the last few days we camped at 80 mile beach. sounds a little over the top? when aussies say something is an ’80 mile beach’ it probably is actually that long, or at least not far off. it does have this certain endless feel to it, and then there is also the distinct lack of fellow humans which makes it look even bigger. and you can drive on it, too.

which could be a bit of a problem because the beach is also a nesting area for loggerhead turtles, but the resident park ranger explained that during the time between the turtles nesting and the hatchlings making their way to the ocean it is hot and rainy here so nobody would want to be here let alone drive on the beach. i hope this is true.

anyway, here is another time lapse movie: sunset on 80 mile beach. enjoy.
