A beach outing

A well-trodden pathway leading to Semaphore beach, with
swimmers under the ever-watchful eye of our diligent lifesavers.


St Vincent's Gulf beckons!

 ... and here a very large spade (shovel?) has been abandoned before the sandcastle even got started!

and here is the refurbished former Semaphore Palais, where many a couple danced away the hours!

The Carousel at Semaphore has been operating for many, many years and is one of the few 
(as I understand it) remaining in Australia

(at the time of our visit, child riders were nowhere to be seen, but some adults - including overseas visitors - were having the ride of their lives!)

Linking up with Our World Tuesday
(and grateful thanks to our hosts)

That's a beautiful carousel. Maybe it's a bit tame for our modern children. I would love to have a go.

Thats a serious looking spade (or maybe shovel!)

Nice pictures.

Interesting shots around the beach. It has been a long time since I had been to one.

Beautiful beach shots, and I'd love to take a spin on the carousel!

Love the views of the beach - makes me long for the sun (it's cloudy today). And the carousel is always so much fun:)
