9 times out of 10 when you mention Frankston people seem to give you an odd look. Yes it has had a bad name in the past, and there are still some colourful characters, but it has obviously gone up market. I'm pretty certain in 5 years it will be the place to be, and anyone living there will be the envy of others. Fortunately for me I'm there every fortnight or so with Kylie, sitting on the beach, having coffee and wondering around the shops or going out for a meal.

Where else in Melbourne do you have a very nice beach, a pier to walk on, lots of shops of all types, cinemas (both budget and full price), restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs? The worst part? paying for parking - even on a Saturday afternoon - even the city is free.

The sea festival on this weekend added a market, more food, a sea rescue demonstration, and the best fireworks and fireshow display I have ever seen.

I don't understand what's wrong with the place, then again 9 out of 10 people probably haven't spent any real time there.
