Port Melbourne Beach Walk (9 am)

I thought I’d have a bit of fun, so I have included an illustration. It is my interpretation, is not according to scale and blah blah blah as per usual disclaimers… Let me know if the illustration helps…

Please click on the illustration and images to enlarge.

The order of the images is according to when I photograph them, starting from the bottom left.



Boats at Station Pier. On the left is the Spirit of Tasmania (a ferry that sails to and fro Port Melbourne and Tasmania), and on the right is The World (a cruise ship)


Ramp for cars going onto the Spirit of Tasmania


Port Melbourne Yacht Club


Another pier further along the beach, which is popular with anglers


The pier again. The Spirit of Tasmania started to move, and got into my picture


Shades of a playground along the beach


Beach volleyball courts were not used, as it was still early. I suspect this section of the beach was being cleaned, judging by the sand…


A memorial along the beach. A close-up of the plaque is shown on the right


Walking is hard work, so a trip to the local cafe is well-deserved


Back to where I started. The sculpture titled “Destination” celebrates the history of Station Pier and the development of Beacon Cove (the development along the waterfront)

A terrific post and you are so clever to include a sketch. The ferry looks striking with its red paint.
