Today I went on a little drive to Rosebud beach - doesn't the name sound lovely. It is a summer holiday place and can look a bit tatty when the holiday makers are not there.
This is the way I like it though - time for quiet walks and many photo opportunities.
The collage shows some of the vegetation found around the area of the Rosebud Pier.
Mostly grasses and at present lots of seed pods ready to be picked up by the wind.
We had a big thunder storm last night and lots of rain but this afternoon was sunny and still. Rather humid at home but lovely and fresh by the bay.
There was a huge container ship passing through the port phillip heads. This is the entrance to the ports of Melbourne. It is a very narrow area of water and has to be carefully navigated. It is always amazing to see such huge vessels setting out on their long journey.
