One Word Photo Challenge: Rainbow

I can sing a rainbow…..

This week’s One Word Photo challenge calls for a rainbow.  I have lived on the Gold Coast/Northern Rivers for about 20 year approximately.  Isnt it funny that you hear names of suburbs or towns and don’t think much of them.  Here in Australia we are lucky enough to have aboriginal derived names for a lot of our towns/cities.  Near me we have Tumbulgum (not pronounced how you would think – tumble gum… ), Tyalgum, Banora Point, where I live loosely meaning good – Banara.

I walk with a friend most days around the beach areas of Coolangatta, namely Greenmount Beach, Rainbow Bay and Snapper Rocks.  It wasn’t until I was going to put this picture up for the Rainbow challenge that I realised where it was taken – at Rainbow Bay.  Is this why is was named??  I never questioned why this Bay was named such, nor Greenmount or Snapper Rocks for that matter.  Now I will check them out so I know and not just take for granted places in my area.

So here we have my beach photo of Rainbow colours caused by a beautiful sunset taken at Rainbow Bay.


I have posted this picture before but its my only rainbow so out it must come again.  Hope you all find your rainbow!

Head on over to Jennifer Wells blog for more participants in the Rainbow challenge.
