A Sandy Beach Almanac

You've landed at Sandy Beach, NSW, Australia: Lat. -30.15331, Long. 153.19960, UT +10:00 – local map & zoom Google map. I live in a cabin on this beach, 25 kilometres north of the traffic and shops of Coffs Harbour, 600 km north of Sydney. My intention is to post observations of Nature and life within 1 km (1,000 paces) of my South Pacific home.

Those friendly Sandy Beach waves!

Wave to show you careRemember I said the other day (here) that there are ways apart from digging large sand traps to show four-wheel drivers how much we welcome them on beaches?

We'll be showing some cool methods over coming weeks and light years. Today's tip: the waves of Sandy Beach are an excellent way. Don't know what I'm talking about? Easy! Click the waving guy for a how-to. :)

When one Sandy Beacher does it, they think maybe someone else is being waved to. When two or three people do it, they realise they've been noticed in their shiny big cars (and remember, they thrive on attention!).

When lots of people do it -- and this works for other beaches, folks -- they see it's a movement. Their very own welcoming committee, and they feel so proud they'll be back soon for sure. Let's give a big Waving Welcome to our 4-WD mates!

Stop Press
If we can get a sponsor or sponsors for a prize or prizes, we will run a competition for photos of people waving to cars on the beach. If you have a lazy fifty, or something else to offer, and would like to be a sponsor, send me an email at pipwilson [AT] acay.com.au and help spread the "waves" from Sandy Beach all around Australia (and the world).
