This is the beach where we found all our treasures that are on my last post.

I did think of naming this post "Why I Live where I Live"

Why do you live where you live?? Tell me?? If you do a post let me know!!

We love to go up here of a weekend & camp on the beach @ the base of these cliffs.

The small dots on the beach are the cars.

Often from this spot you can look down and see turtles bobbing around.

This day we saw two. Sometimes you can even see a shark that has come in to feed on the small fish that hang around the rocks.

Heading down the beach to look for a good spot to set up camp.

The breathtaking view from up on top. If you look closely at the lowest
rock there are two people fishing.

This is a great place to do a spot of Whale watching.

I can totally see why you would live there. It is breath taking. I love the ocean and almost moved to San Diego once when I was divorced, but then Patrick came along & changed those plans. We live in Phoenix because that is where his job is. Plain & simple. When he retires we'll move full time into our log cabin in farrr N.Idaho. It is cooler there and we have 10 acres with pine trees all around us.Also lakes near by so we can go fishing. LOVED your photos. Blessings! C.

Yes it is breathtaking!
If I had'nt gone bush I would've gone beach.
My Grandparents live waterfront so it's great going to visit the kids love it.
Camping out at the beach...Such an experience! And one I have not had!:(
I live where I live because I desired space inmy life,Peace and less stimulation...You know trains ,planes,street lights...
I love the simplicity.
The small things that are the big things.
The wildlife,smell of bush..You get the idea,i think

I love living by the ocean, but wish the threat of tropical storms and hurricanes didn't come along as part of the package (our hurricane season runs June 1 - Nov. 30 each year). Your beach is far prettier than ours though. Your pictures remind me of where we lived on Maui. No cars are allowed on the beach here - no pets either, but some people take their dogs anyway. We've always been fearful of being the one that got caught and hit with a large $$$ fine to pay.

Hi Caroline

What a beautiful part of the world. There is nothing like being near the ocean. I'll take up your challenge and do a post of where I live, get some photos of my town and surrounds.

OOpsey seems to be leading the jet set life - ha ha! Look forward to keeping up with er.. his or her... travels. Which is it?

Cheers for now, Joolz

Breath taking views and scenery. I can see why you would live there. I can see why everyone would love to live there but then it would not be so peacefull.
Love and hugs

Hello Caroline

Take care

Good morning Caroline,

You are lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

I guess if I look hard enough around where I live I will find beauty as well (somewhere in amongst the red dirt and saltbushes).

Thanks for sharing these lovely photos.

Here is my post Caroline.

Wow, I wish we had a beach like that close by!

Hi Caroline, what a gorgeous spot you live in. I like it where I live but I have to admit I do miss the ocean. My hubby was in the navy for the first 20 years of our marriage and we always lived near near water. Thanks for all the lovely photos you shared.

p.s. forgot to say I came over from Cathy's blog, Cathy's Capers.

So gorgeous! What a beautiful beach to spend a weekend at. I must take some photos and join in "Why I live where I live". At the end of this week I will have finished my 4and1/2 week full time stint, where I am away from home at least 12 hours a day. Fortunately DH works nearby and chaffeurs me there, or almost there. I am looking forward to going back to 3 days a week soon and being able to blog again.
