a beautiful day

Man, I love the mornington peninsula so much. It is my home town -and it never fails to amaze me. I went for a lazy walk down the beach and along to the marina to take some photos.

This is the local beach that we usually swim at. It’s so busy in summer!! It’s one of those annoying things for the locals, when its warm enough to swim everyone comes down for the holidays but you put up with it because – well look at the ocean!!


There are even quite a few beachboxes around, so that’s pretty cool too.

The Marina is only fairly new, I reckon it was built about 5 years ago maybe? Anyway it has been interesting seeing it from the beginning to what it is today. I am hoping they put in a restaurant around there because it would be so pretty.

Most of the properties are huge and they feature a private dock, so as you can imagine they sold for a lot of money. Nice to look though! Haha.

It has been so nice to spend the last week back home with mum.

Walk with me

This morning we went for a drive to get out of the house. Those are some pretty clouds!

We went up to the lake and I walked around to take some photos. There were so many families out feeding the ducks and enjoying the day off!

It’s the first month of Autumn over here, and the weather has started to get a little colder already! There has been a fair amount of much needed rain the last few days. I sat on the little dock and watched the world go by for a little while. I really love nature, but I just dont get out there enough. I’m making it my goal to do more outside.

I love the colors in the moss on the wood! It makes it look really old, I wonder what stories it’d tell if you asked nicely.

We drove back via the beach road. It’s such a lovely area.

Hope your weekend was lots of fun!

I love my city

..and I love my town. I have been lucky enough to live and work near the city (Melbourne) during the week and then come and stay with mum down the coast on the weekend for a while now and I love it!! With my departure coming quickly I have been appreciating the best of both worlds, and would like to share some of my fave photos of the areas.

* Sunset at Dromana in summer. I remember salty sand, cold water and yummy icecreams. Growing up near the beach was a wonderful thing, and weekly family fish and chips every friday night after a swim.

* My fave view – Seawinds gardens. Many a time over the years I could be found sitting on a blanket, with a picnic and just enjoying nature. With a view like that it really helps to put things into perspective.

*Melbourne – this is a shot of the iconic trams and flinders st station. I remember growing up down the coast – an hr and a half from the city – it always filled me with awe to go to the city. Everything was so exciting, and busy, and there was a real pulse and atmosphere. I still see that now.
