We had a sudden trip back to Melbourne to visit my family.
Everything was okay thankfully, so we went down to Mornington and luckily could spend a day at the beach while we were there.
It is autumn in Tokyo, so it was nice to enjoy the warm spring weather in Mornington Peninsula!
My kids had a ball playing sand castles, and I also enjoyed the time to relax. I was thinking that finally I felt like I could relax for a good 10 minutes while my kids played. They must be getting old enough now where they can play in the one spot and not try to go in the water! (this was impossible when they were toddlers!)
If you are in Melbourne even for a few days, make sure you include a day trip to Mornington Peninsula. You will feel refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards!
