Honeysuckle Point - Shoreham Coast

These pix were taken on January 16, 2012, on a 4 km return beachwalk along the Shoreham Coast, 8 km south of Melbourne, on Westernport Bay.

The tide was out a long way, exposing beautiful rock pools and serene lagoons.

My hike started at the main car park, then along the beach to Honeysuckle Point and the magnificent reef.

I first visited Shoreham Beach on January 16 1952, exactly 60 years ago, when I attended a ten-day camp organized by the YMCA at Camp Buxton.

I have included a photo taken on that day, showing members of my family and my tent mates - I am at the left in a blue and yellow striped T-shirt and runners! This is a tinted photo which I created from the original scanned 620 size black and white print.

For a full account of my 1952 visit to YMCA Camp Buxton, with some additional photos, please see my Shoreham Pictorial Heritage Website,
