Awoke early this morning so I decided to go for a walk along the beach before sunrise. The air wasn’t very clear as smoke from the bushfires was heading our way – we couldn’t even see the buildings in Surfers Paradise. Hence no photo of the sun rising above the horizon as I had anticiped, however there were plenty of interesting textures and colours in the waves and sand.

Home for breakfast then to supermarket for a restock. By then a sea breeze had developed and the smoke had cleared, so out walking again with gd who had stayed home to watch the game early this morning.
