Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Went to the Maroochye River and found this beautiful pelican.


Not far from the Spit is a Marina




Opposite are these buildings


Further on we stopped at the lights so I took the below photo out the window of the vehicle.

  1. I've come across a colony of white Cans south of Tampa...but otherwise we see nothing but brown pelicans. From a distance they look bland, but up close, amazing how much color they don.

    Cheers

  2. Australian Pelican is a wonderful species. I am sure we will encounter it several times later this year.

  4. That is a handsome Pelican - I hadn't realised before just how close their eyes are to their beaks.

  5. You have featured a number of modern seaside apartments in your travels and I do think generally they look quite good. Lots of palm trees help.

  6. It is the pelican which sings to me rather than the apartments. I have never lived in one, and doubt that I will.

    1. Just had holidays in apartments so far, we don’t always take the caravan.

    1. Thanks Lee. Was a little difficult as to which photo I should choose to post.

  9. The apartments look nice, but so many and so close together, looks like you could almost hop from one balcony to another to go visiting.
    The water and pelican are a good photo.

    1. I suppose the apartments were built to get the best view of the sea..

  12. I remember those apartment buildings well. Friends stayed in a front one on holidays. The views were fantastic..........ideal for whale watching with binoculars as they go up and then down the coastline.
    I think the road (from memory) up the hill is the road to Buderim. Now that is a place worth visiting on one of your northern winter trips.
