Life is a beach

30 01 2012

These pictures were taken at Goolwa and Middleton beaches at the end of January 2012 – the end of the summer season. Goolwa and Middleton, and the nearby town of Victor Harbor, are traditional summer holiday places for people from Adelaide. The towns are a combination of retirees (God’s waiting room, as they say) and holiday homes. This is where the “schoolies week” is held in South Australia. Only an hour’s drive from Adelaide, this area is very accessible even for a day-trip, and is often a couple of degrees cooler – very important in an Australian summer.
