Surfers Paradise Morning Walk

The mornings are beautiful at Surfers Paradise. The light starts very early because its mid summer, and from 5am or even earlier, you can see the Keen exercising people on the beach, and the Life Guard setting up his vehicle and Life Guard area with flags for the safe swimming area.

The morning slowly awakens as the sun rises to the horizon, and the washed out pale color of the day tinges with golds and oranges of the sunrise. The morning is slowly wakening

As the day wakens, you can see the color of the buildings and the water

Then the couples come walking, some hand in hand, others walking steadily together,  mostly older people, tanned by the sun, wearing hats and matching walking clothes, looking like locals as they comfortably take their morning exercise. Then the young joggers, well dressed females with trim muscles jogging like a training routine, the odd male running by hatless and wearing earphones attached to the ipod now a part of the young. Next group are the dog walkers, in pairs, or older single women with tiny dogs attached like balls of fluff on the end of retractable leads as they walk their dogs along the edge never in the water. Here the bigger dogs come attached to males who walk them down to the water and back up again. This morning there were bicycles riding the firmer sand by the water edge. Everybody walks with a purpose, only the tourist with the camera or smart phone dawdle to capture the view

Today there were surf fishermen and a few surfies with their boards…

They all do their own things and go their own ways in the Summer Sun. No-one sees me walking by, they look ahead and walk on by alone in their own world,safe in the sun.
