This week's #beachthursday comes from the Victorian town of Dromana. Located on Port Phillip Bay, 90 minutes south from Melbourne, Dromana sits at the foot of Arthur's Seat, which offers panoramic views of Mornington Peninsula. Dromana is a perfect place to rest after a big day at the beach.
It's #beachthursday time again & this week my photo comes from the Otago Peninsula in New Zealand. Allan's Beach is a well hidden beach on the eastern coast facing out onto the vast Pacific Ocean & with the icy winds blowing, a wet-suit is a must. This is a beautiful beach that feels like your own.
It's #beachthursday & today's beach is from the place I like to call home, Melbourne. To be fair, Melbourne isn't known for its beaches. It is known for a lot of other really great qualities, but it does have some nice beaches where you can relax & enjoy a day in the sun on the city's doorstep.
For many years there was a festival on my wish list. The problem was that every January, I was unable to attend because of work commitments. So while back in Australia this past summer, I finally got to attend the “doof” I’ve heard so much about. I finally made it to Rainbow Serpent Festival.
Five hours inland from the Australian east coast is the town of Wagga Wagga, where I grew up. And on the Murrumbidgee River is a beach. Yep, a real beach. It’s nothing spectacular, but when the summer temperature soars well over 40˚C, having a place like this makes the summer infinitely more fun.
You know that moment when you are at the check in desk, when you place your bag on the scales & hold your breath. You see the numbers rolling over rapidly, the staff serving you watch the sweat starting to appear on your forehead & decide now is the time to give you an evil smile, then that moment arrives.
This week’s #FriFotos theme is: Oceans. When I was growing up, the nearest ocean was five hours away. I loved every second I got to spend on a beach and swimming in the crashing waves. But the thing I loved the most was the never relenting, salty wind blowing on my face. My niece loves the same feeling.
Melbourne is the place that I will return to one day, it’s home. The time that I have already lived in Melbourne, has given me so many great memories & is why I can’t wait to return. One of those moments was when I took my “boys” one evening to St. Kilda beach & did some random funny stuff that I love to do.
The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia has some great beaches. Aireys Inlet is one of those little gems that most people will drive past. Hidden down a dirt track, behind a lagoon & sand bar, is a beach that you only have to share with locals. On a beautiful sunny day, you will never want to leave this spot.
