Balaclava Station did not get funding in the state budget for an upgrade, but what it has got is the person who posts a 'thought of the day' at the station each day. Today's was not the 'thought' that most appealed to me, but I love that it happens at all.

I love this stand of casaurina trees in a carpark in Frankston - a fine demonstration of water sensitive urban design [wsud] This approach treats stormwater runoff before it makes its way to Port Phillip Bay.
Members of the Tree Reference Group at the City of Port Phillip said they would like to see more examples of different configurations of trees, rather than a 'staple gun' approach, and I thought this was a great example.
Port Phillip Council is reviewing its kerbside trading guidelines. The guidelines discourage the use of outdoor gas heaters. Fairfield Boathouse offers throws to customers. I had heard about this practice in Copenhagen, but it is the first example I have seen in Melbourne. I would like to see this trend take off in Port Phillip.
