The sun sets on Cable Beach

What can I say about Cable Beach that hasn’t been said before. The turquoise waters, the white/gold sands, the blue skies, the gentle breezes, the sunsets…….

Our favourite beach.

We’re on our last night of only a three night stay this time. We’ve swam in the ocean. We’ve enjoyed lovely beach walks. And we’ve relaxed between both on a hired sun lounger in the shade of a beach umbrella.

We’ve eaten fish and chips on the beach at the days end as we waited for sunset.

Clouds forming as we eat fish and chips waiting for the sun to set.

We’ve walked amongst the rock pools when the tide was out.

Exposed rocks when the tides out.

We’ve seen the sun lighting up the palm trees as it descends towards the ocean.

We’ve watched the camel trains return from their nightly sunset walk.

We’ve watched the sun dip into the ocean.

The sun sinking into the Indian Ocean.

We’ve wandered amongst the rock pools as dark approaches.

Rock pools to add interest to an evening beach walk.

We’ve watched the sun set turn to yellow.

The golden afterglow from the setting sun.

And then to red.

The red fire-glow before the dark.

We can’t wait to return and do it all again.

What a pleasure!
