Surf Coast Walk, Torquay

This walk started at the end of The Esplanade, where  we followed the beachside path and headed behind the Surf Club.
We crossed the tidal channel via a wooden boardwalk over Spring Creek...

...where a lone pelican had his own private island all to himself. 
It was an easy walk to Rocky Point and its fabulous views.
The timber lookout was rebuilt last year and features two viewing platforms; one looking East to Torquay and the other looking West towards Bells Beach.
Stone seating is layered to represent the rocky reef breaks offshore...

...and information signs tell the story of the waves and the wind.

Torquay Surf Beach had boards flying across the waves from dawn to dusk...

The walk back to the car offered a different aspect, as the sun was higher and sending a million sparkles down onto the water.
