It was a tad cool this morning, for Melbourne, close to 0 deg C where I live. Of course this is the morning I had to have my car at the mechanics at opening, before any cafes had set out their welcome signs. I went for a walk.

I’m not sure who tilted the horizon, but I’m sure those ships sailing towards the heads were grateful.

The city and southeast was looking a little reluctant to start the day.

… and there was frost on the seaweed!

It was glorious to be there. The tide was low and hardly even lapping the beach. There were ducks waddling through low-tide ponds. There was a sign that suggested that humans were welcome to walk unattached or on the end of a leash.

By the time I returned to the mechanics to collect my bags and seek out a cafe to work in, I was warm and restored. Love the sea.
