The Beach.

With over 23 beaches around the peninsula there is one for you.  Memories Of The Beach

We went to the beach to get wind in our hair to stand on the sand and simply to stare.
To let the surf tickle toes and dampen our clothes as we played ‘run away’ from the wavelets at play.
We went to the beach to climb on the rocks find cool shallow pools where we’d take of our socks, and peer in the waters to see what we might find that the waves of the sea, had last left behind.
We went to the beach to find coloured shells the kind that when placed to our ears make the sound of the ocean appear, in the places we walked, for most of the time.
We went to the beach and all that, we did find and the smell of the salt refreshed our tired minds.
I’ll never forget the laughter and sounds and the freedom to run, on that wet sandy ground.
We went to the beach my family and I and there we were one, with the ocean, the beach, and the sky. David Taylor
