Greetings Karel,

When you have surf to enjoy, 25-27C air temperature is ideal weather to maximise the enjoyment, Karel. But if you prefer the water to be a bit brisker chose the beaches south of Sydney where the warm current has left the coast and the deeper cold water flows in around the beaches!

Or else, head to Büsum and shelter in a wicker chair from the winds off the North Sea, and admire the cold North Sea from a distance.

LOL "best beach in the world" - I couldn't agree with you more, Ian! Thanks for sharing your great photos on the net; inspiring memories, and also wanderlust for places I've not visited yet.

Inspiring memories? .. so is that you lying among the dunes, Linda... no wonder it is the best beach in the world!! LOL

You certainly have travelled, so I am pleased that I have found a few places you haven't been to add to those you have seen. Thanks for the visit and the compliments.

Warmest regards from the East.

Hi Ian! Not me among the Main Beach dunes, I'm afraid...but, depending on when you took the photo, maybe me running along the beach in the far distance! And I can't wait to visit there again. cheers, Linda

We, everyone in eastern Australia that is, have had a very wet summer, and tomorrow will dawn cloudless with blue skies and great surf. Should be a great time to be back on the beach, Linda... if you can fly over!

Regards, Ian
