Our World Tuesday - Melbourne through the Ozone

This is all the remains of the paddle steamer Ozone. It was sunk off the coast of Indented Head – a small fishing port in Port Phillip Bay - to act as breakwater. You can see the CBD of Melbourne in the background, across the bay.


This beach is a wonderful area for just wading about when it’s hot.

You can find more places from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

You can find the most recent post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the pictures.

Now that's a breakwater that's not seen every day. :)

Great tour Stewart, although I'm trying to figure out the why. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

I suppose it is good that there is still some use for her.

I love shipwrecks and this one looks like a corker.

Wonderful Stewart!
Your photos are really making me look forward even more to my trip to the Mornington Peninsula in December!

It looks so wild and alone it's hard to believe there's a big city not that far away!!

Is 'bush basher' another phrase for your alliterative self-description?

It has transformed into a water sculpture! Fascinating!

Veronica said...

Phew the paddle sticking out! we have a monster wreck sitting in the bay spoiling of Table Mountain View at the moment and ca't wait to get rid of it as it is not useful like yours is.

That is a novel way to build a breakwater, and an interesting place to sit and gaze at the water I guess.

A stunning photo. It seems to be a beautiful beach.

Your photo caught my eye on 'Our World Tuesday' blog. It looks like a work of art.
