Our World Tuesday - Windy Beach

I took my visitors - who happen to be my brother and family - down to Wilsons Prom National Park when they were here.  I happens to be one of my favourite places, so it was a good chance to show off some of Victoria's best scenery and wildlife as well as visit a place I like.

One of the most popular places to visit is Norman Bay - its next door to the visitors centre and camp sites and as a result its often crowded.  But that's only true if you visit in the summer!  Go in the winter and you can the place almost to your self.



(This is an older picture of the beach - and this is crowded compared to how it was when we visited.)

One of the reasons that you can have to the place almost to yourself is that there is almost nothing between you on the beach and Antarctica (except Tasmania) So when the wind blows it really does blow!


You can see the amount of sand that was on the move in this picture.

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

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

Enjoy the pictures.

It surely is a beautiful spot. We spent a couple of days of our one week honeymoon there when the visitor's centre was not even thought of but there was a butchers shop.

What a place. I love the feeling of isolation - wonderful. Although looking closely at the sand blowing, it does look as though someone has been buried in it and they are praying that you just might come along and dig them out. Or maybe I just need an eye test.

...for me there is no better place than the beach. Quiet, peaceful and such beauty surrounding us every direction.

It's looking a bit stormy, moody there and the sand is really on the move. Great shots.

Lovely shots Stewart! I love the dramatic sky in the first shot and the windswept beach in the second! Nicely captured.
