Today Mike and I went for a quick outing to Snapper Point in Mornington. It is only about ten minutes from home and although it has been cool and cloudy day it was lovely to be out for a while.
There is a path and steps up to a memorial marking the bicentenary of the birth of Matthew Flinders; he circumnavigated Australia and there are many places named after him: Flinders Street Station being well known.
The plaque also shows the directions to various places from the point. I always like these kind of markers as they speak of our past but also our present.
There were hundreds of people in the area today: some boating, fishing from the jetty, eating at the Rocks Restaurant (which is lovely) or buying take-away fish'n'chips from the cafe. (also delicious) Then there were the walkers and photographers of course.
I hope everyone has had a great weekend - I feel refreshed and ready to do some more renovating this week.
