I've only seen snow three times in my life ( once in Japan, once in Switzerland and once here on a short skiing holiday) so all the photos I see on blogs showing snow amazes me. On the other hand I have seen lots of sand - and here's some more.... This is from another day trip two days ago. This time we went south - to Northern New South Wales ( this is just a bit further south than the Gold Coast).This is one of my favourite places, Cabarita Beach.
The family had fun - you can see them walking along to the swimming section of the beach in the first photo. The second photo shows the beach looking north.
