Morning Walk

As part of my new life here in North Queensland I am taking a walk into to town and back every morning. This takes about an hour, longer when you stop and take pictures. These were all taken this morning on my return journey. I would appreciate help with identifying species. (Warning: Lots of Photos)
Noisy beach goers

Strong Silent Types

Remains of an old Jetty

Fruit Trees

Very Tall palm Trees

Ground hugging spotty leaves

Ferns in trees

Night time partying

Tracks in the Path

Mud Skippers

More Fruit

Fungi

evidence of colour

Leaf marks left in the path

More leaves

Glider

Most delicious smelling Eucalypt
Wafts of rich sweet honey

I don't want to meet the one who makes these marks



Mr Snappy jaws

Wonderful mural on the Public Toilets

My friend the crab
It is nice to meet relatives

A few more mates

Mother Nature makes her own prints



Wonderful images

Bird tracks, I suspect Cassowary



Big Pods

Palm tree fruit, but is it edible?
Or give colour?

Nearly home

A trio

of Grevilleas

II am slowly getting accustomed
to my new exotic environment
And now that I have a large glass jar
Thanks to last nights pasta sauce
I can do a bundle 
with some of the collected windfalls

New Studio Cardwell North Queensland

I have a list

And an assortment of ingredients
in the spare room

and some in the wardrobe

But to see where the action will happen
we have to ascend the spiral stairs

Nearly there

The undercover area with water
and power

The outside area complete with astro turf!!

And the view
Looking out over the marina

And out to the ocean
this has to be inspiring

Back downstairs to the living area

Some inspiration from Elizabeth Bunsen

And the Name of the Units 
I am now residing in?
Inspirations

How cool is that
