Port Phillip Bay opens into the open seas

Point Nepean and Point Lonsdale.

Just behind the trees on the left is where

the Moyne River converges with the sea.

Some of Tuesday’s BWs with a couple of extras.


The World War I gun emplacement and our means of ascending.

All those in the 30-40 years younger bracket did not

although maybe the first to bring greenery with us.

Point-Lonsdale_0667Decorations were hung.Point-Lonsdale_0670Our young helpers pause to admire the view.

Point-Lonsdale_0676This stretch of water is known as The Rip …

shallow and dangerous but the entry to Port Phillip Bay.

Point-Lonsdale_0685Definitely a setting for a marriage proposal! 🙂
