Warner Beach ~ Host @tattoodjay #wednesdaywalk



Grubby subway after refreshing clean up, a splash of paint makes the world of difference. Taking a walk from town to the beach you either need to travel over the railway lines or under, this is the only pedestrian subway I know of in the area.

Starting from one side to the other and back again... Shark, good warning for those going down to the beach when you enter the water you sharing the space with who knows under the waves.

I had to smile, whoever painted this must have had a sense of humor with a fish and dolphin swimming along the wall behind the shark, was this hide and seek or simply catching a slip stream ride?

The other wall depicted the wonderful Aloe Trees we find along the shoreline, moving down from seasand into the sea with dolphins frolicking in the water with smaller fish, colorful underwater plants.

Dolphins are no longer a regular feature as they once were, perhaps pollution in the water has taken them out further off-shore, we often used to see them dancing in and out of the waves...

Octopus sliding down the wall in to the opening of the subway with a welcome sign, walk from town using the subway onto the beach is a short walk, after photographing the beach we walked up the main road to take photo's of the sea.

An eco-friendly way to clean up plain grey cement, so appealing to see and remind people of the ocean deep, the animals that live in our oceans. Big beach cleaning excursions have been happening to try clean up the plastic waste washing up, something most walkers do when going out onto the beach.

To get out of the house or office, feel the sun and warm breeze, if lucky tip your toe on the sand and enjoy a walk along the shore with breaking water crashing to lighten your senses, or sit in a coffee shop watching the birds fly over the sea, wind whipping up sea-horses on the water after taking a walk outdoors makes life all the more worthwhile living.

A post I did two years ago streetphotography with entrance to the subway, mural was recently added to the subway now completing the walk.

All photography is my own, resized for ease of uploading, used a Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

Thank you for joining me enjoying nature in our part of the world, have a wonderful week, keep walking, keep smiling, life is short enjoy each moment!

Life is a pleasing tapestry, share it on #wednesdaywalk with @tatoodjay

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

What a change from what must have been a dreary grey subway walkway into a work of art i love it, and after passing through this you eat ago a beautiful beach how nice is that

Sad to hear the dolphins are not coming in close to shore anymore that could well be due to pollution it makes a lot of sense sadly

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :)

Youth have taken this painting mural project on, along with local lifeguards/youth cleaning the beaches, 'stamping' with reminders which is a good reminder...

Thats so great to hear the youth are involved :)

A big improvement on the subway Lady Joan, but for some reason I never go through subways. I have some photos of Dolphins in the waves somewhere in my archives and it is indeed a beautiful sight.
Blessings!

It's always nice to brighten up the concrete with a bit of colour, although the real thing is even better!

Miss seeing the dolphins playing in the waves @bengy

What a beautiful part of the world you live in! Such a lovely beach - glad they are taking the initiative to clean it up!

Loved the murals on the subway walls - much better than grey cement!
Thanks for sharing!

Cleaning the area, keeping it clean has become an ongoing task for the whole community @porters, I am grateful for the youth taking initiative.

hello there! enjoyed the murals on the concrete, too -- and Octopus is the best among them! I wish I had something like this around, to remind me about the creatures of the oceans. Acutally, I dont forget about them, tho we dont have a sea or ocean shore around, at all. (The Finnish bay, which is the part of the Baltic sea, i.e. in theory is the part of the World Ocean. ... is just a little muddy puddle, not a see at all. its even not salty...) heh. anyway, a great walk! I wish I could have same beach landscapes near me, I would spend there half of my life, I think. We dont value what we have, and value it only we lost it.... ps. and I never saw dolphins alive.... I saw only sharks, in oceanarium :)

You are so right in saying 'We dont value what we have', once something is gone, sadly it is forever we really need to learn to live with everything in our environment.

Hope you get to visit the sea and enjoy long white beaches one day @qwerrie

oh! that is one of my dreams since childhood I was crazy about the coral reefs and their inhabitants... have collected a shelf of books and some actual corals/seachells... now I am only feeding with other's pics and BBC films. also Im converting my baby into this sea-fondness... maybe she well make this dream true, when she grow up, maybe we will be still alive, and the sea will be still there, too.
