We finally got our relax day today.
It didn’t happen on Friday – we were sick, and I was busy baking.
Saturday I was still busy baking, we were still run down, and then I was working.
On Sunday, well… Easter.
And today, we were able to just lounge about and enjoy the day in some kind of unhurried state, as we ventured a short 15 minutes or so to Dromana.
We had some lunch with a lovely vantage point over to the water.
We crossed the road to the park so that baby girl could have a good ol’ play.
The water was green and coral-like. The sunshine reflecting off it made it sparkle blindingly.
And then we started to walk down the long, narrow, not-very-safe-on-one-side pier… ‘started’ being the operative word… until Hubbie decided to look over the side and let baby girl stand all too close to the edge, which resulted in me turning my heel on them and storming off.
He had to give me a heart attack, AGAIN. I would have no part of them falling into the water with me there, thank you very much. If he was going to be reckless, well then I wasn’t going to stand by and just have a heart attack and just watch!
So, it was relaxing, up until the pier. But you know, bliss in the sun, heart attacks on the pier, IT’S ALL BALANCE.
Dromana is a lovely seaside village with a community of 6000. The advantage of their main strip is that it is directly opposite to an accessible beach, for both young and old. Mornington may be the hub of the Peninsula, but most of their cafes don’t have direct views of the water just due to the geography and how they are placed, and even then the beach access slopes down amidst cliff-faces.
Anyway, we will be Discovering Dromana much, much more 🙂
