Day 49 - Shifting sands

Day 49 - Shifting sands
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

THIS WEEK marks the winter solstice, the shortest days of the year. The sun this week is up for less than ten and a half hours. Fortunately though the early winter westerlies are over, so most mid winter days are calm. Although the days are cool, the sun feels comfortably warm and the high humidity found over much of the year is completely absent. As a bonus, this marks the best time of year for photography, with the air being so stunningly clear. The sun is starting to set later, but the mornings are still creeping earlier, so for those of us who find it a bit hard to get up in these cold mornings, the worst is yet to come.

Today's hike starts at the campsite two thirds of the way down North Stradbroke Island. I continue heading down to the bottom of the island, crossing the deep channel to South Stradbroke Island from where I continue hiking along its peaceful remote beaches before eventually reaching the North Currigee track to where I make the short crossing of the island to the camping ground.
