ooh hard to beat a walk on the beach with the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky
yes this is winter on the West Coast and it is beautiful!
We’ve ventured just down the road to the 8 mile beach. So lucky here on the West Coast – nearly 500kms of coastline so plenty of beaches to choose from. For us we don’t need to venture too far from home to get to a completely different beach – well different looking anyway.
It’s been a while since we’ve visited the 8 mile beach and it is so completely different to the last time we were here. There were so big storms creating big seas throughout June and you can really see with the scouring into the vegetation and cliff behind us.
As always the boys are happy to be wandering the beach line and they always love heading out onto the rocks – be it here at the 8 mile or at home at 9 mile.
Ziggy does his usual “fishing” in the rock pools and Nico is happy just plodding along with Mum.
With a final pose with the boss amongst the rocks and the velvet green moss it is time to head back home and have a lie in the sunshine – well for the four-legged amongst anyway…..
