A Splash of Solitude

For Solitude I heartily agree
With Jen Hooks: nothing better than the sea
(Particularly if that sea you reach
By private access leading to the beach);
On her example I will also lean
By having little girl to set the scene;
It just so happens, only yesterday,
On way from school we stopped off there to play.

    Beautiful photos, I can almost feel the warm sand between my feet, Enjoy!


  3. Those photographs could just as well be marked as Western Australia, there are many beach’s in the west that appear just like these, especially the centre pic.

      This surprised me, because I have always thought that the western parts were pretty arid. Looking up some pictures, they are anything but! Real beauty spots, vast natural reserves, and super beaches.

      • Western Australia has a few thousand kilometres of amazing shoreline. Superb beaches; and breath taking up in the Kimberley. Many South Africans when they decided it was time to move found themselves quite at home in the west, including Roger Holmes a’Court, who became Australia’s richest man, for a while, and his family are still in the West, very successful and excessively wealthy, which they probably find a comfort. 🙂

    The grand-kids are very fortunate to have you so close, Mister N. And I am pretty sure the feeling is mutual!
    Smashing photo set.


  7. Did you climb the tree too?
    To get a better view?
