Thursday Thirteen - 152nd Edition

Thirteen things about Eaton


I have always loved the sea and everything that goes with it, except the sunburns…ouch! I also must admit to a fear of sharks, but even that pales into insignificance with the possibility of getting into the water.

I especially love the way the way the ebb and flow of the water seems to wash through my mind and body when I am watching it. The peace and calm that pervades my soul even in the midst of rough seas or a storm is amazing, nature at its remarkable and beautiful essence.

I have collected photos of the sea from the Great Australian Bite in Adelaide South Australia, Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne.

I hope you enjoy a little of the peace and beauty the sea has to offer, while looking at these photos.

Happy TT! :)

Sorrento, one of Melbourne's most popular beach resorts, Mornington Peninsula.

The beginnings of a storm, Brighton beach Melbourne.

Glenelg beach is Adelaide's most popular beach resort, and part of the magnificent St. Vincent's Gulf. During winter great, wild storms happen here because it is all open sea.

  1. Oh! Beautiful! I want to come for a visit!

  2. There is something wonderfully soothing that comes only from nature. I felt it three moments before I got ding-dang burnt.

    It's difficult to describe in words.

    A mite less difficult via photos.

    But I think you captured it here. I can almost hear the waves.

    And I'm stumbling over the sand like I'm drunk...

  3. I agree! Very beautiful pic´s! I´m totally jealous that you have these beaches at your "door step" (so to speak). Living in a country with no ocean access, we go to Brasil in the summer season, to get our share of salt water....
    Thanks for visiting my TT!

  4. Amazing pics, Byz! I really hope I get to visit some day - it would be beyond awesome to give you a *real* hug and take in all this beauty with my own eyes!
