Henley Beach is an area very familiar to me so it was nice to go there today to see if things have changed much over the years.
We started our walk close to “The Breakout” where the River Torrens enters the sea.
View from the parking area near “The Breakout”.
I went down onto the sand while those with tricky knees stayed on the hard surface.
Two Crocks walking north.
Just catching some waves.
Norfolk Island Pines have been planted in many seafront places.
Looking north to Henley Jetty and Grange jetty beyond that.
Looking south – Seagulls or Silvergulls looking for a snack.
Different housing styles – not all to my liking!
Years ago many houses along here were “Rest Homes”.
Some special places have memorial plaques.
The Two Crocks up on the path.
Back at “The Breakout” some Pelicans were on display.
The real thing.
Driving back home there was an unnerving sight ahead of us.
Fire in the hills just above the city.
Luckily it turned out to be a “prescribed burn”, one carried out to clear highly flammable vegetation before Summer.
