The Beach!

Posted: December 29, 2014 by Mo Crow in It's Crow Time

Coogeea visit to Coogee Beach (that’s me in the red hat) on a perfect sunny day, no wind, not too hot, gentle waves, fun people watching and excellent sand castles being built by little girls with kelp decorations tiny-shellsa pocket full of shells (scale app 3:1) love the black snail

    and not TOO many people either by the looks of it. Does look quite beautiful tho. Hope you had a great time.

      the space was just an illusion of the panorama shot on the iPhone, the beach was crowded in a fun gala cornucopia of people in all our wonderful ages, shapes and sizes at play in the sun!

  2. After all this time I also still always have to bring some sea treasures home.

  3. In 1967 I lived there and worked, for a while, as a barmaid at the Coogee Beach Hotel . . . underage. Ah, past lives. The ’60s in Sydney were magic.

    Seeing you at the beach Mo is just what I need to battle this cold and also to deal with the fact that it is 19 degrees F this morning here in New Mexico. I’ll just close my eyes and dream that I am walking beside you, sunny times, soothing waves, soft warm sand between my toes…thanks for this great photo, it is good medicine…May you and Old Man Crow have a splendid new year.

      (((Marti))) sending balmy night breezes scented with apricot Brugmansia and Magnolia grandiflora through the ether from the early hours here in the Land Down Under

    Ahhh … we have always vacationed at the Outer Banks of North Carolina on or about the summer solstice. It is the perfect time weather-wise. And I particularly like the shell at “nine o’clock” which looks much like the ones I pick up on my beach walks.
    What a great way to bring in the New Year … enjoy!

    • Mo Crow says:

      one of the great things about Sydney is even though it’s a huge sprawling city of 4 million souls the beach gives everyone that wild space where the ocean meets the sand, that far horizon where the sky meets the sea and the constant pull of the waves as our planet breathes

    Ah. Summer. Beach. I really needed to see this on such a frosty morning. The shells look perfect for your talisman necklaces…

    • Mo Crow says:

      that black snail is calling to be a talisman, this is the year of B&W with just a hint of red with the editing of The illustrated lyrics of Old Man Crow. The new scanner is ordered and should arrive in store by Wednesday, looking forward to seeing all the drawings again for the first time since the project began in 2011!

    it’s 28F here so this pic of the beach warmed me up a bit.

  8. Carol says:

    Mo, I lived at Coogee for 15 years so I love seeing you there. Such a beautiful beach! I still need to collect a shell ot two from any beach I vist. Enjoy your summer! ((((Mo))))

    • Mo Crow says:

      Oh lucky you! I dream of living on a houseboat on a river near the sea one day but Old Man Crow & Ariel P Cat are not keen, we’ll be here in Newtown for a good while yet!

  9. Dana says:

    What a gorgeous beach! I can see that there are lots of people there, but beaches are so expansive the crowds just make the atmosphere more festive. Yay summer!

    Perfect day for the beach! I too always collect shells for their fascinating shapes and colours- cowries are my favourites but I usually only get them on the north coast beaches. Happy New Year, Mo! xxx
