I must just about be the only Aussie who doesn't enjoy the beach. We have countless miles of sandy beaches that are magnets every weekend, public holiday and school holiday no matter what the weather. We have champion swimmers, champion sailors and champion surfers. We have birds that annually fly from Alaska to spend the summer here on the beaches. Most of our cities are on the coast. But me? I'd rather stay home. I really don't see the attraction of salty water, sunburn, sand and searing wind.
But I look happy enough to be on the beach in this picture. At this stage I was the only child so no siblings to play with yet.
