Early Morning Magic – Nine Mile Beach


early morning off the rocks nine mile

While I organised myself for the morning’s guest breakfasts Stephen and the boys headed down to the beach to watch the sun come up.

Stunning summer’s morning with clear blue skies.

The boys enjoyed hanging out on the rocks and trying their hand (paws) at fishing – or at least looking anyway.

Plenty of star fish out and lovely reflections in the rock pools.

Just a little sea mist hanging in the air but once the sun came up over the mountains……..

We’ll just let the photos tell the story.

    What an interesting and beautiful beach to explore. I like all the sea creatures – the star fish and whatever all those things covering the rocks are! You capture the waves and spray so well in your pics.

      Thanks Jane – Stephen was a little relunctant to head out so early – not an earlybird but I think it was worth it. The black you see are all mussels – the rocks are covered in them.
