The Sea

Some photos in and around the Bowen area in Queensland last winter 2017.
Don't know who these two people are, they were looking for shells.




The fish and chip shop down by the wharf with lovely fresh fish daily - for lunch oneday we had Barramundi and chips, my favourite fish.  This fish shop was extremely busy the line was 2 and out the door.








For those that love to live by the sea the 3 above photos is your view because there are houses behind me.


Down where we had a picnic this the water park for the children and of course adults to stand under and get cool.

Birds of Bowen, Queensland

Now if you saw a bird or watched a bird go on it's side then upside down as in feet in the air and laying on it's back, you might think, Oh it died!  Well that's exactly what we thought when having a picnic lunch by the water near the first caravan park we stayed in in Bowen and saw this bird.
The photos were taken with my phone so not the best quality.





The bird in question - sorry that the image is not sharp but it's the phone.






The above bird don't know it's name either, there is a also a blue one.
Below is our seagull.

Flagstaff Hill, Bowen

Good views from Flagstaff Hill in Bowen. Views from Rose Bay, along the expanse of Kings Beach, across to the lighthouse on North Head Island, Stony Island, Gloucester Island back to the Marina, and across town, you will feel like you're on top of the world. Binoculars and a look-out tower ensure the best view in the Whitsundays.
A few photos from up on Flagstaff Hill.

Black and White in Bowen, Queensland.

First evening in Bowen in Queensland we headed to a Marina, it was a lovely still evening so we sat on a seat and watch the sun go down.

Have a few photos in colour and black and white - a vast difference.
