A new book on the sand is here!
Written by Sarah, the mother of two beach goers, this new book looks at the adventures of two little girls who are just starting their own families.
This is the perfect book for anyone who is interested in exploring the beaches of Queensland and New South Wales.
Read more Sarah and her husband, Scott, both surfers, were visiting Australia with their son, son-in-law and daughter-in a bid to see as much of the country as possible, and their beach trip was a perfect opportunity to get to know the different areas of Queensland.
When the family returned home they began to take some photos of the beaches.
Their daughter was the first to do so, as she took the photos with her iPhone.
When her father went to collect the photos from the beach, Sarah had an idea.
She contacted the ABC and the ABC gave her permission to post the photos to their website, which allowed for a much wider audience to enjoy them.
The photos have been shared over 10,000 times.
Sarah says that she was excited when she heard from the ABC that the photos had been shared by more than 1,000,000 people.
The beach trip had a huge impact on her, and she is determined to continue sharing the pictures on social media.
Sarah also wants to continue the beach trip for her two sons, and will be looking for a way to keep them involved in the local communities.
The book also has an introduction by the Queensland Government’s Commissioner for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, Mr Alan Kelly, who explains how the book came to be.
‘The book was written in response to the flood of reports from parents and residents that there was a significant increase in the number of children in the sand during the summer and that sand was unsafe for children to play in,’ Mr Kelly said.
‘I’m not sure what the actual reason was for the publication of the book, but we think that it does provide a better understanding of what happened on the beaches and also gives parents the chance to share their stories in a more constructive manner.’
Read more Surfers who have taken pictures of the beach have shared their experiences on social platforms.
One user posted on Facebook: ‘I have taken photos of surfers in the ocean.
They are safe and secure, but I still have to wonder what happened to their bodies.
The story is the same.
I would love to know why they were taken and why they are now out there.’
Another posted on Instagram: ‘My brother and I just surfed off Bali and it was a little rough but we were able to surf the surf and stay safe and safe, as the surfers we saw in the photo were also safe and secured.’
We also surfed the beach on a couple of days there.
It was great, and we were surfing all night and were able a few times to see the water.
It did take a little while to get the photo, but the photo I took on my phone showed a lot of water and sand.
It didn’t look very safe at all.’
Another user commented: ‘When we took our photo we were just about to go out into the ocean and there were some really big waves.
But the surf came, and it washed over our faces and onto our backs and shoulders and our heads and it made us think we were going to die.
I know a lot more people have been injured by surfing this beach.’
Some of the photos have also been shared on Facebook.
One woman shared on Instagram a photo of her son in a beach towel and wrote: ‘It took us a while to take this photo because of the sand and it is not a perfect picture but I just wanted to share this because the pictures you are sharing are just amazing.’
Another woman wrote on Facebook that she had been bitten by a shark while surfing in the South West and had to go into hospital.
‘My son has had a few shark bites and the bites on his arms have also left scars,’ she wrote.
‘He also got a few bumps in his back and shoulder.
I have to say I am happy that I was able to enjoy the surfing because it was safe and clean.’
