My holidays: Part 2
Whilst I was away my two brothers and I went to the seaside. My American brother (Nick) lives in the middle of the USA and doesn't see the sea very often so he requested a trip to the beach so we went to Victor Harbour (a popular summer destination). We had a great day stopping off at different beaches, taking lots of photos of waves and birds, going for a few short walks and eating fish and chips for lunch. You are probably thinking that we had our lunch on the beach watching the waves. Well . . . no . . . the sand was wet and we didn't have a blanket . . . and I didn't want to get a damp bottom! Unable to find a nice park bench, we ate our lunch in the car near the beach. We decided that we had reached "that" age where eating in the car is acceptable.
Below are a few photos of our walk to Granite Island (where 700 fairy penguins live . . not that we saw any during the day), it is connected to the mainland by this bridge. It took about 10mins to walk across the bridge - we walked very quickly as we only had 45 mins to walk over, have a look around and walk back before the car parking metre ran out!!! Nothing wrong with a brisk walk after lunch in the sea air:)
In one direction the sky was blue, in the other direction is was overcast and cloudy. Even though it was winter, it wasn't very cold or windy, in fact really nice.
I think the clouds add character to any photo.
This is a beautiful Clydesdale horse pulling a train. I am never sure if animals like doing this sort of job, I know the Clydesdale was bred for work but he didn't look happy (can you tell if a horse is happy?). They only make 3 trips per horse per day so maybe that is ok. Below is his friend.
On the other side of Victor Harbour is a hill called The Bluff. After eating 3 hot cinnamon sugar donuts, Nick thought it was a good idea that I walked "quickly" up the hill. The view was worth the effort.
I took lots of photos of the waves crashing onto the beach - I won't bore you with all of them, just this one.
