Just yesterday, we "moved house", driving a short ten minutes north, from Coolum Beach to Peregian Beach, both on the Sunshine Coast in South East Queensland. And of course, immediately after unpacking a little, we walked down to the beach.
The change in the feeling quality of Place, was palpable. Two beaches: Coolum and Peregian. In reality, one very long stretch of beach from the rocks at south Coolum to the rocks at north Sunshine Beach, the southern edge of the famed Noosa Heads and National Park.
And although the same unravelling stretch of sand presides, the same dunes and grass and pandanus vegetation, the same sweep of the Coral Sea, the same sky and clouds, the tone of the Place is discernibly different.
