clean clear sea air

A whole week has passed me by, I have been working on an assignment, reading, typing, more reading. Yesterday I managed to finish it and escape to the beach!
It was lovely walking on the sand, the sound of the waves, the salty sea air, people fishing, people walking their dogs. An elderly couple with a rug and a picnic basket.








No books, no cell phone, no computer.....just me, my man and my camera.

Love walking on the beach in winter in NZ. Doesn't get cold enough here in Brisbane for the same feeling.Great shots of a Kiwi beach.

Yes, I think I smell the salt sea air......I see the black sand....is it Foxton...or Himitangi or some other beach of my childhood?

How wonderful to live so close to the beach and then for it to be such a beautiful one! I am very envious (living as I do on the edge of the desert)...

I forgot to say - what magic photos!

AMAZING photos! I can smell the salt spray and feel the sand between my toes! Wish I was there.

I have only just found your blog - is this Foxton Beach or Himitangi? Made me very homesick and thanks for the wonderful sounds - Dale
