Paraglide at Rainbow Beach



 

The thermals must be good at the moment, because we had a parade of paragliders passing the house.  One photo shows someone just taking off from Carlo Sand Blow with Double Island Point in the background.  From the sand blow they drift up and down, riding the thermals back along to Rainbow Beach.   We are all convinced that we would like to try paragliding because they look so relaxed, literally just having a little sit down in their floating seats.

On the sand dunes today there were three paragliders doing circuits over the beach - one you can see above was "sand surfing", being dragged along the dunes by the sail.   The haze in the sky is from the fire on Fraser Island.
