Port Phillip Bay stretched around on its eastern side with one perfect beach after another. For me, the only disappointment was being a bay, the sea was like swimming in a lake, flat with no surf.
I passed a children’s playground by Melbourne’s Albert Park Beach, partly covered with a UV roof. On last checking, Australia had the highest skin cancer rate in the world (Canada second) so I discovered most playgrounds equipped with tent like roofs. In an effort to stem this frightening statistic, most schools enforced the: no hat, no playrule which meant no child could play in the sun without a hat.
