Yesterday we took the train about 30 minutes south of the city to Brighton Beach. Spring is right around the corner and there were tons of people out enjoying the 70 degree day. This particular beach is famous for its array of colorful bathing boxes. They are individually owned and apparently worth a few hundred thousand each! It was fun to see all the different colors and designs.
I have come to the conclusion that, like most water sports, kite surfing is harder than it looks. I have no idea how they manage to steer those things. If my failed waterskiing attempts are any indication, I would be an awful kite surfer. I'll leave this activity to Peter, who said he would love to try it.
I love being able to sit on the beach and simultaneously enjoy views of the ocean and the Melbourne skyline.
Beach selfie. It's hard to take pictures together when it's just us two, so until we make some friends you'll probably be forced to look at one too many close-ups of our faces.
We got some ice cream and then walked back to the train station through a beautiful, quiet neighborhood lined with extremely nice houses. One was for sale and the sign advertised it as "3 million plus". Which basically means if you have to ask, you can't afford it.
Today it's back to work for Peter, and back to job searching/sending heated emailed to the landlord for me! We hope the end of our apartment nightmare is in sight.
