Ok, it was on our own. We lunched beachside and delightful lunch it was.
A friend of R's lived in this apartment block. We visited once. Above Ingrid's place lived the celeb Mary Hardy, who later shot herself in her bath. Bless Mary. She was the comedian sister of Frank Hardy, who wrote Power Without Glory, which should be compulsory reading for all Melburnians.
Generally, I don't think much of modern architecture, but doesn't this example look ok? I would not mind living there, not that I could afford it. The streetscape is preserved, without some glaring wart. Across the road is the beach.
General beach photo, taken as we discussed whether we were in Albert Park or Middle Park. The person or thing that you are taking a photo of never sees anything, but there is always someone who is watching your extending lens. The Newport gas fired power station smoke stack is dominant. It is more or less an emergency electricity generator. It is not really a smoke stack, more a gas burn off stack. The top of it expels and burns gas, so it is alight with flame when the power station is operating.
