Hearts open, beach closed

We're in Queensland for Christmas. A wonderful day was had yesterday with our immediate family, which includes my sister-in-law's parents. Last night we came back to the beach and slept to the sounds of a big surf and noisy geckos.

I haven't slept so well in weeks.

Today we are confined to the pool. A cyclone and a king tide combined to hide the beach and the rockpools at Alex. In 35 years of staying here I've never seen it look like this.


  1. Wow! What a crazy, wild Christmas-time it's been.
    There is something particular soothing about going to sleep to the sounds of the waves though. I miss it. Here the bango frogs are out in force. Not so relaxing at all.
    Enjoy the rest of your stay. Loving seeing the backstory on instagram. xx

  2. OMG! Just tell me there was one mad surfer out there, the one that ignores the sign? Glad you are having a great time, Happy new Year!

  3. Hope it calms down soon - we are heading that way on the weekend.

  4. Such a shame the beach is closed when the sun is beaming down. Stay safe and enjoy QLD for me
