Being Wednesday and a beautiful one at that, it was the day for a photographic jaunt close to home. Yesterday whilst taking my dog for a walk on the beach, I met a lady with whom I chatted to briefly and lo and behold there she was today, as a new member of our photography group, she was my companion for the day and we had a fun day. I think this could be the beginning of a nice friendship as we have so much in common. Anyway, here are the pics of the day.

Yesterday, I had the great delight on traveling Australia's southern most road. I hadn't been to Cockle Creek for years and I had forgotten how beautiful the area is.
|D'entrecasteaux River en route to Cockle Creek.|
|The wildflowers are prolific at this time of year.|
|Where the river meets the sea.|
|The seagull take a drink of fresh water before it turns salty.|
|Little islets abound in this area.|
|The area looked like much the same as it would have looked when French explorer, Bruni D'Entrecasteaux sailed his two ships, the Recherche and Esperance, into the bay in 1792|
|Then we discovered man made items.|
|A collection of oars decorating the wall of a shack.|
|This shack had a certain charm, with is door opening right onto the beach.|
|The bridge over Cockle Creek|
|A statue of a whale graces the point, made my a sculptor named Stephen Walker.|
|A shack on the creek behind the skeleton trees.|
|Hidden in the bush was a shack with this sign on the wall.|
|A jetty opposite a shack with a trusty tinny tied up, awaiting the the owner to go and collect the cray pots. And here it is........|
