Island Visit

As we explored the beach on Christmas morning, we wandered further and further along the sand until we came to a solid little island with the tide partially reaching around it when waves came in. These are the last of the beach photos from Christmas morning. South coast beach near Brighton, Dunedin, New Zealand.

The rest of the pics all taken by me.

The island.

Rhythmic repetition of the waves …

Our view as the distance closed between us and the island.

Very distant view of the island, and a streak of golden sand at the base of the dunes. Such a beautiful long beach to walk on.

    1. We had a bad spell of weather as soon as we arrived back home from Dunedin – cold, hail, thunder and heavy rain; we just managed to get our stuff back inside the house and the dark clouds let loose. It was anything but summery. Yesterday was really nice, today looks like a good one. Hope your atrocious weather moves on soon!


            1. Yikes! Definitely not … you poor things, I *hate* the cold so I’ve huge sympathy for you. I think I have some nice hot flower pics hanging around that I can post soon. They’ll be good for lifting the spirits even if I can’t do anything else to help 🙂


  1. Oh, wow, that is so lovely! I’m right there in my imagination, walking barefoot along the edge of the waves, getting my feet wet and feeling the sand run between my toes! Bliss! (I may have to revisit this post whenever it gets to grey and rainy here! 🙂
