I love the beach....in autumn. Not in summer. I put up with beach for the cool sea water in Summer-the glare, need for heavy sun cream (and the sand sticking to every part of me that I just applied the sun cream to)...I find it uncomfortable.
But on days like yesterday, showery, billowing clouds and fleeting rainbows, brisk breezes...mmmm, lovely.
My kids and I loved looking at the little blue crabs rising up out of the muddy sand and creeping towards the pier...
The colours as the sun sank over the horizon were gorgeous.
And being under the pier with the slightly gloomy tangy smelling water lapping over my toes as I snapped this was a real treat.
I have to remind myself to go beach more often...now that pesky summers done. (Not much of Queenslander am I?)
*beach girl-in season now.
