refreshing waters...

Dromana pier, with views of Port Phillip Bay, is always an attraction 
even early on a summer's morning...

low low tide...


At low tide, the waters of Westernport Bay near Hastings look like the layers of marble cake...
fringed with a healthy frame of mangroves...
And, more interesting, the wreck of the tug 'Redbird' becomes quite visible on the sand bank...
The tug was built at Williamstown in 1915 and originally named ANZAC and later 'Redbird'...
The tug was operated by Melbourne Harbour Trust until 1934,
then sold to a Mr J.L. Dyson who planned to convert it into a commercial fishing vessel.
However, the vessel was laid up, and, some time during the 1940s,
it broke free from its moorings during a gale
and drifted onto a sandbank to the east of Hastings and was abandoned.
