30d30m#10: Urunga Boardwalk/ Breakwater and Mylestom Spit

Being the weekend, I had time to explore beaches a little further from the usual. On Sunday I took a 15 minute drive south to Urunga. A boardwalk follows the breakwater from the caravan park in town all the way to the beach.

It was a warm day, but the sand on the beach was clogged with piles of driftwood – probably from the recent weeks of storms – and didn’t look very swimmer friendly.

Today’s beach visit was later than usual. This meant I was in time for the sunset and some colourful clouds.

Click on the photos below to view the hi-res versions on Flickr. I really like the first one, capturing the motion of the waves breaking and the seagull strolling along.

I’m not happy with the result of this panorama, but it gives you a glimpse of the effect the sunset had on the sky late this afternoon…
