Coastal Delights

Over the handlebars with Wee Will

Coastal track

Coastal Delights
Wee Will paused on the scenic coastal track,
Gazed longingly at the sandy beach below,
Then at the giant rock before: Go back?
Or give the steep, granite descent a go.

The lure of the Bridport beach was strong.
The Supascoota with Wee Will astride,
Flew headlong down the rock and along
The beautiful beach, to the riverside.

A wharf-side visit to admire the craft before.
Boats nestled at extreme low tide in mud –
Island Traders; Matthew Flinders III and IV,
Both quietly, waiting for the tide to flood.

The bush and the beach keep calling Wee Will
And the ‘scoota helped him enjoy them still.

Down the rock!
Along to the riverside
Furneaux Island traders
