Norah Head, N.S.W.

Today, on the Central Coast.






1903

growing along-side the pathway, Australian native, Banksia



standing at the top of the stairs here, had been watching out for whales currently on the move north to warmer waters.  Did I see any?  Only 'plumes' so far out (with my binoculars), but too far to bother taking a photo of



windswept coastal shrubbery


proved to be the perfect place for this crow to fly into, just for a moment.  Full stretch of the lens at 734 mm.

But you got to walk in the sand and listen to the waves!!! That would make it a perfect day, in my opinion...
