I didn’t realise how lucky we are in Australia with our beaches until I travelled overseas. My first time on a beach overseas was in Florida and I had to push some pebbles out the way to try and find some sand. English beaches are also quite pebbly. Of course, we don’t have all the great beaches in the world, but we have a lot of them and I’d hate it if I didn’t live near the sea.
My dog loves the beach as well and I try to take her whenever I go. The photo above and below are both at West Beach in Adelaide.
The beach below (Vivonne Bay on Kangaroo Island) is my favourite because it’s so long and fairly isolated, this bit of it anyway. The water is a bit cool to swim in all year round because it’s on the southern side of Kangaroo Island, but when you’ve got these views who cares?
Another, more local, favourite of mine is Port Willunga and it helps that a good friend lives within walking distance. I had my first swim for the season there just recently and while it was a bit chilly for my liking it’s still totally worth getting in.
