The Bridgewater Bay With Tesalate, Australia – We came back to Melbourne in March for a few weeks holiday and had no idea we would end up here and not able to get back home to Indonesia. We had to do some online shopping for some clothes and essentials and amongst that we ordered a new Tesalate towel as we didn’t bring our Tesalate towels with us. We are super lucky to be isolating down on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia where we can still go to the beach to exercise including walking, swimming and surfing.

Our Tesalate, Phoenix Towel for Two – an extra large beach towel the size of a beach blanket is just perfect to take down to the beach for an icy wake up dip.

We love that the sand doesn’t stick to the towel so is perfect to pop our clothes on while we swim and to wrap ourselves up while we walk home. 

Even the double towel folds up small enough to pop into our suitcases and will be perfect for when we can travel again. Then, here are our memories at the Bridgewater Bay with Tesalate in Blairgowrie, Victoria:
