When does an outer-city suburb become an inner-city suburb!.



It's been at least ten years since we last visited Mindarie Keys, I was astounded at the intensity of development that's sprung up since then and is still in progress, with freeways and train services struggling to keep up with the pace. It's when you see outer-city suburbs like this spreading so fast that you realize just how much land there is available, and it's clear that the further away from the city the more you get for your dollar! So many huge homes around the marina itself. A complete change of environment for the high percentage of English homeowners here..   


How about your own private beach below! Got me to thinking that if these outer suburbs keep spreading as fast as they are, at some point will my suburb which is 20km (15 minutes) from the city become an inner-city suburb :) Doesn't look too bad for a winters day! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  1. The water looks inviting.

    We have satellite communities that were amalgamated into the larger city years ago- hence geographically we have a very large city, though realistically a lot of that land is rural.

  9. If there is a large English settlement here, I bet they have found paradise. This place looks so beautiful. So many big cities see this kind of growth but, it seems like here in the states the trend is starting to move the other way. People want to be more in the urban center with access to public transportation.

  12. A paradise for those with the resources to afford it! Beautiful shots, Grace. Ocala is growing, also, mostly due to an influx of retirees from the northern states and people fleeing the crime and crowding of south Florida. Which means our little bit of paradise is looking more and more like a corner of hell...especially in the winter!

  13. Perth seems determined to extend itself north and south and not inland.

  16. It's nice to live on the water. As you know we crammed into our boat for 20 years in Waikiki. So looking at boats makes me nostalgic. Life is a funny thing. I wouldn't want to say this in public, but now I have a (VERY TINY) strip of my own beach and a small dock which is waiting the row boat I shall pilot around the lagoon when the sun is low behind Mt. Tam....

  22. MacMansions. Our cities are getting too big. We should have more satellite towns.
