Airshow and Noosa Head

During the short drive from Tin Can Bay toward Noosa, we noticed there was an airshow happening and John suggested that we check it out.  I got to feed a dolphin today, everything else will just be gravy  :)  So definitely, let's see the airplanes.

There were lots of small models on display, and perhaps John was imagining what it would take to fly one:


Some really neat aircraft (and no, I know nothing about planes, so I can't explain what we were looking at, but it was fun to consider what it would be like to go up in the sky in one):


What?


Ah, right, the wing holder for a glider:


There were a few other types of transportation on display, including some older models of motorcycles:


Fun model, and we saw it later getting ready to fly:


Adorable little Mini:


A formation of planes (including 2 biplanes) buzzing the runway:


Long-EZ, one of the original planes to test flying on high fuel efficiency:


For some reason I seem to think this is more my speed, even though I have very little experience flying in one:


Love the Ultralight concept:


We spent the rest of the day roaming around the trails at Noosa Head, starting from the Sunshine Beach side:


Heading along the dunes toward the Noosa hills:


I like how the lighting came out here:


Not sure what this dirt ball is doing on this tree, maybe related to termites?


Another shot from the same angle, this one with more interesting lighting and colors:


Big waves along the rocks in Alexandria Bay:


Trying to capture the sight and sound of the waves - not sure you can see, but there are a couple folks surfing in the background:



An eggplant on the beach??


Sea birds on the rocks, I think they are cormorants:


Rocky shoreline as I made my way around the "head" of Noosa Head:


It really was a good day to have a camera for the scenery shots:


Specks of surfers waiting on the waves:


Another fun day in Australia!
