Once again Barbara Jacksier is hosting Waterside Wednesday.
Go check it out
These photos were taken on Tuesday.
It doesn't seem to matter what the weather is like I seem to go to the beach every day. It calms the mind and is a great place to clear the head.

The poor beach is taking a real beating on these days

Just look at the water splashing over the wall

Poor old beach huts

Where is that sand???
If you want stripes of any color put on them just let me know and I can do it for you


Sunsets are one of my favourite things
on the Mornington Peninsula
Murrays Lookout at Arthurs Seat is a favourite spot
and Mount Martha Beach is just a couple of minutes drive from home.

Alison, what beautiful pictures you have captured on your trip to the beach!!!

I love the beach, honey. Just to sit and look at the waves does calm me but since being swept away in Ixtapa Mexico several years ago I never go in the water any more. It was frightening and I cleaned sand from "private places" for 6 weeks, sugar! Uuuuggghhhhh.....

Beautiful post Alison. It shows so well that the beach is beautiful and worth a visit any time of the year and not just in Summer!

Ya'll are really having the weather... hopefully the sand will replenish quickly. But wicked weather does make for dramatic photos.

I still wish I was down the coast, one day wasnt enough! Those poor little huts, I hope they plan to move them before they get washed away!
Great photos, Sue

Katrina said...

How wild has the weather been?? Look at those little huts. Looks chilly though. Not long now until that water is warm :) Bring on the summer!

Barbara Jacksier said...

Thanks for joining Waterside Wednesday, your photos are amazing. Getting shots like yours makes having to stay on shore almost worth it.

Jane said...

BEAUTIFUL! Your photos of the surf are magnificent! There is something special about watching waves...

I love sunsets too. (Check my Lake Harris post...I goofed when entering Waterside Wed. and I think it posted A Dog Day Afternoon).

Have a wonderful day!

I love the beach because it's usually so calm and peacful. The first few pictures are a great reminder that the sea is as dangerous as it is beautiful.
Great pictures!
Patricia :o)

Jeanne said...

Beautiful waterside photos Alison. Love those colorful beach huts!

Maya said...

Those beach huts are awfully close to the water! To me also..., nothing clears the mind more than a walk on the beach and looking out over the open ocean. I always love it on the beach, except maybe during a winter storm.

Beautiful pictures of the beach. Such nice daytime and nighttime visits. The heavy weather does make for nice shots. Thanks for visiting my blog for Waterside I could come by and see you!

Hi Alison

Your photos are gorgeous as usual!
Unlike our weather which hasn't been gorgeous at all, today was an exception, but wind and rain forcast once again for the weekend

I love that boat - I told you that before!! love the idea of selecting a personal sail, maybe even a personalised number written on with a fabric pen, I remember once I sold a yacht/beachy painting to someone and they requested the number of their yacht on the sail of the yacht in my painting

have a good weekend

What Beautiful Beach scenes!
Magic and Joy!

Holly Loves Art said...

BEAUTIFUL photos Alison! Those little beach huts are just adorable. There are some similar looking ones not too far from me in San Diego... but not as cute and colorful as these. You really captured some beautiful shots. Thank you for sharing! Now I am off to check out your store. :)

Can this really be around the world from me?!

Emily Claire said...

What beautiful pictures! I wish I could go to the beach right now. I'm glad you have been able to clear your head and relax there. Being near the water can be so therapeutic.

Hi Alison! I just tried to send you an email, but it was returned as undeliverable. Just wanted to let you know that I was a recipient of one of your beautiful flip flops in the swap hosted by Jennifer of Artrageous Afternoon. You did a great job and I love it! Thanks so much for participating!!

Your photography is stunning!!!
