Our World Tuesday - Ocean Grove


Agreed to me some friends for a quiet morning stroll on the beach at Ocean Grove. The fact that it took us almost 20 minutes to find a park in the normally spacious car park alerted me to the fact that this may have been a bad plan.


It turns out that there was a surf carnival being held on the beach that day.


There were hundreds of people on the beach, some to watch, some to compete and some organise the hundreds of fit and near naked teenagers milling around.



These are a few of the pictures I took. I had intended to spend the morning looking for gifts from the sea. In the end that did not happen, but the alternative was not too bad at all.

You can see more pictures here at Our World Tuesday.

You can find the latest post on my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the page.

Enjoy the pictures.

It does look like a fun event to watch and lots of people there to do some people watching. Great shots. Have a great day!

Sometimes it's good to just go with the flow -- great people watching in a lovely, even if crowded, setting.

Some great ocean scenes. It's great people watching wherever you are!

If I were young, I would be right out there with them. It all looks so inviting. Those guys look like they are ready to take on the ocean. genie

Personally I prefer the beach to myself but it was worth the crowds just to get that second shot.

hi, i've been to some beaches in NSW and the teenagers and the teenagers once really love to be near naked! haha! And we even went to watch at Lady Bay, do you know that? They said tourists are welcome to watch there! But i love your photos here, and very well composed too.
