Super shots! That Fuji has certainly brought a new level to your photography. 

 

I see somebody lost a flipflop in the second shot. :)

I think I've been slowing down a little bit and generally shooting in a more manual mode making use of the various knobs and dials.  The rest of it must be down to Fuji.

They call them thongs here in Australia.  It can lead to a little confusion at times when discussing beach wear☺️

When I was a kid we'd also use that term for them, but I haven't heard it used that way in a long time. We call them slops now. :)

And the Kiwis call them Jandals!  (After a brand name IIRC.)

      Over the holiday period we had a few days away.  We stayed at Port Albert, a small village which was once one of the colony of Victoria's busiest ports!
       
      First stop on the way down was at Agnes Falls
       

      Agnes Falls
       
      Looked quite nice, but access was only to the top of the falls.
       
      Another trip was to 90 Mile Beach.
       

      90 Mile Beach
       
      This extends from just east of Port Albert all the way to Lakes Entrance - ironically, the opening of the channel at Lakes Entrance was one of the factors in the demise of Port Albert.
       
      On our return trip, we spent a day at Wilson's Promontory.  
       

      Picnic Beach - Wilsons Promontory 
       
      We walked along a series of such beaches - I could have kept going even further, but didn't have enough gear with me.

      A couple of gulls from a brief walk along the beach last week.  Unfortunately only had a max focal length of 55mm, so they have been cropped a bit.
