~~~~~

In the past few years we have visited many

well known places and some off the beaten track placess

all of which would fit this challenge.

However,  after some deliberation I decided to focus

on Melbourne, our state capital, and until the early 1900s

the site of our Federal Parliament.

Used to be known as ‘Fairy Penguins’ now renamed

‘Little Penguins’ at Melbourne Aquarium

Burke Street Mall busker.

 

Prince’s Bridge over the Yarra

We took a carriage ride around Victoria (Vancouver Island)

last year, still haven’t taken one around Melbourne.

After sailing from Geelong on a ferry trial,

late August 2018, this was the view as we arrived

at Melbourne and sailed up the Yarra River

and under West Gate Bridge.

For tennis fans.

Rod Laver Arena, in Melbourne Park,

home of the Australian Open since 1988…

and where we recently attended

Hugh Jackman’s Concert.

Melbourne Post Office

Melbourne Skyline from Williamstown Marina.

Couldn’t decide between BW or…

…or colour.

So decided to leave both in.

a  slightly over exposed Bourke St. Mall…

…in December a few years back.

I really do dislike it when I have to  say…

…that I have no idea what this flower is,

except that it can be found…

in

Geelong Botanic Gardens,

Victoria, Australia.

~~~~~

gourmand

a person who enjoys eating and often eats too much.

I could often used the word ‘gourmand’

to describe my eating habits…

at the start

of a guided tour/holiday.

Usually by the first morning stop…

…the sight off food is making me ill and

normal eating habits

quickly return.
