I have been a resident of Grovedale for the past seven years. As a child, I lived with my mother and my sister in Geelong, and have many fond memories of pending my summer holidays at Eastern Beach.
Having lived in Melbourne for many years as an adult, and being lovers of the beach, my partner and I would regularly visit the Geelong and Surf Coast region. We finally decided to make the move to Grovedale in 2011.
What I like about living in Grovedale is the people; you can always have a friendly chat with someone (even if you don’t know them!) at the local shops.
However, I suppose the thing I like most about living in Grovedale is its proximity to the coast; close enough to be easily accessible, but far enough away to be able to avoid the holiday crowds.
Photography has been a passion of mine for many years. I work as a nurse in a busy Melbourne hospital, so photography gives me the opportunity to unwind and have some time-out from society.
Living in Grovedale gives me easy access to, and the opportunity to explore and photograph our amazing coastline. The great thing about exploring and photographing the coast is that it is such a dynamic environment, and there is always something different to see.
