Back from Boomer

We are back from a lovely weekend away at Boomer Beach. We have friends who have a beach house on the beach front at Boomer. Boomer is about a 1 hour drive from Adelaide it is a beautiful place and we went to bed at night and woke up in the morning to the thundering sound of surf.
This was the view from our front windows.

On Sunday we woke up to thick fog but Sean was not put off and we all set off for him to have a surf. Mel of course thought he might have a go but after reading the signs.

While walking in the evening I saw these boys about to go body boarding don't you love their changing room.

I forgot on Friday to thank everybody for dropping by for my 100th post it means a lot to have comments left and I am surprised that I have got to 100 posts. Blogging has proved to be more rewarding than I thought possible I have made friends all around the world it has made me more productive and it has rekindled my love for photography so thank you once again all my blogging friends I am truly thankful.
ALMOST FORGOT..... Kerry is having a give away head on over there.

Boomer looks like a marvelous place for a weekend getaway - what a view. Mel was wise not to go for a swim ... a fellow his size could very easily get sucked under by those rip tides!!!

Glad you are home safe and sound!

Thoroughly enjoyed the pictures of the beach. Heavenly scenery. Mel the monkey always makes me smile.
Thanks for sharing your day and your photos. Love photos. Cheers from the North coast of Scotland.

Loved the photo's ! What an incredibly lovely spot. It took me a while to figure out how such a gorgeous beach could be deserted, but I am guessing now, you were up VERy early!
Laughed out loud at the one of Mel being threatened with the ketchup...
was the hungry boy going after some ones bacon?
an amazing shot on the surfboard!
looks like a wonderfully relaxing time!
thanks for sharing!
feels like i had a bit of rest over the weekend! (LOL)

Once again, I'm in complete agreement with some of the others, your pictures are wonderful! You could sell them as Post cards... at the very least! They truely are beautiful. They really show your impression of the coast (my favorite part of the world... the ocean that is) and the other pictures are wonderful too. I can just imagine your photo album!
They look as if they belong in a book.

Locket Pocket said...

It looks like you had a lovely time in a very beautiful place! I'm glad Mel didn't go swimming though!

I always love your photographs - especially the one on my card that arrived with my quilt today! Thank you so much for all my goodies - I have emailed you too! I can't wait to show it all off on my blog this evening.

Thanks again.

When your photographs arrived today we just had to back through all of your blog to look at your other pictures. We have now decided that we are going to come and live with you, as long as Mel doesn't mind of course :-)

glad to see that mel didn't get caught in a rip.....

Nic said...

Wow ! Surely puts a weekend in Melbourne to shame. What a fantastic spot.
I am practicing my knitting .... maybe i'll have a primate companion soon too, but she won't be the star that Mel is.

Mrs Moog said...

What a beautiful beach and fantastic photos! Glad you had a lovely weekend.

I'm pleased Mel decided against the surfing. Waterlogged primates are not a happy sight :(


Lisa said...
