30d30m#10: Urunga Boardwalk/ Breakwater and Mylestom Spit

Being the weekend, I had time to explore beaches a little further from theĀ usual. On Sunday I took a 15 minute drive south to Urunga. A boardwalk follows the breakwater from the caravan park in town all the way to the beach. It was a warm day, but the sand on the beach was clogged with piles of driftwood – probably from the recent weeks of storms – and didn’t look very swimmer friendly.

30d30m#9: Digger’s Beach, Coffs Harbour, NSW

Accessed via the highway directly opposite the Big Banana is the small Digger’s Beach. It’s in the resort area to the north of Coffs Harbour and is a very picturesque little beach.

I really like the first one, capturing the motion of the waves breaking and the seagull strolling along.

30d30m#6: Sawtell Beach at the Sawtell Surf Lifesaving Club

Today the clouds were still a mess and so was the ocean. From Sawtell Surf Lifesaving Club I walked up towards Murray’s Beach (where I was yesterday). I love the sound of the waves washing over the pebbles strewn across the shoreline. Adds to the meditative state that spending 2.5% of my day at the beach brings.
