There are hints of summer this morning, although a few days ago we were freezing with cloudy skies and cold southerly wind. It was high tide so we walked out onto the Point instead of walking along the beach. The Hakeas were flowering, I love this pink version that grows wild here. These sharp needled bushes make a perfect bird habitat.
There are still some Red Wattlebirds about, here is one in a casuarina by the track.
Honeymoon beach is always lovely!
On the track through to our beach we found a group of casuarinas flowering profusely …these are Allocasuarina littoralis, the male flowers form the long orange tips, and the female flowers are discrete red stars on a separate plant.
