Shelly Beach at dusk

After spending the morning shopping in City, we headed over to Shelly Beach this afternoon for a swim. I’d picked up a new mask & snorkel for myself so I was very keen to try them out.

We’ve swum at Shelly many times over the past years and I’ve always been amazed at the number of people either diving or snorkeling straight off the beach. After 10 minutes with a decent pair of goggles on, I now know why.

It’s teeming with fish!

I was literally 5 metres off the beach with kids, dogs - you name it - all swimming around me on the surface, yet just under the surface there were dozens of small and not so small fish swimming around the rocks and seaweed outcrops. Incredible, I think I’m hooked.
