The smell of those cheap sausages at Bunnings mid summer has left me retching outside the front entrance twice now.

In 38C heat it has to be the most evil smell.

Can't stand big commercial crowded beaches. My wee local beach - Raby Bay (7 min drive) is ideal for us, the kids can have a run around and splash in the water in relative safety.

Yeah me too. I now associate Bunnings with greasy minging cheap meat.

The locals swim at Raby Bay, it's absolutely fine. The end one is also a dog beach.

Didn't realise RB had a beach. All I've seen are McMansions on tiny blocks with a boat ramp at the end of an inch of grass.

Yeah well I can assure you I don't own one of the those McMansions. I only wish I had the money to be able to afford one lol.

An old friend lived there. Lovely house inside but I'd feel claustrophobic living there.

Yeah it's too structured for me, love visiting the beaches but I wouldn't live there, much prefer down the road at the Thompson's Beach area in Victoria Point, it's more established, older houses.
