Just picture it – an endless beach
Replanted grasses by the road
Car park spaces within reach
Peaceful setting, relaxed mode.
Barely one soul in the sea
We’re plumped on rugs with snacks and cake
Dog owners can’t let pets run free
Late afternoon – the rays abate.
Christmas here is not log fires
Their chilly wind is my warm breeze
December heat this theme inspires;
Ice creams alone allowed to freeze!
Australia – land of open spaces
Seaside crowds seem quite unknown
This beach could welcome many faces
But we almost have it on our own!
