HOW DID YOU SPEND CHRISTMAS DAY?

;

We spent our Christmas Day on Whitehaven Beach lazing on the beautiful white sand and swimming in the ocean. They handed out stinger suits for everyone to ensure that no one got stung.

I did not see any jellyfish, but these little fellows caught my attention. I have no idea what they are and they look like a plant, but clearly swim and are beautiful.

We didn’t get to the head of the river that feeds into the beach. They dropped us on the other end and it is a 7km walk. Would have loved to see that area.

We had dinner at the yacht club. While the meal was not that great, the venue was spectacular with beautiful views.

The harbour area of Hamilton Island is beautiful at night.

The handheld HDRs were a little tough with the shutter speeds slowing.

One thing I did not catch was the bats. On one night they covered the sky on a full moon –another reminder of “always carry your camera”.
