Sunday Selections

 Long, long ago, in days of yore...Kim of Frog ponds Rock, (who no longer blogs), dreamed up a meme called Sunday Selections. 

A place where those who were willing could put up photos they wanted to share, new, old, good, bad or indifferent, any photos you please. 

Nothing rude or vulgar though.

The meme is now continued by Elephant's Child and I occasionally join in as do a few others. Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look.

Today I'm going to show you the place I love best, keep in mind these were NOT taken with my new camera. These are all the beach between Semaphore and Largs Bay jetties. I started at Semaphore, walked to largs Bay, then took these photos on the way back.










The "black and white" ones were taken in colour, but there were clouds around, a storm was brewing, so perhaps they reflected in the water. 
Fish and chips before going home, of course.

  1. There is nothing quite like an ocean view...I love it!!

    I hope the coming week treats you kindly, generously and with happiness, River. Cuddles to the lovely Lady Lola. :)

    1. Lee; if I could wake up to that view every day I would never ask for anything more. Lola is in one of her "don't touch me" moods, she has hayfever, so I'm letting her hide away in corners as much as she needs to.

  2. It is always lovely to see you join Sunday Selections again.
    Love these - and can almost smell the delicious sea air.

    1. Elephant's Child; the air is what I crave as much as the view. I breathe so much easier when there is a hint of salt in the air.

  3. That was one place I went to quite frequently when we lived in Adelaide (1990s). To walk along by the sea was a welcome relief to life north of Gepps Cross. When the grandchildren came to visit it was the sands at Semaphore and maybe (if they were open/running) a ride on the little train or the carousel. The adventure playground at St Kilda was another favourite.

    1. Cathy; the little train is still running during summer holidays and the carousel is still there, but not always open for business.

  4. That was a serious walk for beautiful pictures. Thank you.

    1. Joanne; it's a fun walk, the jetties are quite close together a gentle stroll about 35-40 minutes between them, flat if you are on the sand, undulating if you are on the walkway in the dunes.

  5. I am about 8 hours from the pacific ocean...I am looking at pacific or the indian ocean?

    1. Dora; neither, this is the Southern Ocean, underneath Australia. The Indian ocean is off Western Australia, between Australia and Africa. The Southern Ocean leads down to the Australian-Antarctic Basin. The Southern Ocean may not be officially named, it isn't in my Atlas, but that's what we all call it.

  7. I could never tire of photos of sea waves. Nice work.

    1. Andrew; I could never tire of it either, I recently told someone if I had a house with a balcony or deck overlooking the ocean, I would probably even sleep on that balcony or deck most of the year.

  8. The sea, always beautiful and thanks for sharing.

  9. The ocean! Something I don't see often. Something I probably won't see again. I've jogged along the beach in Daytona, Florida, and spent the night on a ferry on the Inside Passage in Alaska, and ridden to an island in a little metal fishing boat that held four people (also in Alaska). Your pictures are beautiful, but you can have my share of ocean!

    1. Val; I could see the ocean every day if I wanted to put in the effort. It's just a bus ride to the city, 15-20 minutes, then a train to the seaside suburbs, also 15-20 minutes.

  10. I could feel the spray, hear the roar and smell the air. The ocean has always had a calming and peaceful effect on me. Thank you for taking me along. Ahhh.

    1. Arkansas Patti; it is a very calming thing, the ocean. After I watch the waves for a few hours, I'm ready for anything. almost.

  11. Oh, the power of the water. It is irresistable.

    1. messymimi; it certainly is. I can never just sit or walk on the sand, I always have to get my feet wet and sometimes I just jump right in.

  12. Preciosas vistas del mar. Me encantaría poder estar ahora en su cercanía.

    Buen reportaje, lleno de belleza
