Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week, as promised, the Terrace Houses on the beachfront at Grange.
there's a noticeboard nearby telling us the history of some of the Grange beachfront area, the Terraces are right there in the centre.
the picture, an original photo.
"The Marines" Grange
Completed in 1884, only 8 of the planned 24 apartments were ever built. These buildings remain unique as the only Victorian three-storey terraces on the sea-front in Australia. Originally the stone used in the building was rumoured to be from ships' ballast, but is now thought to be from around Dry Creek.

imagine having your breakfast coffee on that top balcony overlooking the ocean.
Quite stately aren't they?
renovations going on to two of the homes.
the front fence design matches the balcony railings, I think it's pretty.
long, lazy days watching the boats,
or the pines,
or the fishermen at the end of the jetty.
and here is that plant again.
