Camel Train by onewing

Camel Train

Sorry I am a bit absent at the moment from 365, but pretty busy right now. I will catch up as soon as I can.

I took this photo yesterday afternoon at Birubi Beach. I love camels and the rides at the beach are very popular with tourists and locals alike.

I have a hospital appointment in the morning and then out tomorrow evening so another busy day.

How interesting! I didn't know any beaches in NSW did camel rides!

I do hope you are ok Babs. This such a beautiful ocean shot. Just made me laugh as we are usually used to donkeys giving rides on the beach. I wonder if this would catch on in the UK?
March 13th, 2017  
I didn't know there were camel rides so close by either! lovely scene
March 13th, 2017  
Hope all goes well with you hospital visit ,and an enjoyable evening out . A lovely capture and like @rookynook immediately thought of our donkey rides in the UK !! -- You must remember them Babs !!

This is wonderful! Camels on the beach, oh my!

I thought this was somewhere in Africa. Beautiful capture. Very unusual to see camels on the beach.
March 13th, 2017  
Wonderful composition with lovely layers and detail, a tourist must do adventure on Birubi Beach, great image Babs:)
March 13th, 2017  
Hope all goes well with your hospital visit. I love the camel train but am in awe of the beautiful waves rolling onto the beach :)
March 13th, 2017

Must be an amazing thing to see!

I love riding on a camel and would love to do a day trip on one. I love how they sway and feel much more comfortable than a horse. We have them down at Victor Harbor and they also do trips through the vinyards and down the Coorong. Hope all goes well tomorrow

Wonderful capture. Fav
March 13th, 2017  
Lovely capture, Babs.

Looks like it's out of Africa.
March 13th, 2017  
What a great sight to see
March 13th, 2017  
Wow! This is amazing. Must have been quite a site to see, or at least it would be for me. Being from Texas, USA, we would be seeing horses or cows.
March 13th, 2017  
When I opened this, I first thought it might be at the Dead Sea. Quite a site!
March 13th, 2017  
That's wonderful. I love it. I once rode on a camel in the Flinders Ranges!
March 13th, 2017  
Super capture. Not a place I would expect to see camels.
March 13th, 2017  
Fabulous photograph! Like Sally, I would not expect to see camels there! Hope your appointment goes well. Fav
March 13th, 2017  
Beautiful and so unusual. It's a shame that the leader has to walk.

I thought at first it was in the Middle East, and was surprised when I read your narrative. Great composition and a timeless shot. Fav
March 13th, 2017  
A lovely capture, it makes a change from donkey rides!! Fav
March 13th, 2017

Fascinating capture, Babs, and how cool they have rides at the beach on the camels.
March 13th, 2017  
Love this shot Fav
March 13th, 2017  
what a wonderful sight.
March 13th, 2017  
I love this -- camels on the beach is certainly not something I've seen before! Great composition too.
March 13th, 2017  
Cool scene!
March 14th, 2017  
Gosh, never seen camels on an Aussie beach before (lots of photos from Broome, of course). Love this shot, could be taken in a Gulf country.
March 14th, 2017  
cool scene
March 14th, 2017  
I love this scene, and you are lucky to live so close to it.
March 14th, 2017  
This is so amazing- I'm used to seeing camels in the Middle East but not Australia! Very cool. They are fun to ride on so I understand why they are so popular. fav

Wonderful capture Babs
March 14th, 2017  
Wow what a sight ... fav
March 14th, 2017  
Terrific Babs :)
March 14th, 2017  
Presume your appt is last week's postponement. If Dr is back on form, let's hope and pray he can treat you appropriately.
March 14th, 2017  
Hope the appointment went well
March 14th, 2017  
Holy Cow or Camel .....Amazing sight
March 14th, 2017  
so unusual ... wonderful capture ...fav
March 14th, 2017  
Really cool capture :)
March 14th, 2017  
I like this a lot. I once edited a book on camel health and recall being very surprised at reading of the not insignificant camel population in Australia.
March 15th, 2017  
Wonderful capture, Babs, we did the camel ride in Broome...wonderful experience.
March 15th, 2017  
What a fabulous capture! I had no idea there were camels in Australia!! That's news to me! I hope your hospital appointment went ok Babs.

@stephanies The link may be of interest to you. http://camelfarm.com/camels/camels_australia.html
I am not sure when this was posted but in 2013 the number of feral camels in Australia reached 600,000.

Pam
That is a fantastic capture!
March 16th, 2017  
For some reason that link won't work for me Babs, but I googled it anyway and read about it on wiki... the only country with a feral camel population! I had no idea it was so vast!! I was also reading about how they put camel meat in dog food but then stopped as they found it caused liver disease in some dogs due to the plants the camels eat. I am curious to know - can you buy camel meat in the supermarkets Babs? and is it expensive?
March 16th, 2017  
it's a beautiful beach
March 17th, 2017  
Fabulous shot.
March 19th, 2017  
Congratulations on this making it to the Top Twenty Babs!
March 21st, 2017  
Well spotted. and Great shot. Camels were introduced to Oz 150 years ago and most now consider the a pest.
March 23rd, 2017  
Wow! What an incredible sight!!!!

Congratulations on TT!
