Come on let’s go down to Frankston
a walk on the beach always cheers you up, he said!

The beach in winter – Mmmm….maybe.

Why would you go though – there won’t be a soul there
It’ll be blowing a gale – the beach will be empty
and the water too cold to paddle

You can walk along the pier
and possibly see the cars in the distance going up Oliver’s Hill
Mmm…. maybe

Oliver's Hill from Frankston Pier

 Not a soul over there either
the sky looks so heavy I think it could fall down to earth any minute
and that water definitely looks cold:)

Oh look there’s the footbridge over the Kananook Creek
With some very hardy fools folk all rugged up, battling the gale
to be able to ‘take in the rather cold sea air’

Not a soul to be seen in the foreshore park
and certainly nobody sitting on the rather nifty bench
complete with what looks like a boat hull underneath

Why on earth would I leave my lovely warm home and drive for an hour
just to go to the beach in winter?

To see my baby brother’s boy – aka my nephew Lee
He lives interstate and was visiting Victoria for the first time so ‘our little girl’ arranged a super surprise for us by arranging to meet up with him.

There was a lovely meal, a long chat
and then (as the wind had died down)a short walk
Complete with coat, scarf and hat. On the sandy beach of course 🙂

Such a pleasant way to end a yucky week
I did draw the line at paddling in the cold water though lol
