It’s been positively chilly in Darwin lately with minimums around 18C and maxing out below 30C. While I can hear laughter around the world, when you live with a 30-35 min-max much of the year, these temps are both a shock and a delight. It even means you can stay on the beach without burning to a crisp. Here are some photos from the water’s edge on a grandchild-expedition.
This type of black coral washes up regularly.
I love picking up the occasional stone (and shell) from the beach. This one is fairly typical of Darwin’s local stone. I love the dappled colours. Others can be orange, darker reds, pinks etc. It’s soft stone though so over time some of the stones in my little collection bowl have fallen to pieces.
Darwin tides are extreme. This couple was enjoying the chance for a walk on the sand.
