Life’s a Beach

I know I have my favourites but how do you judge a beach? The colour of the sand or the softness underfoot?

The angle short and steep like some in the south west or the barely sloping in the north west like 80 Mile beach and Barn Hill where the tide goes out forever. Tiny hidden coves or great sweeping arcs, powdery soft dunes or iron rich red cliffs. Blinding white silica sand like Whitehaven in the Great Barrier Reef or a perfect curving arc like Apollo Bay in the south.

  1. I love a good walking beach. Firm sand, and very little slope. Cable Beach, 80 mile beach, Lucky Bay in Cape le Grand National Park, and our very own Geographe Bay – all gorgeous. Happy New Year by the way.


      1. Yes Barn Hill has some amazing rock formations. I also love Cape Keraudren near Pardoo. The rock pools there at low tide hold all sorts of wonderful creatures.


  2. Ah, nothing beats a beach, in any weather, summer or winter. Happy new year to you and may 2019 be filled with good health and wonderful destinations. 🙂


      1. Yep, I’m on my way home now (on the train). Another two weeks of temporary splint but more exercises now as well so getting there slowly.
