Walking Squares #19 – The beach and shadows

Becky’s #WalkingSquares

This walk is going back a few years when on a holiday in Tasmania. What prompted me to do this post was a few days ago when I used my shadow photo.

I guess we better get down on the beach

The beach was quite a long one but the walk wasn’t all that far

The setting Sun on a warm October day

Every one liked my long legs so I thought I would have a friend join me and you can now have double the enjoyment. The setting sun is the best time to get that long leg feeling

Among the dunes, the Pig Face was flowering

The colourful rocks of the Bay of Fires. The red is a lichen that grows on the granite rocks

There was a Pacific Gull hanging out on the rocks

*”The Bay of Fires did not actually earn its name because of its appearance. It was named “Bay of Fires” in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux, who looked out and saw countless fires along the Tasmanian coast”

Walking Squares #7 – Walkway, beach and birds

Sunday Stills: #Paths and #Trails Take You to Happy Places

Today wasn’t a good walking day. I didn’t want to drive to walk somewhere and the gravel trucks have been trundling up and down all day. You wouldn’t believe the dust they throw up.

Therefore I want to take you on a bit of a walk along the track to the beach at Evans Head. Here’s your song so let’s go

Out of the car park down we go. On the top of the hind dune She-oaks and Banksias are growing

Sometimes the track goes up and over the next dune and a small stream

Once the vegetation starts to change you know you are getting close to the beach. The Pandanus are the dominant vegetation on thee front dunes and beach and they even grow on rocks.

And around the last bend, through some Pandanus and onto the sand

Sometimes the welcoming committee is large

and at other times, just a couple to greet you but someone will always be on the sand to greet you

PS I know lots of you have seen this little bloke. This is where he was put together with a Pandanus nut and some red kelp. I wonder how long he was sitting in the Paperbark tree before some one noticed. I hope he was treated kindly.

When the tide is low…..

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Low

….the crabs come out to forage and rebuild their nests. The rebuilding creates fabulous patterns on the sand.

Sand Crabs start preparing do dig in the sand

Try to arrange the sand balls as they like

Just dig and throw

The sand balls build up as they dig

and suddenly intricate patterns are created

Only to be washed away when the tide comes in

Soldier crabs march across the sand looking for a snack or two

Going on a treasure hunt

I love Our Moon

One of my favourite reflection photos

I don’t really have any Autumn leaves as I don’t really have Autumn here. These leaves are Autumn leaves in Lyon

Something I found on a walk on my place after the fires. First time I have ever seen Purple Fringe Lillies here.

It was fun going through my folders on this treasure hunt. A great idea Tina
