We've been exploring the Peninsula today, on the back of a cool change. In the morning we visited Mornington, how apt. We had a walk round the pier... ... and were pretty excited to see a stingray. Or maybe a manta ray, we don't really know much about fish. The inviting-looking beach at Mornington was driving the boys crazy because we'd not brought swimmers or towels with us and no one could get in the water. So after we'd gone home for lunch, and despite the coolish weather, we drove off in search of a surf beach. We tried Flinders only to find it was dangerous (crumbling cliffs, strong undertows and no lifeguards), then backtracked to Point Leo, which turned out to be perfect. The boys had a ball riding waves on their boogie boards while I shivered on the sand. I only got Cherub out of the waves by telling him we could go there every day if he liked. And once the heat wave arrives, I will be in the surf with the boys on my boogie board.
