Thursday Island #2

The foreshore on Thursday Island has been redeveloped in recent years and now includes these beautiful turtle sculptures - at this time of year, the doldrums, they are heading to the water for a cool off. Woven hats and baskets are available for purchase at the cultural centre shop  as well as exquisite items made from recycling the ghost nets that trap and kill anything unfortunate enough to become entangled. I couldn't take any photos inside of course - be assured some of the best lino print and other art works in the world reside within its walls. I love this time of year in the Far North - the colour of the foliage - purple, reds and green and of course, the fishing!
