Well what a treat this Sunday was. I needed no incentive to get out and take some photographs with the weather much better with intermittent sun and no breeze at all. It was still quite mild and so I set off to the beach. I had heard recently about a "Pillbox" that was constructed for WW2 built for the coastal reserve, I have walked this part of the coast quite a bit and had never come across it so I set off with the intention of finding it. Once at the carpark I knew there was something going on. The beach is around a 20 minute walk from the carpark and as there are many points along the coast where you can park less than 2 minutes from the beach it is unusual for this point to be very busy, but today it was. I know that could only mean one thing "SURFERS". When the surf is good this beach becomes popular with surfers but because of the walk not quite so crowded as the other main local surf points, "Rest Bay" and "Sandy Bay" that both have parking alongside the beach.

When I got to the beach the waves were great considering there really was very little breeze it was quite surprising. The sea temperature here is still reasonable in November as it seems to lag the air temperature by a couple of months, still too cold for me to get in the water, but good for these hardy folks.

So I stayed for a while, too long I think, that meant my initial search was put off for another day but still I got some decent photographs.

Thank you Adrian, not really my type of images normally but I did enjoy the few hours there.
