Nice low tides this morning so we headed just down the road to walk the Rapahoe beach for a change in scenery.
So spoilt for choice – a beach at our doorstep yet we drive for two miles to do another!
Rapahoe beach is quite different to ours though even though it is only 2 miles away. Our beach is really stoney whereas the beach at Rapahoe is often much more sandy. The boys love it – they get to run, run, run with the sand under their toes. Must feel much nicer than bounding along on the stones.
Reasonably long beach walk – about 2kms each way. We take the southern end option, heading towards Point Elizabeth. Often if the tides are working right you can walk around to the seal colony. Not today though – low tide but not extreme.
Spectacular skies – quite overcast although really mild but makes for some moody skies.
Stephen took advantage of the moody skies and did some photography in black and white. Hope you like them as much as we enjoyed our walk.
