Exploring Contemplation on Boyne Island  –

Not that long ago, I found myself walking along the beach at Boyne Island after a recent storm had flushed the sands with stones, and I found myself in a moment of contemplation as I explored the coast and thought back on my January up to that point.

Clouds puncture a blue sky

The skies were that piercing deep blue punctuated with clouds in multiple formations, I could not tell you what they are called, but they always fill my heart with beauty.

Clouods roll like waves in the sky.

There is something about seeing the rolling clouds in the sky over the water. It is almost like you watch two different yet linked processes play out at different speeds. The clouds crash through the skies as the waves lap up on the beach.

A cargo ship hangs in the distance like a toy on the water.

At Boyne Island, you also see the stark juxtaposition of the natural and manufactured world as giant cargo ships roll by in the distance, looking like toy figures from afar but with the realisation that you are looking at colossuses from a distance.

While it was a scorcher of a day, even a wide-brimmed hat would only go so far in keeping the heat off. Sitting down and watching the waves roll in, bringing in new sand and taking in some of the beach with them was still relaxing.

Fish and Chips.

It was a moment of calm to reflect on a month full of professional highs and personal lows. But alas, nothing lasts forever. Soon the weather turned, and rain clouds appeared on the horizon, calling our sojourn on the beach to a close. However, when you are near the beach, there is no better way to celebrate that than by having fish and chips in sight of the water. So that is absolutely what we did at the Tannum Sands Surf Lifesaving Club.
