Last month we headed out of the city for a day trip. It was proof that you don't have to travel very far to discover something wonderful. Our friends may be jetting off overseas or interstate but we're having adventures too. Just a little closer to home than them. That's the beauty of having only lived in Melbourne as an adult for 6 years - there's still so much to explore and discover in my own backyard.
We did a day trip to the Mornington Penninsula and discovered beautiful beaches and gorgeous views. First stop was Balnarring Beach in search of shells but instead we found lots of seaweed. We then headed off to see London Bridge (yes, I know it's a long way from home!) and on the way took the path less travelled.
As we were driving along we saw cars heading inland from the coast down a dirt track towards us. "Pull over," I called to G and he obliged. We bumped down the dirt track and after we parked were rewarded with the most magnificent views.
The rolling green hills ending in cliffs plunging to the ocean reminded me of the western coast of Ireland around the Cliffs of Moher.
It was a day for serendipity as we somehow we managed to coincide our visit to London Bridge with the sunset. It was the perfect ending to a lovely family day out.
