Marvellous Monday




A stunning winter's day here in my part of the world. My brother and his family from interstate are currently holidaying at a nearby beach village. Today we had a delightful time with them at this beach location. The holiday house they are renting overlooks the ocean. Just a short stroll across a quiet road and you are on the shoreline.




Sandy beaches with shells and also lots of rugged rocks which beckoned all to explore and collect.
















A nephew in quiet contemplation


Humpback whale - there are many around the area now




Still feeling sunny from a magnificent Monday!

More starfish photos from yesterday here.
