Starfish

This shot was taken on Sydney Harbour, at a beach called Clontarf. I love starfish, for some reason, they make me smile.

Abstract Aqua

I was in awe of the beautiful shades of blue in the ocean today, I almost felt transfixed.

This shot was taken at a beach called Boomerang Beach, approximately 20 kilometres away from where we are staying.

On our way back, we stopped at one of the beaches at Seal Rocks and had a much needed swim. Whilst drying off, on the beach we couldn’t help but watch and smile at a local dog (which we had seen at the same beach before) which was running the entire length of the beach too and fro – chasing a flying seagull! It was if they were playing a game together, for the gull, every now and again would land on the beach, allow the dog to almost reach it and would then start flying again, teasing the dog. This went on for about an hour, even as we left the beach, we left the dog chasing the gull. They really seemed like, in some way or another, they were connected…friends, well, that’s the conclusion I came to anyhow!!

What a Difference a Day Makes

Goodbye grey skies….hello blue!!!

Had a very chilled out day today, spent at Seal Rocks, there were some pretty amazing waves out there today and some pretty fine surfers too! Wish every day was like this! Enjoy!!

And the Waves Rolled In

Today, it has pretty much rained all day, which is OK with us, it’s given us even more time to relax.

This photo was just taken at Seal Rocks, the surf was amazing to watch, plenty of great surfing on some big waves. I kind of thought that the grey skies made this photo rather atmospheric.

Mini Road-trip

Today, we decided to go on a mini road-trip a couple hundred kilometres in all. We didn’t have a destination in mind, just thought we’d see where the road would take us.

We ended up in another National Park called Crowdy Bay, which was really lovely, lots of beautiful coastline.

Part of the National Park is a place called Diamond Head, which is another beach area. We went for a short walk, on a track that ended up at a viewing platform.

Upon our return, as we were walking along the track we had company! This female kangaroo and her joey decided to accompany us for quite a lot of the way. They actually dictated our speed as we didn’t want to startle them. We must have stayed with them for a good ten minutes. How lucky we’re we!!

Surfing Dolphins

Today has been such a relaxing day, spent mostly on the beach.

As I was preparing breakfast, my partner called me outside. High up in a tree was a goanna, which looked like he’d got himself stuck, well, maybe not stuck, but he was having a bit of a hard time deciding how he was going to get himself down! It turns out that whilst eating breakfast, we saw a couple of other goannas, this time safely on the ground. One got spooked by something and ran right towards a tree that was next to our tent, so that he could scurry up it, out of harms way. The only problem for the goanna was that we had propped a surfboard at the base of the tree and a bodyboard against the trunk, so the poor goanna ended trying to scramble across the surfboard, but he wasn’t going anywhere, because it was slippery! Eventually he managed to make his way up the tree. It was pretty funny, like a cartoon.

As we arrived on the beach (which is a 5 minute walk from our tent) I looked out at the ocean and straight away, the first thing I saw was a pod of dolphins surfing in the waves! They were so beautiful to watch. We were so lucky! especially as the beach goes on for as far as the eye can see and we were the only people there.

At the moment, as I write this, there are only a few other tents here, though I’m sure as Christmas day gets closer, it will inevitably get busier, so for now, we are going to enjoy the peace and quiet whilst we have it.

Day 262 Friday 16th December 2011



I wish more days were like this…

Today, I started my day on the Manly Ferry, which is where I took this photo, as I waited for the ferry to depart. Sitting on a ferry for half an hour as it sailed across Sydney Harbour was a good start to my day!
