Ha! I went to the beach.

We set off to the beach Saturday.
Green Beach which is in the north over looking Bass Strait.  It was rather quite for a Saturday and only spotted a couple in the water which was surprising.  Plenty of golfers playing their golf.
We stopped for lunch at the Greens Beach shop, and whilst walking back to the vehicle I tripped on a stick which in turn somehow got underneath my foot inside my shoe and cut my foot.  It's now healed thank goodness.

It's been a few years since being at this beach, and I was rather surprised to find the same shed still standing, it's where we used to get changed into/out of our bathers and sit out of the sun when I was a late teenager.

These days many people live permanently at this small place, and travel to Launceston each day to work.  Of course there are lots of shacks as well. It's hilly so just about everyone gets a good view of the sea. 

This is the building, men on one side and women the other.  Can't say I like the colour.

Looking to the north west.
Me of course. The sea was warm as it usually is at the edge.


I made a frame for this photo.

  1. The sea looks beautifully calm - glad that you did not suffer any bad consequences as a result of tripping on the stick.

    1. Was lovely a calm, we chose a good day to visit. Could have been nasty with the stick but, so I was indeed lucky.

    1. Oh Jo-Anne, we are not far from a beach, but it's like that in Tasmania.
      Thanks re my header, I had fun making it this year and decided of 'blue' for a change to red and gold or green.

  7. You heal quickly. Must be the seawater. The beach looks lovely and the water not too rough. Yes, the shed could really do with a coat of paint, and a nice colour at that.

    1. Yes, I did heal quickly and it must have been the salt water because I headed for it as soon as my foot was cut. They say the ocean is the best for many things.
