Low tide at Tovarua

Still at CPL (Coconut Products Ltd), this is Tovarua Plantation Beach where we often have picnics and go swimming and diving. On this day the divers had to trek far out over the low tide flats to get to the reef.

Looks really stunning but i wonder how long you have before you have to rush back or you get cut off?

I like the idea of the reef and walking out to it but I would still have some misgivings about it and waves and tides and sharks and things I don't know not to touch or step on. It would be a big worry for me. I am comfy at home in my worn out slippers and my ageless shorts and my birds, and bees, and bugs and my flowers. It ain't much but it is my corner of paradise. I just wish it would rain.

I had a ball with a hawk today. I will publish it tomorrow. I got 290 good photos of it and never left my room.

That's poster material for sure.

Enjoyed you comment on my building shot. Funny thing is that your building is probably worth the same price our high rise tower sold for.

wow another picture perfect.

Marie said...

Lovely photo. The branches look like long legs trying to get more suntanned :-))

M.Benaut said...

Suntanned....... now isn't that perfection in a word.
I think that you should host the first Photobloggers World Conference in Rabaul. One can see straight away who will be there... after me !!!

Nick said...

Perfect shot! So fresh colors.

Hi All thanks for your comments

Welcome Nick

lyn - no worries - the tide is very slow - like us all in the tropics

sally - thanks for popping in I do try to visit you and I can occassionally but it is almost impossible to leave a message because of the size of the downloads. I'm sorry as I do love your photos and your views on life!!!!

m beanut - what a great idea it would be such fun!!!!

marie - that is exactly why I took the photo - I thought the branches looked like giant legs too - you are on the same wavelength

M.Benaut said...

..... and, if you really wanted to tease us further, you could tell us about the water temperature.

What a wonderful perspective!

Hope your daughter is feeling better :-)

Jules said...

m benaut - you asked and I have to say the water temps is a PERFECT 28 degrees!!!! Have you got your towel????

M.Benaut said...

Sure, but looks like I don't need one. Wouldn't need anything here, except perhaps a face mask. SOLD.

Jules said...

m benaut - you're right who needs a towel? You'll be dry in seconds. A mask will be handy to see all the coral and fish.
I saw a turtle on Wednesday which was a real buzz and you don't need to dive to see them - you can see them snorkeling as well (you that is not the turtles!!!!)
