A glorious day by the sea, except for the dead thing

Boggy had an RDO on Monday, it was going to be hot, so we headed off to Beachport for a spot of takeaway lunch at Woolleys Rock, and a look around at the rockpools.
Hello my yummy friend, long time no taste :)
We drove to Southend along the beach, it was absolutely bloody gorgeous and much cooler than in town.

While cruising along we spotted something big(and dead) on the beach and stopped to have a look. We couldn't work out what it was, probably a whale. Whatever it was it must have been in the sea a while before it washed up. It looked like a huge turtle at first, but there is no way they grow that big!










We stopped further along the coast, closer to Southend and let the girls have a paddle. Sum LOVED it, we were finding it hard to keep her out of the water.

  1. Wow! We were at Blueys and there were 100's of dead mutton birds - it was weird. They reckon they get tired in the migration or can't get food and die then get washed in, but there were soooo many - I think it must be something more suspicious. Then in Adelaide there was a full dead shark on the beach - just a little one, but it was weird (and desiccated). The world is warning us...

  3. That's a very interesting dead thing isn't it! Lovely pics too. Today, with an expected temperature of 44 degrees in Melbourne, I am very much wishing I were there!

    1. It was much cooler down on the beach, it was really noticeable once we got off the beach and drove home on the bitumen, how warm it actually was.

  4. Stunning photos. I really need to get myself a decent camera... you've inspired me. My Nokia phone just doesn't cut it. I reckon it was a turtle.

  7. Well, it is a very interesting dead thing. Trips to the beach can be very educational like that! Looks like a beautiful day overall though.

  15. Looks so beautiful, except for the dead thing. That looks smelly! I need to get to the beach again, its been too long (a couple of months, and that's definitely too long, especially for Punky!).

    1. It's a beautiful stretch of beach, about 15 km I think. Great swimming beach for kids.
      The thing didn't pong much when we first pulled up, but we did get a few whiffs of it, and we were out of there!
