Sunday Selections # 246
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week we are back at the beach.
The photos follow a similar theme to last week, so there may or may not be commentary.
the jetty from a distance
the beginning of the jetty, in the foreground the posts indicate one of the walkways through the dunes to the beach. Watch out for snakes!
one of many differing types of vegetation on the dunes
this is the flower, I know this as pigface, but I'm sure it has other names.
the first thing I saw when I stepped onto the sand. Absolutely no idea what it is or was (*~*)
these houses are unique, being the only original three-storey Victorian Terrace Houses on the Australian sea-front. More on these next week.
plenty of big rubbish bins along the foreshore; these are 44 gallon drums, attached in such a way they can be tilted for ease of emptying.
this one is for Jayne, who loves chimneys. they are on the terrace houses in the above picture.
I don't think I've ever seen a shell as yellow as this inside.
if this was for sale and I had the money......
the side view.
more of the vegetation, it reminds me of lavender, the leaves are very soft.
here's that dolphin shaped break in the clouds again.
sand, sea and sky
bright yellow gazania and little fluffy white things
a lizard, fairly well camouflaged, if you weren't looking, you probably wouldn't notice him.
he watched me pretty closely,
clinging tightly to his branch.
one of my favourite photos.
