February 2010 - Construction

Seven years later, construction on the coast continues unabated - growth forecasts are almost insane - it will not be the same place a decade from now.

This weird yellow light was to be my skywatch photo for Friday, but, well I just got my days a bit muddled this week!  Strangely the sun looks very high in the sky going by the reflection on the cloud, but as can be seen from the depth of shadow in the background, it was in reality almost beyond the horizon, hence the strange illumination.

January 2010 - the first towel of summer.

Nothing says "summer is here" than seeing your first towel hanging over a rail.

When we were kids, we'd escape along the beach for hours, crawling among the rocks or building huge canals through the wet sand.  We didn't have watches to tell the time, so Mum used to hang a towel out the window as a signal that it was lunch time.

I suspect this Mum probably sent an SMS, or maybe a Tweet, but the signal brought back memories.

December 2009 - Some things never change.

After four months in some of the world's most cycle-friendly countries, it's come as a shock to be back home where bicycle safety means a pole with a sign on it!

As the wagons circle, one wonders just what one is supposed to do with one's bike.  Stand by the post to lessen the impact perhaps?  Or is this the stake where cyclists, once captured are tied as punishment for their transgressions?

November 2009 - Uncertainty

I share his pain though - 18 months of blog reviewed and I'm still buzzing with ideas and no firm thoughts as to which direction it should head... oh well back to the review!

I'm not sure why this surfer appears so concerned.

Perhaps it was the oyster clad rocks behind him and the thought of what the oncoming wave ahead might do.

October 2009 - the Coast.

I used this shot as the background image for this blog for many years, to me it typifies a lot of what the coast is; clean deserted beaches.  Make the most of them while we can - the crowds are coming.

For the geographically challenged, if the ocean is on your left, you are looking south. If further description is necessary: I took this shot on the beach!

September 2009 - Sunset

Pressures of life such as those that have given rise to this current lack of new photographs have meant that I haven't spent a lot of time walking on the beach at sunset for a time.   That will have to change!

They reckon sunset is one of the best times for fishing.

I'm not sure whether he caught anything, but I'd have to agree with the sentiment.

August 2009 - Bike Paths

Having tried three times to repost this post, I wonder if there's a great conspiracy in the sky, to ensure that they who ride bikes and they who design the paths are never destined to meet.

If you made it through yesterday, the last great challenge awaits. Now the trick is to go THROUGH the power pole, since clearly there's no room either side.

Happy Trails!
