Coastal Village












Coastal villages have a charm all of their own. For some of us it had been over two years since we last visited Iluka, the village my in-laws had retired to and where we had frequently holidayed. 

The exercise park is a recent addition, the Iluka-Yamba Ferry a familiar sight, the little wooden boat on Iluka Bay an unexpected delight. We detoured via the Iluka Bluff beach and lookout on our way home. A very beautiful winter's day out with hardly another person to be seen!

What beautiful photos Karen, particularly the wooden rowing boat. It's ages since I went to Iluka, thanks for the inspiration to return.

I have been back to your photo of the little wooden boat on instagram so many times - just so drawn to it - it oozes calm!

I agree with everyone. The little boat is a top shot.

Beautifully there and certainly it was nice to visit the place where they lived in-laws and where you were on vacation. It was a time of memories. Wonder is the first picture. Regards.

Oh yes, don't they, tho?! So happy you were able to return and spend some time :) We have resident white pelicans all along the Missouri River in Montana! It is always funny to me to see a platoon of them flying low over the trees, out here in the middle of nowhere....no ocean for many many many miles! But they live here! Beautiful photos Karen!

O Karen, I would just love your winters I'm sure! The village you visited looks so pretty and delightful! And your first picture, wow, would be so pretty as a blow-up to put on the wall.
Have a lovely weekend,

Beautiful photo’s Karen. Iluka, a very special place.

I enjoyed all your coastal photos, Karen - so different from my land-locked landscape. I especially enjoyed the trio overlooking the spray on the bluff.

Linda said...

I wonder why the words coastal village are so appealing?

Your first photo of the canoe is beyond words fabulous!

Preeti said...

The colors in the canoe shot are amazing! What a beautiful day out for your family.
