Well the holiday is over...for my SiL that is. No she didn't leave by sea if you're looking at the picture below but I thought it was a great way for you to see the city skyline.
I also thought I'd post a few photos of a tour through some of the streets of Melbourne. If you're a recent visitor to my blog then you won't have seen some of my old post photos...Melbourne has such a variety of things to see and do, its difficult to know what to include. If you want to see some more then type Melbourne into the search bar to the right for some of my previous posts.
Everytime I look at the skyline it seems to change...but I suppose that's usual with a vibrant ever changing city.
As well as the modern skyscrapers there are the old treasures.
The South Bank is a must for any foodies. There are so many fantastic Restaurants
to choose from....walk along the bank of the Yarra River and decide which to sample. You'll not be disappointed.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground or MCG as it's known has be featured when showing Melbourne. It's in the centre of this photo.
It plays (literally) such a large role in so many sporting events, not just cricket. The total capacity of the MCG is approximately 100,000. The MCG was first surveyed in 1861 by MCC committeeman Robert Bagot, who changed the ground’s configuration into what is today’s conventional oval. It previously was an irregular hexagon with a band rotunda in the northern corner.
And then of course like any major city there's the people...
With so much walking I'm sure a little afternoon tea would be a treat...so off we went to the Hopetoun Tea Rooms for a little refreshment. (Psst...by the way it's a great place to take Mum for Mother's Day)
Who could resist?
But then they have been established since 1892, so they know what they're doing.
After more shopping, eating, drinking and sightseeing, foot sore and shattered we headed home. At this stage I forgot to take more photos...there's only so much fiddling you can do with your arms full!
So I'll have to leave you here and get on with the day...Muffin hasn't been well for the last week or so, but she's gruffing and ready to go this morning...^..^...obviously the vet's tablets have done the trick!
Have a great week and I'll be back soon with some more of our trips.
It's a little chilly out there so wrap up cosy this morning ~ but the sun's still shining though...yay :D
