Oh I do love to be beside the seaside.....!

Driving down the coast road yesterday on the way to the Melbourne Cup lunch at the Trigg Island Cafe,  I was mesmerized by the colour of the sky and sea, I stopped to take this shot (making me late again) just before I reached Trigg beach which is described by surfers and body boarders this way... 'A good day surfing at Trigg Beach will leave you smiling.  A bad day could leave you severely dumped, sucked into the notorious Blue Hole, or swept out to sea by a coastal rip' (surfing etiquette) this link did make me smile, 'the rules of surfing', yes even out there where on top of all the above mentioned dangers there is the possibility of becoming a shark 'snack' there are rules, well there has to be, those surf boards are very pointy. Hopefully you'll agree this shot was worth being late for lunch.....!!

    Thanks for the kind comments about Susie's blog. She is a great kid. I'm glad she is making the time to exercise her creative side through photography.

  18. Tes photos et tes commentaires m'amusent, Gracie. On te sent revivre, avec les beaux jours! Plus tes jours deviennent bleus, plus les miens tombent dans le gris. Eh oui, quand je me penche, je te vois de l'autre côté de la terre... :-) Ici, ce matin, le ciel et la mer sont gris foncé et il tombe quelques gouttes... Bonne journée à toi! Profite bien!

  21. Right now I can only dream to be beside the seaside, at least to swim and sunbathe! I dream of beach vacations in Greece, but a storm is coming, in more ways than one!

  25. for sure. what a beautiful landscape fills your eyes each day on your way to work. how wonderful that you continue to 'see' it and appreciate it.

  26. The photo makes me yearn for the sea (sharks or no sharks, I'd be careful!); love to watch surfers!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It doesnt look real! Would love a dress that color. Happy days to come!

  28. I no longer swim in the seas around Florida, but this is certainly a glorious spot and I'd love to spend some time there just taking photographs. Of sharks! Sometimes along our Atlantic coast you can actually see sharks swimming in the shallows. Fantastic colors here!

  29. This is gorgeous Mum! The colours are amazing, our coastline is so very beautiful! I love when you can see such an amazing variety of shades in the water.

    Surfboard competitions have been held this week at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, despite the sighting of a large shark in the waters on opening day.

  37. I agree... Great shot for a deep feeling. I like almost everything by the sea, apart overcrowded beaches in summer.
