Seas the Day
I happen to believe Australia has some of the best beaches in the world but I’m partial to a beach anywhere!
Winter in Australia is a real mix – some places get snow (like where I live in the NSW Snowy Mountains) and Queensland gets slightly less humid with warm sunshine. Although as I said in a recent post The Gift of Sunshine, those up north thought it was quite cool at 21 degrees! But it’s all relative.
We’ve just returned from a road trip to Queensland, staying with family, and the weather was amazing – warm and sunny for the whole time. Now that I’m home it’s back to being properly cold with temperatures rarely getting into double digits – but that’s July where I live!
I could moan and groan about it, and sometimes I do, or I can smile and say ‘it’s invigorating’ and ‘you know you’re alive’, and embrace the need to dress in multiple layers. I do enjoy the cold weather but also appreciate the three weeks we spent up north dressed in t-shirts and shorts.
Many people, mainly grey nomads or retirees, take the opportunity to head north in their caravans and campers, at this time of the year for a few months to escape the cold, and I can see their point. We aren’t at that stage of life just yet but I do like going to the beach at any time of the year. Whatever works for you!
Some of my favourite beach photos
I love the way in Australia that the water, sand and bush meet – sometimes simply running into each other.
My favourite beaches are probably on the NSW South Coast, in Jervis Bay, where I grew up and holidayed with my family for many years. My own children have continued to enjoy visits to these beaches and we have spent many Christmas holidays on these sandy shores. So many memories created.
The sand is white and the beaches long and relatively empty compared to the famous beaches like Bondi in Sydney.
I’m breaking up with you. I think it’s time I started seeing other seasons. Summer is hotter than you.Internet search
It seems I’ve always been a bit of a beach babe! This is me as a child relaxing at the beach, at one of the already featured beaches in previous photos 🙂
I don’t know what it is about the beach but it definitely has a pull, it’s beautiful, it has strength, there’s a certain serenity in watching the waves and listening to the beat of the water. I now live in the mountains about 5 hours drive from the nearest beach, and don’t think I’d like to live at the beach, but it’s always mesmerising to me.
How about you, are you a beach person?
