The Calm in the Storm – a walk on Nine Mile Beach

After a night of heavy rain and rain and drizzle on and off for most of the morning yesterday, it was great to see clearing skies and sunshine late afternoon.

There was no encouragement needed to head down to the beach for a good leg stretch.

They say what a difference a day makes and for this walk it was more like a difference a couple of hours makes – turned out stunning.

The beach had changed dramatically from our walk just two days earlier.  The power of the surging surf moving all the stones and sand. Nico and I enjoyed just sitting and watching the waves roll in – Ziggy was busy doing other things, look closely and you’ll see him – well part of him.

It was so nice to get out in the sunshine and it’s hard to beat a simple walk on the beach.

The boss Nine Mile beach

Had to include this one – “the boss” says Stephen – and he put it on social media so it’s official – just thought I’d spread the word further lol

    I love the density of light on the coast as the winter months approach. As these photos so aptly show, it’s a beautiful kind of moodiness. Try as I might, I can’t see Nico.


  2. the beach looks really nice and the rocks are quite impressive
