How wonderful, a city on the beach!ReplyDelete
There are beautiful places to live in Melbourne or around the world, but I wouldn't live anywhere that wasn't close to a beach. Some beaches have stunning sand and some are wonderful for swimming, but in all of them the view is to live for.ReplyDelete
It's funny to see photos of the beach at this time of year in the northern hemisphere #MySundayPhotoReplyDelete
