An Aussie summer

At this time of year, the lazy days of January, Australians in droves decamp to the beach. So has Sydney Daily Photo. Here are some of the essential ingredients: an umbrella for shade, clothing to cover up from the ozone-hole strength sun, board shorts and rash vests, boogie boards and beach cricket. (That brown house nestling a third of the way up the cliff in the background, with the log cabins in front, belongs to Nicole Kidman and family). This is a really busy day on "my beach" !


  1. Here, it is winter, so a summer shot is a dream.

  2. Oh, how wonderful to think of sitting on the beach now. Here it's winter, but rather mild and friendly.
    I wish you a very happy new year 2008, dear Sally.

  3. A beach coloured for the bathe and the nap, it is that which it is necessary for me for the week end

  4. Damn! I could really do with some of that right now. Thanks for the reminder of what life CAN be like; I'd almost forgotten about the possibilities of summer.

  5. So, your beach is home to Nicole Kidman's house; great deal... ;))
    And now you finally know about rosebud; never too late... ;)
    Fabyulous firework shots!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. oh, what a bliss Sally!
    glad you're enjoying the summer!

  7. Is Rosedale Beach close to Palm Beach? It's North Shore because of the colour of the sand, I think. Lucky you, Sally. Have fun.
