Magnetic sunsets

Our stay on the island has ended but not without a dramatic twilight farewell. These sunsets mesmerized us as we gazed out to Horseshoe Bay. We marveled at the beauty, the russet colours and time, for us, stood still.

Mother Nature is reminding us to take time to be still, appreciate and embrace serenity.

Sunsets herald a new day and celebrate our existence. We are grateful to have escaped the cold for a short time and now return to our mountain home. I hope you can find some time to stare out into your sunset afternoon.

Magnetic Island

Captain James Cook named this island in 1770 believing it caused interference with the magnets on board the Endeavour.

By the late 19th century Europeans had settled the island.
