The heat brings me to thinking of beach holidays or even permanent beach living. I've been fascinated with a beautiful new beach house that was built in Carrickalinga a few years ago.
Built by Pauline Hurren Architects, it makes a feature of Basket Range stone.
While more modest, this open plan beach home at Aldinga has some spectacular views.
It's for sale here

Bring on summer and relaxing days spent in bathers, sarong and a floppy hat... and of course a good book or two, a glass of wine, some seafood on the BBQ.......
