Perhaps not quite kelp, but can I call it Kelp’s baby cousin.

I decided to stick to Aussie favourites for his week’s challenge.

Griffin Gully Pier with the sky colours reflected in the water.

Again reflections and colours.

The pier, above, is just to the left.

 

 

The sun is just a picture as it endeavours to remain in bed. 

Reminds me of our boys when they were teens and

I wanted half an hour’s assistance on a Saturday morning.

It always took an hour to get them out.

The first time I ever tried smoothing the water.

The 12 Apostles on a 44 Degree Celsius day

 

I love the colours of the sand, foam and aqua water.

It is obviously being enjoyed by this beach goer.

Looking west from Point Nepean to Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.

During my school days, I am sure we were told that

the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, known as The Rip,

was only 6 fathoms (36 feet) deep.

 

 

Point Nepean from Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.

Google states that Port Phillip Bay’s deepest portion

is only 24 metres (79 ft) and that half of

the bay is shallower than 8 m (26 ft).

wonderful; exciting.
 
 
 

It was magic that this rainbow

appeared as I was leaving

Point Lonsdale Pier. 

It lasted for around 90 seconds,

and then simply disappeared again.

 

 

It was again like magic to watch daylight

raise sun from the sea.
