In the meantime, Iíll say that I spent my childhood and adolescent years spending weeks and weeks at a time in the Coromandel Peninsula on the North Island of New Zealand during the summer school break. It helped having a father who was a drama school teacher, as his holidays coincided, so we were away for up to two months! It was bliss.
Well, enough of the fond memories from my youth and the fanciful dreams of my adult life. Here is a selection of beach pics. I couldnít help but throw in a couple of the same beach, the photography demanded it. And it is the photography that counts in capturing the beauty of a beach. If itís overcast, itís all over.
Damn, I need to by lying on these beaches! Right now! But where does one start? I am lucky though, living in Sydney, Australia, there are some fabulous beaches around where I live in the Eastern suburbs ... But I gotta get my tanned ass back to Lonely Bay, or perhaps Waikiki ... Ipanema is alluring, I just wonder how much of distraction the local fare would be from the beach itself.
