I enjoy looking back through our vacations photos, brings it all back nice and fresh in my memory. Especially when I am finding it hard to get back into the swing of things, so I am happy to share some lovely seaside photos here today.
One of my favourite things to do is simply fossick along the shoreline for pretty shells, I remember doing this as a child, and now I am doing the same thing with my children, and it is wonderful.
Look at all these gorgeous teeny tiny little shells. Can you imagine a beach made entirely from billions of these tiny shells……… we visited one such beach and appropriately it is called Shell Beach. It is apparently one of only two beaches like this in the World. Amazing……
Bright blue sky, crisp white shells, and the clear sea water………. was spectacular indeed.
From here we headed further along the coast and found some pretty impressive beaches and very nice weather, after leaving grey stormy days it was a bit of a surprise to the senses to be in such warm weather. There was lots of slip, slop, slap, sunsmart practice happening this week.
We spent some lovely days here on this beach, and seen some very friendly sealife doing their own thing as they desired. This is Monkey Mia, located within the Shark Bay World Heritage Area in Western Australia.
This is Mr Pelican, who was paddling along the waters edge. We stopped and said hi and then went on our way. The water is absolutely beautiful, crystal clear, turquoise blues, very enticing.
Oh the joy I felt when this dolphin swam past as we were wading along, we were so lucky this day as the dolphins were doing their natural thing, had spotted some yummy looking fish and were hunting them along the shoreline, so they came close to us, we simply had to stand still and let them do their thing and take lots of photos of course. Some lucky swimmers had them swimming around them, you could see the delight on the young swimmers face, reflected in my own as they swam past me I am sure. Most of the day you see them here and there off in the distance, but to see them come in this close was wonderful indeed. Oh I absolutely adore dolphins, they are simply beautiful.
This is the nearby town of Denham, we would stroll along the beachfront every day to enjoy the sights, and I must say I took a lot of dinghy photos, but I do like them, looking very relaxed resting on the beaches. We would spend our evenings relaxing on the beaches ourselves, with our picnic tea, how easily I could go back there right now, it was very enjoyable. We seen so many lovely sights, and most of all I enjoyed spending time with my loved ones, hopefully making many happy memories for our little ones. They do talk about our vacation, the many exciting sights we seen, the activities we filled our spare time with, and I like to think that even though they are young, they will remember this for years to come.
And now I am off to make a cup of tea, before I have a few chores to do then hopefully I might be able to do a few rows of knitting whilst dreaming more about our vacation days.
