Babs at the beach

A I am spending a relaxing weekend in a beachside town – Anglesea, Victoria, and after a lovely walk on the beach, I thought I would recall a few movies with either memorable beach scenes or a setting at the beach.

Urquharts Bluff Beach – Anglesea, Victoria

And here they are…..

FROM HERE TO ENTERNITY (1953)

Of course there are many many other classic, and not so classic, films with beach settings – too many to mention.
