Mentone beach is the closest beach for us to get to and is one of many along the edge of Port Phillip Bay. This beach is popular with local residents who use it for walking their dogs, jogging or picnics. There weren't many people that afternoon maybe because it was overcast.

Notice the picnics basket? It is one of my own creations. A reproduction of a tradional scallop basket. It is strong and sturdy to take on car trips.
