What do you do when it’s low to mid-30s day after day after day? You go to the beach!

Our choice of beach this past weekend was Surf Beach on the south coast of Phillip Island – an easy 90 minute drive from Melbourne. We had a fantastic southerly coming in off the Southern Ocean that brought the temperature down just the right amount. There weren’t many people there and as you can see, the water was amazing! Shallow and warm – perfect for a family day at the beach.

This is one of the reasons I love Australia.

I was talking to someone else who’d also been to the Remarkable Rocks and apparently we were luckier than they were. They visited the site at the same time as a bus load of tourists and the place was over-run with people. I guess I should count myself lucky that we barely had to share the rocks with anyone.

Continuing from yesterday, here’s a different perspective on the Remarkable Rocks found on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. This was our last stop of the day as the sun was setting. Thankfully the crowd cleared out for us before sunset so we had the place mostly to ourselves. Well, mostly. There was this one couple who were really difficult to avoid catching in my images. They kept circling the rocks with her posing and him shooting. They rarely stayed still long enough for me to grab a shot without them in it. Luckily, with a little patience I managed to get a few without them.
