Avoca Beach, Central Coast, NSW Australia
I’m so lucky to call this place home. Australia is such a beautiful country with such a stunning coastline – a varied one at that. In my local area, there are calm gentle bays and beautiful long surf beaches, where the waves roll in all day long.
I never ever take it for granted where we live.
This morning I woke up at 3am! Yes, you heard me right…3am on a Saturday! Too many things on my mind.
I decided to walk to my local beach to watch the sunrise and it was beautiful.
Avoca Beach is so incredibly beautiful and I must say, I have missed witnessing the sun rise over the ocean.
I was very tempted to put one of the sunrise shots up, but as there weren’t many clouds (not that I’m complaining about that….after all the rain we’ve had of late, a clear blue sky is welcome in my day, any day!), the sunrise wasn’t as atmospheric as I had hoped and I actually rather like this capture, of 3 surfers off for their morning surf. Felt rather envious of them actually.
My Perfect End to a Day
I had such a full on day at work today, but thankfully my commute home only took just over an hour, which meant that I was able to get to my local beach, before it got dark.
The waves today were incredible and there was some amazing surfing going on, mostly by little boys who only looked about 8 years old, yet there they were…out there in the big surf, full of confidence and enthusiasm and they showed no fear.
Not only was the water breath taking to look at, but so was their surfing. For the first time today, I felt alive! That is the power the ocean has over me, I really mean that.

After along day filled with facts and information and what felt like an even longer journey I home, it was nice to see these flowers coming to life in the garden. I am not sure what they are, I think they may belong to the onion family as that is what they smell of.
