Winter Surf At Number Sixteen Surf Beach, Australia – Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has ordered Metropolitan Melbourne back into lockdown, after a surge in coronavirus cases across the city’s suburbs. Unlike the statewide lockdown earlier in the year, this one does not include most of regional and rural Victoria. But it does include the “interface” areas where Melbourne meets the country, and the Mitchell Shire, centred around Seymour.

Although there are zero active COVID-19 cases on the Morninton Peninsula, the area is currently inlockdown which will hopefully stop any cases coming down here with the Melbourne holiday makers.

And this time we went to visit the ‘Number Sixteen’ Surf Beach in Rye on Mornington Peninsula for an exercise and play. we went there early, around 7.30am. It was a 50 minutes walk from home.

And, in our break of exercise we spent an hour of our time watching all the local surfers. Here’s a video of all the crazy locals surfers in winter had an ocean party.

The beach was just gorgeous. It was fun just to be there and walk along the beach. Then, we all finished the morning exercise with an incredible hot coffee and hot chocolate at 16 Beach General Store with a little street library.

Wishing health and safety to you all during these extraordinary times.
