NORTH HAVEN, S.A.

“One should be empty, open, choiceless as a beach waiting for a gift from the sea. The sea once it casts it’s spell, holds one in it’s net of wonder forever. I love the beach. I love the sea.”……Anonymous.

This was my first glimpse of North Haven beach. It could quite easily have been a picture on a wall but it wasn’t, it was the view through a picture window overlooking the dunes and the beach to the ocean and it only gets better. I believe the collective of owners, so as to preserve the native flora, use the one track to gain entrance to the beach.

The Position of the house we were staying in was nestled between the small boat harbour on one side and the entrance to Port Adelaide on the other which meant there was quite a lot of activity happening on the water.

North Haven beach is both long and wide with beautiful sand and crystal clear water lapping the shore.

The time to walk along this beach is sunset. Great for photography as well.

On either end of the beach are walls of rough hewn sandstone rocks revealing an array of colourful natural patterns. This is one example.

If you are disenchanted with your lot at present, you could consider moving to Adelaide in South Australia where you have some very nice beaches, bike and walking paths, vineyards, universities and reasonably priced housing. I would certainly consider North Haven Beach which is positioned some 20 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD. This may prove to be the best decision you ever made.

Live well and stay safe.

LA COULEUR ROUGE

“Difficult choices, unlike red wine, rarely improve with age”…..Richard N. Haass – https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/red

“Red sky at night, a sailor’s delight. Red sky in the morning, a sailor’s warning.”…..?

Does the COULEUR ROUGE, stimulate passion and desire in you, and as with good red wine matures with age, or is it a warning of danger and the time to flee?

THE QUESTION IS –

“Why is a useless question, an unknown object. But to suspend thought is impossible. The mind is made perfectly of possibilities.”

Can anyone identify correctly what the subject of these three photographs is?

Life should be about learning and living and….. having fun, but to many, too many, life is merely about trying to exist….

THE DISAPPEARING SUN

“My dream date would be a hike through the woods followed by an outdoor picnic, followed by a glass of wine at sunset. Heaven!”…..Nina Agdal

“Natures way of painting the perfect ending to a perfect day.”…..JPB

Having had a wonderful day and now sitting on the balcony with a glass of red wine in hand, chatting to friends and watching the sun go down was quite a fulfilling moment.

Live for the moment.
