Still down on Victoria’s Surf Coast,

but at Point Lonsdale this week.

Point Lonsdale is on the Western side of

what is known as The Heads…

Port Philip Bay’s only entry/exit to Bass Strait.

There is also another name used to describe

this entrance/exit…The Rip.

The Rip is a triangular area of water between

Point Nepean, Shortlands Bluff and Point Lonsdale.

Although the distance between

Point Lonsdale and Point Nepean is 3.5 km

there is only about 1 km which is navigable.

Due to rocky reefs and shoals the ocean floor

varies from less than 5 metres to 100 metres deep.

This reef is about 200 metres off shore.

Point Lonsdale pier with Point Nepean in the right background.

Again Point Nepean just visible on the right horizon.

And finally, this was my target for the morning.

The Point Lonsdale lighthouse reflecting the rising sun.

The cloud bank was mad to order and moving so quickly

that I only had a few minutes to capture this.

Between, and below, the two smaller buildings is a concrete

bunker/pill-box built for World War 1.

It is through the dark rectangle in this wall

that MGW and I  had to haul a table, chairs,

decorations, food, candles and so on,

so Number 2 Son could propose to his girlfriend.

AND just for the record I have a 25 foot extension ladder

which had to be extended 3-4 feet to make

it safe to climb up the required 10-12 feet to enter.

Week 80

Context

A couple out for a stroll along the sand near the

Twelve Apostles along Victoria’s

South West Coast line…

Both appear to be fairly tall…

if not above average height.

 

In this context however,

they are tiny.

In my view these a creepy photos, however,

I am sure there are those who will disagree.

Not the greatest photo but it gives an idea

of what ‘getting ready for lunch’ means.

A wrapped meal.

Morning sun has made these images…

in my opinion.

Monday was the best surf at Torquay for some time.

Still only relatively small waves, however,

there were some good rides.

Furthermore, I had never seen a surfer using a paddle before.

Or is that a paddle boarder, surfing.

It seemed to aid with balance at times.

I like this shot with the water splashed up around his knees.

I think here is a whole range of captions

which could be applied here.

Definitely my favourite for the day.

Week 12, 2017

~~~~~

Last Wednesday I planned a drive to

The Twelve Apostles…

to capture a sunset shot.

Well before sunset I decided to drive to a

nearby town to grab a snack to tide me over.

As I was reversing out of my car park another car reversed out

hit me and left me with what appeared to be

a scratch on my rear bumper.

Since talking to panel repair shops that $100 or $200

repaint has grown to $1200 to $1500 for parts

as ‘the experts’ have said I need a new two part bumper

which will cost that much.

Plus whatever damage may be on the inside of the bumper.

After seeing another car reverse out the same,

and wrong, way, I did not stick around for sunset.
