Waking Up Coolum Beach – Sunday 15 July 2018

Sunday normally signals sleep-in, right? Not for me. Yesterday was such an incredible day, pure rise, air about 6 degrees C, there was a good ten feet of mist on the ocean. On sunrise the ocean steamed  into the much

The Lure of Sunrise Early on it was obvious there’d be no sunrise today at Coolum Beach, a tall steel-grey cloud guarded the east, shaped like a long dog chasing the wash. The fascination with sunrises must stem back from
