Scenic Sunday – A walk on the beach

I invite you to walk with me on this lovely sunny afternoon.

2 kite surfers were out having fun (pictures below); their large kites adding colours to the beautiful blue sky.

The platform below leads to a pergola out at sea. I took this photo from there, looking back towards the beach. You can see some tall buildings which is in city of Melbourne – e.g. the 2 tall bluish buildings a quarter way from the right. The city is about 10 minutes by car from this beach.

You are making me feel a tad jealous about your weather getting warmer and mine getting colder!

I bet the winds are perfect by the shore for kite flying.
