Another Lost Shark 2012 Tour: Mission Beach Arts Festival

Winter has arrived and brought with it a clinging gloom, which makes this Lost Shark doubly excited to be heading north to the seaside town of Mission Beach this coming weekend. Earlier in the year I made my maiden trip to Cairns, so to be heading back that way again is an absolute thrill. Mission Beach is located 2hrs south of Cairns (approx 1600km north of Brisbane) and from all of the images I have seen, looks absolutely idyllic. Here’s what I mean…

And the reason I have my sights set on Mission Beach… well they are holding their inaugural Arts Festival as part of QLD Week celebrations. I am running a number of workshops, including a ginko (haiku walk) along Mission Beach, which I am sure is going to produce some amazing works, some of which will be written on large translucent paper and hung from coconut palms, while others will be etched in the sand and photographed from the air. A truly spectacular way to capture the written word! You can find out more details about the week of events at the Mission Arts site.

In anticipation of the warm salt air, I wrote this:

licking the colour
from an icy pole

Roll on Friday…
