Last Sunday hubby and I ventured down the coast about an hour from where we live to a place called Kilcunda which is just past Phillip Island. In particular we were looking for a fishing beach where hubby could practice casting with his new fishing rod. This is in preparation for an upcoming fishing trip at the end of March with my brother in Western Australia. We ended up at a beach called Cemetery Beach and yes, there is a cemetery nearby.
The day was perfect, sunny, warm and not too much wind. The tide was on the way out so while hubby had fun with his fishing rod, I had a magical time exploring rock pools, different types of seaweed, patterns in the sand and even some little creatures which might be sea anemone. I took many photos so I warn you, this post is photo heavy.
|The walking track to the beach.|
|There were some little birds in the trees, there is one in the top centre of the photo. Unfortunately I can't tell what sort of bird it is.|
|Trees and undergrowth along side the beach track.|
|Walking up the sand dune.|
|The moment when you know you are a few steps away from seeing the sea.|
|A few brave souls trying to catch a wave.|
|Hubby in action.|
|These two photos look like big hand prints. In reality it was just the sea water draining out of the sand causing patterns.|
Some interesting rock formations gouged out by the sea.
|This one looks like a fat frog or toad to me.|
Different types of seaweed and other interesting things.
|I loved the contrast of the bright green weed against the dark shells.|
|These creatures were in quite shallow water and wondered what they were. Can anyone enlighten me?|
