Sunset Beauty - Tweed Heads

At the last moment, our son Matthew who lives near Perth in Western Australia, was able to get a week's leave. He flew into Coolangatta Airport, on the southern Gold Coast at 6am this morning. Rather than make an early departure to meet his arrival, we drove down mid afternoon yesterday, staying at his aunt's house. [She is away in our caravan]

It was a true joy to walk some 5 kms along the shoreline, as the sun set after our arrival. Easter holiday makers were reluctant to leave the water, let alone return to their accommodation.

The famous Snapper Rocks - if these are the numbers for sunset, it must have been incredibly crowded during the day. Surfer's Paradise in the background.

Another reknowned surfing beach, just over the headland, also crowded - Duranbah Beach.

West from the headland.

Dashing for one last wave!

Yay! We decided to stay on.
Saturday's sunset mood.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.


  1. Some great ones here.... Love the one with the cityscape in the background. Happy Easter, Helen.

  2. Glad your son was able to visit! Nice pics - that's a lot of surfers! Happy Easter to you.

  3. Wow, those are beautiful pics. Makes me miss the ocean even more.
