Beach Treasures

If you want to see some lovely photographs of Australian Beach Treasures, have a look at them on ABC Science – they are simply wonderful!

I took this shot of the jellyfish last month, when visiting Beachport, along the Limestone Coast. 

I must go down to the sea again…..as John Mansfield writes:

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way, where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

    • Oh if only! No Binjy, I didn’t enter the comp. But thanks anyway. I guess you’re a bit too far from the beach too 🙂

      • 🙂 just a bit! I do have some nice shots, though – didn’t realise the comp. was even there . I am still enjoying your blog, even tho I don’t comment -sorry.

      • No need to apologize, it’s just great to have you along for the ride 🙂 Check out Steve Parish, for a place to put some of your work.
