ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PLACES

IS THIS HEAVEN OR WHAT????
This is the view I had at Dinnertime tonight.
Max and I went to one of our all time favouite places tonight. Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula. We have our favourite parking spot where we sit, talk and dream. We even come up here on some New Years Eve's as the view of all of the fireworks going off around Port Phillip Bay is spectacular. We just sit back with our glass (or glasses) of wine with some snacks and enjoy the show.
Tonight we had pizza and pepsi - yes I know so unhealthy but it is the end of the week.
What better place can you imagine to eat your pizza - nothing better than Murrays Lookout.
We went a little higher up the road to Chapmans Point to watch the sunset.
The Mornington Peninsula is a fabulous place to live and visit. Check out the Mornington Peninsula Tourism site and plan your next day trip or holiday.
I feel like I'm falling when I look at this shot but I so love the colours.

Thanks for looking at my little piece of Heaven.

cindy said...

What a view! It's gorgeous! I love the water too. I can only imagine sitting out there.

Angela Louise said...

What a beautiful view and what BEAUTIFUL photos Alison. Not everybody is as fortunate as you and me to live in a place they love so much. There is not a day that goes by that I don't appreciate where I live either. So many people seem desperate to move, move, move in search of something else. Sometimes a bit of contentment is what is needed I think. You certainly sound content...how lovely!

What a beautiful view! Perfect place for pizza and soda!
