In the 1970s I used to live in Carrum - a bayside suburb of Melbourne - down near the south coast of Victoria (Au). In those days my high-school son and I would load my boat up with SCUBA gear, hitch up to our HT Holden V8, and drive a leisurely hour or so down to Phillip Island and spend a few wonderful hours in that corner of paradise.You may have noticed that those days were 40 years ago. You would not believe how things have changed!
