A warm, yet calm 31°C/88°F day calls for a visit to the beach!

Despite being calm, the visibility in the water wasn’t very good, probably churned up a few days ago. There were also a lot of dead or dying jellyfish, probably blown close to shore by the same winds.

Themidaceae (formerly Liliaceae) – northern California and southern Oregon
Firecracker Flower
Shown: Clustered flower buds and fully opened flowers

"Dichelostemma ida-maia is a species of flowering plant known as firecracker flower. It is native to northern California and southern Oregon, where it grows in mountain forests, woodlands, and coastal meadows. It is also widely cultivated as an ornamental plant for its showy crimson and cream flowers. This is a perennial which erects a tall, naked stem topped with an umbel of six to 20 flowers. Each flower is a cylindrical red tube two to three centimeters long. The tip of each flower lobe curls back to reveal a shiny white underside. The curls rim the mouth of the tubular flower in a corona, surrounding the small anthers and a stalked ovary. The flower hangs when it is in anthesis and holds itself erect as the fruit develops. One umbel may have some hanging flowers and some erect fruiting flowers at the same time." (Wikipedia)

Notes: Sydney Exposures book and exhibition caption: The boys on the beach, Bondi, 10 October 1932 : The athletic young man with the backless cotton costume risks arrest. Regulations from the turn of the century prevented men from exposing their upper torsos on the beach, but from the late 1920′s, more adventurous bathers abandoned the traditional woollen skirted costume.
["The Pier Club" was first used by the changing sheds attendant, George Proudfoot, who said "You bloody Pier Club Mob will have to stop getting changed on the beach." The pier under which they changed was one of two on Bondi Beach.]
[l to r: Frank Fitzgerald, Roy "Ghandhi" (or "Ritchie" ?) Richards (compositor), Sol or Solly Marks, Louie Joseph, Les Pointer, Charlie Grubbs, Ray "Blondie" Pointer (printer at the Sun newspaper), Alf "Bait" Gould (used to swim alone beyond the breakers, hence the nickname "Bait" as in "Shark Bait", and worked at the Sun), Frank "Fonco" Ward of Paddington or Colin Stanton (?), Jack Thomas, Joe Johnson (carpenter from Bondi), unknown smoker, and Charles Martin]
