I have always believed that when you look at life in reverse all is as it should be, while mostly I like to travel back to fond memories and moments, sometimes you need to look back as a reminder never to make the same mistake again, Moments deep within can be blinded by a false trust, i was so busy admiring through the lens that I didn’t see the water creep up behind me, left standing on a meter long island, i was drawn in, peaceful in a trance and forgot about the tide coming in, with a smile on my face I walked through the water not even feeling the cold. Thank God for reality checks.

Grantville on 3 different days at 3 different times! I love stopping by if i am down that way, although I do check my tides, it’s always great to see how its presenting itself on the day, wild water, sand that I sink in, yep i got stuck, or tide just at the right height, calm waters and a beautiful sunset.
When everything aligns perfectly, I don’t normally photograph people homes, but I couldn’t resist when I turned to see the light shinning on it, just as well! the tide had come in so fast that there was not much to stand on, oh well boots were wet anyway, on the upside I have good friends that live near by and I have sent her a copy to show the owner, only right I send them a copy if they want it. 3rd time lucky in the last two months to get the shots I was after, at just the right water level, I was there the day before and the tide was all the way out.
Its been awhile since I have ventured over this way, just a quick stop in Grantville from Phillip Island on the way home, there were a couple of young guys jumping it the water!!!! Madness, my fingers were frozen in 10 mins, would have been great to stay for the sunset but I thought it best to get my first born home, it was a huge weekend!!!
