A life long ambition for dune girl

Only to be inspired by the dynamic nature of dunes is also quite the characteristic that describes me too - Naomi Edwards.

That’s it! Forget 3, 5 and 10-year goals. If it can’t be rolled into something bigger, better and more meaningful it isn’t worth it.  Aim high with bite-size achievable goals and you’ll also fuel your enthusiasm for more – and remember to have fun along the way.

If you have been following one or one too many Coastal Tangents, it’s evident that I drop the ‘dune’ word quite frequently. The fundamental reasoning behind my obsession with dunes is due to the fact that dunes form the building blocks for sandy beaches and much, much more. Without dunes, there would be no beach and no beach could result in 86% of Australia’s population heading west to see the other kind of dunes – taking the assumption that most Australian’s love dunes too. Actually, this could be a good strategy for climate change adaptation (despite the peaking temperatures out west and by then Lake Eyre will probably be contaminated, dry or a pond for Ibises. Meh!). Though, wait long enough to reap the benefits of The Queensland Plan’s cyclic-futuristic goals, you could still be around in +2100 and west might be the cool new coastal dune hang out.

Geez, I am becoming an aging sour dune girl… or losing my dune.

Well, I really don’t intend to persuade your passion or lifelong goals towards dunes, rather grab your attention to follow my lifelong goal. That being to visit the largest dune on every continent and document the most hidden secrets of the near-too-pristine dunal systems.

So, just maybe, the closest I get to achieve my lifelong goal, the closest I may get to understand dunes, me and I. Did I just compare myself with a dune?  Dune – I am dune girl.
