“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive.” ~ Eleanora Duse.
Every single aspect of the Point Danger Lookout had the power to move me this week, and indeed, I did rejoice!
And I believe that I was not the only one affected. There were people everywhere, walking, taking photos, or simply sitting and passing the time of day. No one seemed to be in any hurry to leave.
There was magic in the air; filling the blue skies, the crashing waves, and the green grass.
The highrise buildings of Surfer’s Paradise showed up clearly along the horizon.
In the next photo, you can see that even a seagull was flying high! You may have to click on the photo to enlarge it though, to see him soaring across the sky in front of the rays from the sun.
Whichever way I turned I could see, and feel, the gentle energy in the air. Was it the sun? The ocean? The sounds of the waves?
Who cares! It was there to enjoy, and enjoy I did.The car park was full, yet there was hardly any traffic sounds. The “Sounds of Nature” dominated every sense I have.
I took this last photo through my car window, as I was about to leave. I had noticed a couple who had stopped to admire the ocean, and a magpie who had momentarily stopped walking along the grass. As I started up my car, the couple headed in one direction, the magpie in the other.
We were all headed off, on our way to who knows where, each having shared just a little touch of magic.

Imagine all that blue-green water, sparkling in the sunlight. Oh, it is a beautiful sight. Thanks for sharing – I don’t see spans of water that color – ever. How I enjoyed your tour.
Thank you Bo, I’m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed my ocean photos. 🙂
Once again some wonderful photographs of an area that DOES have a little touch of magic. Last time I was there I had lunch at that little Cafe/Restaurant/Art Gallery across the road from the Carpark.
Hello Chris. 🙂 The cafe you mention is the D’Bar Cafe and I took a photo of it recently, which you can see here ~ http://www.home-life-online.com/the-beauty-in-dull-weather-days.html
You know Chris, even the young ones are beginning to discover the magic of Point Danger. My 19 year old daughter buys coffe and sits there at times, just because she like being there. 🙂
My soul is alive – oh so alive! Thank you for sharing, for giving me another reason to rejoice.
You feel it too Carol? Isn’t it amazing? If you ever find yourself visiting Australia, you simply must visit Point Danger in person. 🙂
Beautiful photos! What an awesome spot.
Thank you Sheryl. I had fun sharing this beautiful area with you. 🙂
Magic indeed! I love the sun flares you captured. The water and sky look amazing. I can see why everyone was out and about, enjoying such a wonderful day. 🙂
Thank you Robin. 🙂
