Pumicestone Passage at Caloundra in Queensland.

Pumicestone Passage Marine Park, extends from the southern entrance to the Caloundra bar and is just over 35 kilometres long, has 24 sand islands and is bounded by 240 kilometres of shoreline. Eighty percent of the Passage is under two metres deep and dugongs frequent its waters seasonally to feed on the seagrass on the bottom of the channels in the passage. Dolphins and turtles also make the Passage home as do over 350 species of birds.

holy cow Gillian! I asked to show us some water, you have a whole ocean!
This is beautiful, I had to google a dugongs, what a cool creature! How high up are you here, looks like a long ways to me.

Thanks Wendi. Yes, the dugongs are pretty interesting. Have only seen one once, in the wild, in Moreton Bay near Brisbane, when sailing.

For this capture, I was up on the boardwalk, about 3 or 4 metres high, I guess :-)

An immediate favorite for me... the water as I love it so much, at the seaside, on a bright day, this feeling of freedom and strengh that I can find in the bird's flight too.... very poetic !
