We're back and .....

.... you'll be happy to know that the scenes from my last posting were still there - plus another 280 new ones! Ok, ok, I promise not to post them all...lol. Just a few occasionally.
The weather was mixed - fine and raining, windy and calm, sunny and cloudy - what more could a photographer ask for?
Thank you, too, for the good wishes from so very many friends. Who else but a blogger would receive all those holiday wishes from across the world? Thank you dear friends - I hope you are all well, and enjoying life wherever you are.
You can just see this bridge on the left side of the 4th photo in the last posting. Here you can see the bridge as it spans the Clyde River. The centre of the bridge can be opened to allow tall-masted boats to pass through.

Where the Clyde River and the Pacific Ocean meet at Batemans Bay, on the South Coast of New South Wales.

Tanya - this one's for you.

Seagulls and pelicans waiting for dinner.

Later on the same day beside the Moruya River, about 20klm further south....

.... same river, same time, other direction. What a difference clouds can make.

Around the cliffs at Mossy Point.

You can see why Osteospermum are now regarded as an environmental weed.







More to follow ....

I have just one pervading thought...I want to walk on that coastline!
It's gorgeous Alice. Your pictures have captured the color of the sea wonderfully well.
I'm homesick in the worst way!
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos.
I do remember the osteospermum growing by the beach now. I had forgotten. Gorgeous..invasive weed or not.
I hope you had a lovely, relaxing holiday.
