In the dunes that back the beach, it amazes me that anything can grow ~
No nutrients in the soil, and such good drainage no water will hold between the fine white grains of sand –
Yet, defying possibility, these coastal plants produce luscious yellow blooms.
Just their pollen rich blooms stand proud to catch the attention of passing pollinators 😉
Between the plants, signs of animal life leave their marks.
Not everyone is in hiding ~
Who goes there?
Not sure who is taken more by surprise ~ The wallabies or us!
Then, finally, through the bushy scrub between the trees the first glimpse of the sea.
There is possibly no more beautiful a sight than that first view through the she oaks
Once down onto the beach ~ I like a patch of shade from where I can look out to sea…
And wonder at the waves and the scale of the Pacific Ocean ~ Nothing lying between me and South America.
Where is your favourite beach?
