Whilst Santa was relaxing from delivering presents I thought well, I should head down the Urangan Pier for sunset.

The sunset is directly ahead and you can see a faint glimmer of the light on the water to the right.

I figured a nice long exposure to get the clouds in movement was a good idea as they were moving swiftly.

<b><i>Want to know some history about Hervey Bay?</i></b>

Hervey Bay is a city in Queensland, Australia. The city is situated approximately 290 kilometres (180 mi) north of the state capital, Brisbane, and lies on the coast of a natural bay between the Queensland mainland and nearby Fraser Island. The local economy relies on tourism, for which whale watching, Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island and Hervey Bay’s calm beaches are the major drawcards.

The first recorded sighting of Hervey Bay was made by James Cook while carrying out his running survey of the east coast of Australia, on the 22 May 1770. “By noon Cook’s ship was in a position a little over half-way across the opening of Hervey Bay heading for Bundaberg. Cook named the bay “Hervey’s Bay” after Augustus John Harvey (1724–1779), later Third Earl of Bristol, a naval officer who became a Lord of the Admiralty the year Endeavour returned”.

Until recent years, Hervey Bay was a string of small townships stretching along the coast, consisting of Point Vernon, Pialba, Torquay, Scarness and Urangan. Until 1990, the towns were serviced by a rail link from the Main North Coast line that diverted from Aldershot and went to Takura, Walligan, Nikenbah then on to Pialba and Urangan. The line was a major freight point for the Port of Maryborough and for the sugar cane industry until road transport assumed the role.
