For my birthday we went away on a short getaway to our favourite beachside town. What I'm really drawn to about this place is the preservation of the original mid-century beach bungalows which are so delightfully 'Aussie'. From the curbless roads, to the all purpose milk bar come convenience store to the fact that you can walk in any direction and find a beach always makes me feel as though I'm reliving my own childhood holidays. There is a certain quiet and stillness about the place which I can't remember ever feeling since growing up and becoming an adult with rush and responsibility. It is a breathe of fresh air and a step back into the past that is so comforting and familiar in a way I can't even describe. It is truly my happy place.
