WATERY WEDNESDAY ~ 9 Coffin Bay

A stormy day at Coffin Bay, Eyre Peninsula,
South Australia.



These are the light effects that greeted us on arrival
one late afternoon in winter.



Pelicans perching and a cormorant lauching into space



With all that weather coming in, it was still a peaceful
yet invigorating scene.

Thanks to 2sweetnsaxy you can see lots of water by

    Thanks for comments! The seven Hills cat most be some years now according to my brother, and I think he was well fed. It was a very talkative cat and we had a nice long chat. I have been to the Arid land, but I guess it was too early. Have a nice day!
