Royal National Park (4/6) - warning


Gairie Beach is a world of beauty and a world of immense danger. Billowing nimbus clouds spill over the escarpment from the south-west, enveloping the life-saving club house, armed and ready to warn of sharks circling in the off-shore rips.


Often humans forget that they are sharing the natural world with the animal world and invade and destroy thoughtlessly.


Eagle Rock is part of an ongoing erosion process that is goaded by the power of wind, rain, and heat as well as the depredations of humans.

Yikes, attacking birds! But who wants to blame them for protecting their brood.

The words swooping birds and sharks are resonating after reading your post. I'd really like this but I fear that it's not my cup of tea!

Respect is all that is required, VP. You would be fine! Many of us succumb to over-confidence in the natural world.
