Recently, hubby and I finally made it down south to Hopetoun. It was so beautiful! I love the beach and the ocean. I always thought that Hopetoun was spelt as Hope Town 😛
Barrens Beach is a small, sheltered beach nestled between dunes and a rugged quartzite headland. It is a popular swimming and fishing spot. Whales sheltering near shore in spring may be visible from the beach.
Before Iceland was so popular, I was there in 2011 and we had our own lovely tour guide Dooley. We ended up having him all to ourselves as the others didn’t make it. This was not the main attraction but it caught my eye. I loved the colour of the water and the shimmer look contrasted to the rock structure of green and brown around it.
For some reasons every time there is a pool of water, people have the urge to throw coins in it. Not the best for the water’s PH though it looks beautiful.
