Walking the beach near the Gorge



This morning we had to take the freeze branding stuff back to Yankalilla and so we went on for an early morning walk to the sandy beach near the Gorge. We hadnt been there for a while and couldnt get over how the usually lovely sandy beach was full of pebbles as you can see in the top photo. There is a lovely view down towards Rapid Head and I took photos while I walked and gathered a few shells, I was bemoaning the fact that I have always found at least one cowrie on this beach when I finally found one, and only one. It is quite an interesting bit of the coast, a lot of mica in the rocks, we gathered a tiny bit.
It has been a bit cooler today so John decided to bring in my mothers old frig, but where to put it as we dont at this stage want to take the old one out. That meant another bout of total re organisation which left us both feeling hot dirty and tired.
An old pony friend came to visit and she and the friend she had with her have decided to buy one of the foals, so that is one down and a whole heap left to go. It was lovely to see them.

These are lovely photos and also the ones on the previous post.You certainly live in a beautiful environment. What a scorcher it's been! A bit better yesterday and today though.

Interesting the patterns made by the pebbles on the beach.
