For Sallyanne's journal, about what home means to you, I decided to do some wishful thinking. In 15 or so years, when we can retire, wouldn't it be nice to move down the beach?
My father-in-law has a holiday house in Ocean Grove, southeast of Geelong. We love going there for a mini break, and are often there between Xmas and New Year. We even considered moving down there when the kids were young - but I didn't want to leave Melbourne at the time.
Ocean Grove has become very popular now, and populous. But somewhere down on the Bellarine Peninsula would be lovely; sell our Melbourne home for a good price and buy a few acres not far from the coast. Nice to have a dream...
So I decided to have a bit of a go at the dream retirement home. Since it's my dream, it must have a HUGE art room where I can just play all day. And a decent kitchen.
It's nice to have a dream... 💜
