#Wednesday Walk - A Visit to Winkle Rocks

in Wednesday Walk3 months ago

This post is for the #wednesdaywalk challenge and the #makemesmile challenge collaboration. This collaboration initially took place once a month, but due to its popularity, @tattoodjay (of the #wednesdaywalk) and @elizacheng (of #makemesmile) decided to make it a weekly thing.

If you want to know more about the rules, visit this week's post by @tattoodjay where you will find all the rules at the bottom of his post after you've enjoyed his beautiful photos from his walk.

During one of our visits to Winkle Spruit, in Amanzimtoti, we paid a visit to Winkle Rocks, just below St. Winifred's Beach.

I love taking photos in that area.

Just below St. Winifred's Beach, you find some rock formations on the beach, known as Winkle Rocks. I suppose the name comes from the fact that it is located in the Winkle Spruit area.

A pool/entertainment area has been built on these rocks, but it hasn't been open to the public for a very long time now.

For today's post, I would like to share some photos, taken from outside this area as well as some of the rock formations around it.

Not approaching this area from St. Winifred's Beach (as we normally do), but directly from the parking area above Winkle Rocks, this is what you see.

Getting closer, focusing on the pool area from the beach.

Looking a little more to the right, with the ocean behind this area.

I walked down to the bottom and looked back to take the next photo from below with some holiday accommodation visible in the background.

Just below this area, to the southern side, you find some beautiful rocks on the beach.

The rock formation is mainly visible around the pool/entertainment area, but looking down toward the south, you still see some rocks in the water for quite a distance.

I love the appearance of these rocks when they are wet.

Plenty of space to walk around on the rocks and even find some life between the rocks...

And how can I spend some time on the beach...and not get at least one shot of a splash? Even if it is a little one...LOL!

Let's move on to some of the bigger rocks...

I love the different colors of this rock.

For the last photo in this post, let's zoom in to take a closer look at the colors of this rock...
