For the new year I was able to visit my family in Victoria.
Normally the trip is filled with cycling and hundreds of kilometers of
Base training, however this year I was keen to do more exploring
with the snorkel and on foot.
The following photos are some of the magic sights that I have come across
while beachcombing on the coast.
The coast around here can be very rugged,
this year the conditions were a lot rougher than usual.
As always, my favourite tidal pools were the best place for snorkelling.
I was lucky enough to see a wobbygong shark and a few stingrays.
The tidal zone is an endless cycle of waves and tides,
The power of the surf on the rocks is quite amazing!
This part of the coast contains evidence of a massive split in the Earth's
crust over 500 million years ago. Since then the layers have been buckled over and over!
The marine life underwater is quite amazing!
The low tide is a great time to look for marine life in the pools.
Let's see if we can find a crab to photograph.
Now that looks like a good snorkelling spot!
Another day at the beachcombers office.
Stay tuned for some more underwater videos.
