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.

    1. You tell me you don't have one for use in the area where you live! You do need to acquire one :)

  2. beautiful photos/location! The comment slowness has been fixed, so I went back to embedded comments, because I like replying to each commenter at my blog, and it flows natural when embedded.

  3. I'm imagining me living in one of those houses and waking up to that view every day for the rest of my life. I can probably go back to sleep now with these images in my head. zzzzzzzz

  4. I first saw an emptying bucket fountain in New Zealand. They are great fun. It is a lovely outlook to gaze out upon.

    1. Those buckets are great fun for the children plus the water slide. We first came across this in Renmark a few years ago.

  9. I do love the sea. If ever I win the lottery a house on the water would be high on my list.
    Blogger seems to have fixed the slow commenting issue now. Which is a relief.

    1. My late parents house was by the sea, beautiful sea views and beach below - I sold the house because we didn't want to live in their city :)
      Thank goodness blogger is fixed for commenting and I have put it all back to normal.

  10. As I said in my response to your previous post, I love the Bowen area and its beautiful beaches. I spent quite a lot of time there back in the 90s, both visiting for weekends when I was working out at Collinsville, and also when I managed a resort at Horseshoe Bay for a brief while.

    Beautiful area.

    1. It is a lovely area, it's grown but still lots of room for many houses.

  12. What a wonderful view those houses have! Here only the very wealthiest can afford to have beach views. I love the texture of the rocks on the beach.

    1. Always Real Estate Agents ask more money for view of the sea but some places here in Tasmania more remote areas it's a lot cheaper.

  13. Plenty of water activities for locals and tourists.
    I do not like barramundi even if it is so popular and mostly
    quite pricy. Sea Trout and flathead are my choices.

    1. Don't mind the price of barramundi one can buy a big enough piece for a reasonable price and I'm the one that usually eats it, not often does Shank's Pony eat 'my' barramuni :)
      Trout is a lovely fish as is flathead.
