As the days get a little longer and a tiny bit warmer (but no less wet)
and my thoughts turn to Spring,
it has been nice looking back on my Winter holiday with my loved ones,
revisiting old places
and exploring new ones.
Below are the shots from the final day in Melbourne.
My sister and I found an old friend.
Someone we hadn't seen since we were much smaller.
I seem to remember that we didn't have as much trouble climbing him way back then.
Our limbs may be longer, but they're much stiffer.
Then it was time for a tram ride to St Kilda.
We found a communal garden,
Wandered past the Palais Theatre and Luna Park.
I was on a mission.
Daughter forgot her jacket,
She borrowed mine,
I borrowed hubby's,
Hubby was frozen.
I used that as an excuse to buy myself a new jacket.
Makes perfect sense.
I needed it too because after that we walked down to the beach.
Back to Acland Street for hot chocolate.
And a choice of music.
I would like to come back on a sunny day and play at Luna Park.
But I might give this a miss.
More night time exploring.
One last look at China Town.
And I discovered a religion I would like to follow.
Melbourne - July 2014
Hope you enjoyed my final Melbourne post . We are returning from our little trip to South Australia tonight, and soon I shall take you on a tour of Adelaide. But after I get some sleep and upload the photos.
