Oct 2018, Mornington Peninsula, Vic
There’s warmth in the air and a spring in every step. Melbourne has turned on one of those days when Port Phillip Bay is perfectly flat and a soft powdery blue. Families are drawn to the Peninsula to dust off the holiday house, mow the lawns or just wander along the sand dreaming of fish and chips.
Seagulls crowd onto a sandbar. A family with arms full of babies struggles with a new beach shelter. Fishing boats and jet skis buzz about as ships loom large at this wide bend in the channel. Dogs and children splash in the seemingly endless shallows.
It’s here! Summertime is here!
