Colourful Doors in Mornington

“Smell the sea and feel the sky. Let your soul & spirits fly.” – Van Morrison

The Mornington Peninsula is only 30 minutes away from where I live so this is a place to go when the weather’s fine. These iconic beach boxes in Mornington is a symbol of summer. It is still spring here in Melbourne but it is more than 25 degrees so definitely feeling the summer vibe.

Mornington Peninsula #4

Please click image to enlarge.

There are different styles of doors. There are some Bright and vibrant ones.

All along the coastline you will find these Bathing Boxes … nothing spectacular, just a shed with no water nor electricity. But these rainbow-coloured boxes have provided a lovely backdrop for young and old alike … for tourists or locals too as these are very Instagrammable.

There are also Patriotic ones with the Iconic Australian flag

There’s the dull and drab ones too.

“WE DREAM IN COLOURS FROM THE SEA.” – UNKNOWN

And some unique ones too.

        You were unlucky then as we get plenty of them – just not many in November which to my mind is probably our dullest month!

          Haha bad timing. But lovely autumn trees, so that made up for the dull weather.

    Lots of fun colours on these. I always marvel when I see these because we really have nothing like it here.

      Oh yes they do! But some people don’t have anything better to do and they vandalise the boxes. Thanks for the comment Janet!

    I love how bright and colorful thee are. It’s interesting that some people have chosen to build bigger units or perhaps expend the ones they have.
