Millie Brown captures the essence of a summer in South Australia in Robe on the Limestone Coast.
Given South Australia has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, summer for me is all about being by the sea, chilling and relaxing, winding down and warming up. Throwing the shoes off and the bathers on. Feeling the healing energy of the sea and breathing in the salty air.
These photos reflect time spent outdoors under the big Australian summer sky, appreciating the beauty of nature and interacting with it. Ditching the sensible car and jumping in the Land Rover.
This beach is one of the few drive-on beaches we have in South Australia and it is one of our most beautiful and loved. A dear friend of mine has a wonderful beach shack here and I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy many summer days on this glorious patch of sand.
Waking up to a sizzling hot breakfast on the deck, packing the Landy with an assortment of beach gear, food and drink, and heading down onto Long Beach to do nothing other than laze under the beach tent, sip a cool drink, play a little backgammon, and swim in the clear aquamarine water that this beach is renowned for, is magical.
As the sunshine fades, we pack up the Landy and cruise along the sand over to the famous Robe Obelisk to watch the sunset and the big beautiful waves of the wild Southern Ocean crash against the limestone cliffs. Sometimes the Landy needs a little help to get going, but mostly she is the perfect beach jalopy for the job.
