Marino-Seacliff-Brighton Coastal walk, yeah!!!! 12th dec 2009

Woke up later than I thought, hmmm,….. should i to go Port Willunga and Maslin beach, until i decided, i was pretty much in a rush, saw the wrong timetable, walked the wrong st to the wrong bus stop (have a short glance on google map), so i ended up delaying and walked into this bonsai garden selling bonsais.

Quite a pretty well organized and planted bonsais :)

This owner even built a house for pigeons, not sure is wild or tamed ones.

Finally got on the bus, but the bus was late for the next bus i needed to catch, #@%^%$&*…… luckily i have back up plans. Catch the train, and went to Marino conservation park!!! Which turned up to be very well!!! As this conservation park is located quite near to the coastal, as i walked uphill, the coastal sight cheered me up from the shitty bus, haha.

The dried grass was all slanted to one side due to the wind from the coast. And out of these dry dry grass, there turned up to be some pretty wild flowers!!!

As i went up higher, the view was just FANSTATIC. The pictures below can hardly do the view justice!!!

On top of the hill is a lighthouse which i’m no sure is still functioning or not. My frind told me he and his friends used to climb up here to hang around to view the nightline of the coastal, which will be something i will do in the near future, hehe.

The lighthouse. The fences that marks the boundaries of the park. The fences became my shooting theme, haha. Love them!!!
