I surveyed the vast expanse of the shore, and could count the people with my fingers and toes. It was lean season no doubt. And I wondered how many of them are like us, vagabonding and taking advantage of the low season's cheap holiday deals.
Due to the absence of sunscreen, we bleakly stepped out of the sand after quarter of an hour and onto the paved path of the adjacent park to retrieve my flip flops and the hubby's shoes.
We sat on the grass under a tree nearby. I watched our daughter Luna crawl, roll over, and almost eat grass. And every so often, she would wriggle her toes because she could still feel the particles of sand in between them. I was flushed with delight. Less than a week into our big (possibly RTW) trip and she's already discovering things on her own.
When we were about to leave, I swept my eyes from the sapphire blue sea to the cream colored shore to The Esplanade. The presence of asphalt roads and tall buildings does not give North Burleigh's beach a tropical hideaway aura, yet I am attracted to it.
It's just our first destination, and already I have a candidate for our future home address... If and when we decide to end our "settling around".
