I'm enjoying the last few days down the south coast on the beach, savouring the ocean breeze and salt water. Soon we'll be heading off for the long drive home to the mountains. Lou and I, and sometimes Bubs, have been getting up at dawn to watch the sunrise over the ocean, then going on our morning walks being greeted by warm smiles and hello from other early risers on the beach.
Yesterday afternoon we went on a walk. The weather was beautiful and the clouds were like puffs of cotton floating above us.
The tide was high so it wasn't safe to walk around the rocks to get to the other beach. So we jumped off the rocks instead, seeing who could jump the highest and furthest. We then wandered back to the beach house, saving the odd cicada that survived being washed up on the beach before the seagulls could devour them.
