We’re back from our annual pilgrimage to McCrae and as ever, I’m wonderfully restored by the salt water, sand and sun.
There was all the usual stuff – swimming, snorkelling, fishing, beach cricket – and a few extras.
A walk along the pier at Flinders and mussels in a laksa broth for lunch.
A hike from Cape Schanck lighthouse to Bushrangers Bay.
And while the sunsets looked spectacular, unfortunately they were courtesy of the bushfires…
Glad you had a restorative time Kate! I love the picture of the tunnel, it’s beautiful.
You often see Ti-tree tunnels leading to the beach (it grows well by the coast) but I think this was one of the longest tunnels I’ve seen.
the context for the sunset picture kind of takes the shine off it doesn’t it.
It was difficult to enjoy the break 100% knowing that so many people were in the middle of a disaster…
that’s understandable. I hear you finally have some rain??
Yes, although it often brings a new set of problems (landslides, poisoning of waterways from fire retardant run-off etc) – but no one complaining as fires are essentially out!
It’s going to be a very long and painful journey back to any kind of normality for the people whose lives have been so badly affected.
Looks like you had fun. Personally, I dislike the beach. I prefer to see the sea from a mountain top in a woods with a river that has a waterfall!
