After the rowing we headed to Merricks Beach on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, where we stayed the night with some friends at their beach house.
Our walk/run on the beach in the morning started in sunny conditions, progressed through drizzle and ended up with overcast but fine weather.
By lunchtime however, the sun was out and we went to see the Sculpture Prize Exhibition at Montalto Winery. This is an annual acquisition award for outdoor sculpture.
At least three of the pieces had equestrian themes, which is understandable given Red Hill is in the heart of horsey-country.
This piece by Melissa Cussell was my favourite. Mirrored poles among the trees. It reminded me of seeing pukamani (burial) poles in the bush in the Tiwi Islands, but instead of a pole reflecting the life and character of the person whose grave it marks through painted designs, in this case it literally reflects a person.
