Too many photos to put in one post.
And too many things to talk about.
So I'll be brief.
After our stop in Ballarat we spent a few days in Melbourne
with a small side trip to the snow
but more on that later.
I haven't been to Melbourne since about 1976 and was very excited to be there again.
We spent the first day exploring and getting our Melbourne legs.
Next day met up with family and took in the Dreamworks exhibition.
Day 3 sister, daughter, niece and I went to the snow.
Where we played.
Day 4 consisted of eating, more exploring and finding an old friend.
Here are some touristy shots from the first couple of days.
When we walked and walked, crossed bridges, climbed aboard a very squashy tourist tram, lunched at Young and Jackson - just downstairs from where Chloe lives, and I got to say "meet you under the clocks"
Getting around was easy.
We were spoilt for choice when it came to transport.
We explored laneways and arcades.
And um shopped
a bit more...........
We explored again at night.
Looking at all the places with their party lights on.
And even the street art put on a show.
So much happening and so much to see.
We felt quite comfortable and safe walking around at night. Something that doesn't happen in Sydney.
