You only need to take one look at the global news to get a glimpse of mother nature at her most powerful. From 80-year record highs, to earthquakes, I’ve experienced a few instances first-hand, but there are also plenty of subtle changes, changes that have occurred over hundreds, if not thousands of years.
I recently spent a Summer’s day by the rock pool at Freshwater, one of Sydney’s gorgeous Northern Beaches. After a quick dip in the morning, and a scenic walk to a cafe in nearby South Curl Curl beach for breakfast, I spent most of the day reading my book in the shade provided by the rocks. (I’m currently halfway through Black Rock White City by A.S. Patric.)
The sea breeze and my giant water bottle kept me cool throughout the day, and I enjoyed beer-battered fish and salt and pepper squid for lunch from a cafe just behind the beach. I went for an afternoon walk among the rocks, spotting a few crabs along the way, and taking a couple of photos of my surroundings.
It’s amazing to think how the beautiful shapes of these rocks have ever-so-slowly changed over the years thanks to time and the elements. I can only hope that time is as kind to me.
