What a cracker of an afternoon down at Greenmount and Snapper today. So good catching up with mates too @sweetocean and @nickjonesphotography and @gl3no
It was hard for those in the surf not to drop in on each other and we saw so many close calls but they all behaved which was great to see.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend 💦💙 at Greenmount Beach
Guess who went on a 9km hike yesterday with all camera gear EXCEPT memory cards? Yep, this guy! Looks like I'm gonna have to try that one again to make up for all the missed shots... at Stoney Creek, Queensland, Australia
Our first adventure on the island was a 40minute trek across the super hot sand dunes to the deepest lake on K'gari, Lake Wabby.
Lake Wabby "is known as both a window lake and a barrage lake. Window lakes form when the ground level falls below the water table. Barrage lakes form when a sand blow blocks the waters of a natural spring. This phenomenon is easy to see at Lake Wabby. On one side its deep green waters are bordered by a giant sand dune that is slowly moving into the lake. In a century or so, the sand dune's inexorable march westward across Fraser Island will see it completely swallow the lake" (https://www.visitfrasercoast.com/Detail/ID/Lake-Wabby). _____
I have honestly never felt such hot sand before so highly recommend wearing proper shoes rather than thongs (flip flops for the non-Aussies out there 😉) and definitely take lots of water. The swim at the end is totally worth it though; such a cool spot to cool down after the sweaty walk! #lakewabby#fraserisland#visitfraserisland#thisisqueensland#travelqld#queensland
