We went to the beach late in the day and …

it was full of seaweed: 

A pool where I frolicked as a country kid on annual holidays to the beach: 

This is Dee Why beach, one of the northern beaches of Sydney.  Every year for many years our family would holiday here – it was nice to sit here in the late afternoon and reflect on those times.

  1. I just love the shape of the coastline. Great photos.
    My sister and I used to balance on the rocks and study the tidepools. The rocks are slimy and slippery. Ahh, good times. Sand on the feet. πŸ˜‰

  2. Treasured memories, Emjay. Mine were at Rainbow Bay on the Gold Coast. I guess we only now appreciate how fortunate we were.I like the idea of an alien spacecraft. Maybe they were trying to contact the astrodeeb do you think?

  3. Very beautiful and peaceful-looking place. I'm always comforted by water. I don't have any big water near to me, so to see it also takes me out of my everyday life. Being next to water is always a holiday for me. πŸ™‚ It's cold here. When I need a dash of summer, I should visit your blog more often. You always have the best pics!

  4. Funny you should mention the seaweed. I went to my favourite beach last week. We have been going there for almost 20 years and this is the first time I have seen the sand covered in seaweed.

  5. sorry but I am so jealous of where you are here I am up here in the snow freezing my ass off and your down under in the sun near the surf….. I want to crawl through my computer screen and lay around in the heat… because I have lost a few days here from sleeping for some reason I have sleep several full days and have lost a lot of time that I should be cleaning up for Christmas!Sounds like your have a great time and thanks as always for the chance to enjoy photos from where you have been!

  6. Thank you Emmi. We walked around the coastline to the cliffs and did stare into rock pools. πŸ™‚ The rocks were not slippery though so the tide must have been down for long enough for them to dry off. Sand between the toes is lovely.

  7. And there was a gorgeous gentle breeze blowing in off the ocean ….. there was a band playing on a grassy area too – wonderful as the sun went down to the strains of a slow rendition of You are My Sunshine. πŸ™‚

  8. Now I often think back to how difficult it must have been for my parents to give us an annual trip to the beach – especially from the financial side; we were not wealthy farmers. They gave us many wonderful experiences and memories on our trips to Sydney.Now I wish we had walked in the direction of that alien thing…..

  9. LOL – poor DC has never handled snow very well. I am glad that I was not there – a winter without snow or ice would be a good winter to me. I'm glad your son got out before the storm closed things down.

  10. Thank you Scorpion. I am lucky to be in Australia at a time so many of you in the US are feeling so cold. Mind you, even in winter Sydney does not get that cold. Water does wonders in relaxing our minds.
