A new addition to the Fleurieu Sound Map.
The tide is gradually coming in around Granite Island at 7am on a calm Saturday morning. I sit beneath the causeway that connects the island to the mainland and the small coastal town of Victor Harbor. In the distance I can hear the drone of the nearby urban landscape, which occasionally becomes indistinguishable from the distant swell of the ocean reverberating from Encounter Bay along the coast to Victor Harbor and beyond. Aside from the gentle lapping of the water and the sibilant crackle of seaweed, birds occasionally punctuate the tidal ambience along with a sole jogger who comes thundering overhead. His arrival coincides with a sudden swell of water and the loud chirp of a nearby bird. An unexpected, though appropriate harmony.
