Are there enough waves for that guy to be surfing? Love the sailboat.

Gorgeous! I'd like to go back to the beach. It's been too long.

Oh, your second capture reminds me so much on the snad dunes in Holland (thanks for reminding me on good times:) )

Also, thank you for visiting my new art blog - love the comment you left!

Micha and Nick were both wondering about the origins of the naming of this beach. When I couldn't find anything online, I wrote to the relevant council and received this reply: The earliest record we have found was on a map drawn in 1894 but the map did not give any details. Quite amazing isn't it.
