Portobello Promenade

 Sunday was a total reprieve from all the bad weather. The sun was shining, there was some blue sky and blissfully, no rain or wind. So Millie and I grabbed her ball and headed for the beach.

Many of the locals had the same idea and there were lots out walking the promenade and along the beach with their dogs. It was delightful, and as you can see Millie loves the beach and her ball.

 Portobello is only 3 miles from the city centre and contains the town's only beach. The suburb has gone through it's seedy days, but I am told is on the up and up now, and is quite delightful. The area contains a mixture of Victorian and Georgian architecture and some delightfully quirky buildings.

There is even a pub called the Espy- right there on the promenade which brings up thoughts of Melbourne and the famous or more likely infamous Espy on the Esplanade at St Kilda. Have to go visit there!

Great spot to be living for the next month, 'cos I love walking on the beach too.
