A Rocky Owenahincha Beach?

I have very fond memories of Owenahincha Beach going back more than 20 years ago when my family stayed there on holiday. I remember a lovely sandy beach, and one morning when fog settled in so close than I could only see a few metres.

On a sunny day it must be beautiful, and it has a well deserved blue flag for its clean water but I was dismayed to see so many rocks on the beach. We met some lovely people there out with their dogs but at least one stray was wandering about and defecated just as we were leaving! 🙁

An Irish Examiner article from 2013 also notes the fall from grace this beach has experienced. It’s very sad, and disappointing.

Oscar on the beach again!

This photo of Oscar was taken in 2007 at Garrettstown Beach where Oscar loved to chase tennis balls. We always thought he was middle aged back then and nowadays he doesn’t do much running around at all. It’s hard to believe that was seven years ago!

Braving Warm Waters at Seaside

2010-09-14-0404-m

Seaside, the town where The Truman Show was filmed is in Florida. Automattic held a Grand Meetup there in 2010. It was so warm and humid during the day that I rarely went out.

We went for a photowalk at 7:30am one morning before the heat got unbearable. By the time we finished an hour later it was just getting too uncomfortable.
