and broken bits of shell. You know? Its really clean. What washes up on your beach. Is your beach clean or is it full of sea weed and “ocean” things?
