|The boy - probably 8 or 9 years old - has a (partially obscured) red net. He expended copious amounts of energy dashing up and down, capturing white butterflies, of which there were plenty. His father told me he had already played a game of football, and swum the length of the beach countless times. Imagine having that cooped up in a living room!|
The girl on the right is his sister. The three on the left are Alannah, and her two friends, Eleanor, and Annabel. They were all VERY impressed. Alannah wants a red net. But she wanted one last week, too, to help her scoop up jellyfish.
|We were up the back of Chinamans Beach where the sand dunes had been stabilised with native grasses. The image above on the left is "Kangaroo Grass" (Themeda australis). The image above on the right, is "Hare's Tail" grass (Lagurus ovatus). The image below left is "Hairy Spinifex" (Spinifex sericeus). The hind dunes were planted with low growing forms of "she-oak", through which a short-cut has been trodden.|
|Running around stupid catching butterflies, and waves is not for everyone. Some like to evacuate their mind, and catch a fish.|
