Between the flags


What a difference a day makes. Bright sunshine, clear sky, still quite chilly but in an invigorating and optimistic way. In answer to Julia's question, yesterday's swell was not really that high at all, and the ocean can get much rougher than that here. I should also point out that this little beach is not visited by many surfers because the surf here is considered to be quite tame. The beaches to the north and south of us are surfing destinations, and I might wander down there next week and take some photos of them as well.

Here is a close-up of the bright blue of the ocean, for Beth, with love.

The water is actually at its warmest now, it felt really good on my feet...but that's as far as I got.

Oh, Eleanor, I love that shot of the water rolling in!
Exactly what I needed at the end of 13 hours of covering swine flu.

All your photos this week have been beautiful, but I think these are my favourites!

A beautiful blue! And isn't it cool how much there is to talk about just from one spot on the beach? Thank you for this week of pictures, it has been so fun.

PS, I'd love to see more waves. I can't believe that yesterday was calm!

Ocean. Sigh. Thanks for the week.
