My recent early morning walks with Kayla have been on sand to gently strengthen my leg after the infection. I usually walk from Kent Reserve to the Granite causeway along Esplanade Beach, then back again along the footpath path.
It's usually sunrise when I cross the mouth of the Inman River near the caravan park:
I still need to avoid walking amongst the coastal rocks west of Petrel Cove because if I trip and fall I may damage the just healed infected skin graft. It is best to be overly cautious. Walking to Dep's Beach or to the rocks at the bottom of Kings Beach Rd are off limits. It is walking on the flat, hard sandy surface of the beach for the moment to build up the muscle strength in my leg.
I do struggle to find subject matter to photograph on Esplanade Beach. Usually it is bits of seaweed lying on the beach near the edge of the waves:
There are not many people walking along Esplanade Beach around 6---6.30am--just a couple of locals who regularly walk their dogs along the beach. I am usually the only one photographing.
