R is for Rye...
(continuing my series on the Mornington Peninsula)
Rye is another coastal town on Port Phillip Bay.
Of course there are the necessary shops,
and the necessary boat sheds.
But I am going to focus on other features.
At first, the northern view from the beach (in the first photo) looks much like my Dromana world.
But look south, and you see this chunky headland - sloping to the sea like Anthony's Nose ridge near my Dromana beach.
(But no roadway round the water's edge here!)
And at the base of the headland, tucked into the cliff, is this replica lime kiln, remembering early days on the peninsula when lime burning for building construction in Melbourne was a prime industry here.
This is the walkway round the cliff.
This is a portion of the cliff face.
And then there are the wonders of Rye Back Beach on the opposite side of the peninsula on Westernport Bay.
Like a secret coastal world of tiny streams and mountains and valleys.
a world in a beach of sands
a world of wonder
Like a beach wonderland!
