This tunnel under the highway leading to the railway station is covered with "tags" but looks OK because of the original artwork done quite a few years ago now.  It is much more cheerful than before its makeover.

Getting ready for the march

The roads are closed off for the march.  Maybe the weather will improve by then.

Honour Ave

Broad Street was renamed Honour Avenue in 1918 and the gardens established to commemorate the local servicemen who saw action the first world war. A war memorial was added as the top of this path and unveiled in 1923.

Autumn colour


Setting out from home it was clear that at last autumn was here. The local children will be happy because their park is again open with their new play equipment. It seems that they have moved away from fake turf to sand, and swings are back on the agenda.

Anzac Day

Today is Anzac day, the day we remember the sacrifice of those who fought to give us our freedom. We were meeting with a cousin in the city so on the move early. The day was misty with just a few wreaths placed during the dawn service a few hours earlier. Unfortunately, this year we would not be able to attend the march held later in the morning. However over the next week or so let's what my camera I picked up on our trip to the city.

Going home

That's it for this trip.  We will be back this way again because Ian has to come down to the Uni every now and then and I get to have a beach holiday while he studies. Have a lovely Easter break with many blessings everyone.


One last look at the water before we go back home.

Flowers of the seaside


I like the battered vegetation by the sea.  It makes me feel a little wind blown too.


Come on let's go back to the beach.  There are lots of birds about in the vegetation along the path but hard to photograph.


Mural on the amenities block.

Sea Lines 7 of 7

Back at the camp the lines continue.  More and more of the campsites are given over to cabins these days but they generally have a few spots for caravans and tent campers.  This campsite is very large with plenty of spots for all types.

Goodie, the sun is shining.

To me, the beach is an interesting place because it gets repainted very day.

Can you feel the wind blowing your hair about?

Sea Lines 3 of 7

Some lines are quite subtle.

Sea Lines 2 of 7

Yes the weather was a bit changeable.

Sea Lines 1 of 7

It is not a very interesting beach, just big and sandy with waves rolling and rolling.  That's why I always think about lines when I am by the sea. The beach also has a line of ships on the horizon.  Waiting to be loaded at Port Kembla I guess.

The other direction

This is looking in the other direction, early in the morning.  The weather ranged from raining, cloudy to warm and sunny.  But to we mountain folk it feels warm whatever the weather.

At the beach

Here we go, we're at Corrimal beach.  I guess that is Wollongong at the far end.

Window to the sea

I love coastal paths, the way they lead through an untidy tangle of vegetation to slowly reveal a glimpse of the sea.


We are back at the seaside.  Come walk with me.
