dock life, fishing boats…

Port of Portland’s pier had a fishing boat unlike any I’ve seen before. Festooned with large glass lamps, they clearly have a need to see what they’re doing out at sea 🙂 I’d love to know why.

At sunset there were still plenty of people fishing off the pier. I smiled when I noticed they all ignored the signs saying not to park cars on the concrete.

a tiny, doomed miracle…

Today at the Great Ocean Road’s Johanna Beach it turned out someone’s pretty beach decoration was in fact a precious circle made by caring hearts to help protect two tiny eggs laid out in the open by a little bird that’s understandably rare, considering. After I walked away we were lucky enough to see a member of Victoria’s precarious hooded plover population hot foot it back to its ‘nest’ which was anything but that, just a small indentation in the sand. Go well courageous soul.

Fishing with dad, only a few old timers out fishing, and it didn’t happen if there’s no photo.

low tide at Liptrap…

A secret, massive beach at Cape Liptrap Coastal Park almost all to ourselves. A massive sandbank created a huge deep, calm pool along the shore that began to transform as the tide turned. Magic.
