AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Pearl Beach Resort

What was once a restaurant in Dromana, with views of Port Phillip Bay, has now been converted to an office for selling the yet to be constructed Pearl Beach Resort, a new up market project in Dromana.

Progress with some style
Glamour in a coastal town
Not everyone's thrilled

Linking to Weekend in Black and White

Hmmm. I'm pretty sure I'd be one of those people not so thrilled.

I think it would look good as a restaurant. As an office it looks wrong. I have to admit to not liking the idea of "Resorts" where ! live, so I'm not surprised people are not pleased.

I bet they aren't!

Earlier this week you showed us a church converted to a restaurant, now a restaurant converted to a 'real-estate' office. There seems a step too many in here, somehow.

Good contribution to the meme, though Gemma.

I know that feeling - of wanting to keep a beloved coastal village small. Progress isnt always an improvement.

It's strange how we all resent change. And how quickly we get used to it.

Monica S Engell said...

Great and interesting post you show here!

Things change so quickly. When we first moved here there were hardly any businesses between our town and the two on either side of the main different now.
