Every morning before breakfast I do my beach walk first, around 8 to 9 km per day — yes correct: 80 km in 10 days.

This is not only for my fitness, but for my general well being as well: Walking through the quiet streets before the day awakes, I observe over the year how houses and neighbourhood are changing: Some old houses are knocked down, another auction sign for the land to be sold, and within a few months a completely new face of the streets around us.

Shops are closing down and others are reopened. Small business trying to survive the corona crisis, many owners have brilliant ideas and others will have to give up completely. Moving on … is the word for Queenslanders.

Reaching the beach I have two options, either walking north or walking south! Because of the wind and the light and the sun and the shape of the waves I decide more or less without thinking: Every morning is different, because the sky and the ocean and the surf looks different, and last not least the beach looks different.
