Too soon it was our last day on holiday in Rye on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. The weather had warmed up and we spent the day on the beach. Bernie's family (our SIL) own a beach house and a beach box at Rye Beach. We couldn't stay in their beach house because it is an airbnb too and it was rented out. We hadn't originally planned to go there until bushfires made it necessary to change our plans. Anyway we could use the beach box, where everything you need for a BBQ on the beach is stored. Lots of friends called in too. The boys went out in the motor boat to catch some fish for lunch.

Just a short stroll to the beach and a kayak for the boys to have fun in.
The beach was very crowded on this day. It was still Christmas and school holiday time.
There is no big surf as it is part of Port Phillip Bay. But is extremely suitable for children.
People as far as you can see. We have been here when there has been no one on the beach at all.
Uncle David and Banjo brought their paints and set up in the shade.
