Melbourne gardens

Fri 16th December 2011

We visited Melbourne Botanical Gardens today. They were beautiful, bursting with many different flowers and stretched on and on, marking the edge of the grass with their colourful patterns.

Melbourne has some stunning gardens. They also have nice weather too (not like Sydney at the moment).

We thought you’d like this picture mum and David might too!

 

Beautiful Melbourne

Fri 16th December 2011

Tonight we were meeting friends for dinner but wandered for a while along the Southbank first. This is a gorgeous shot of the city.

Another day, another city! This time Melbourne. Imagine London and Brighton mixed together, that’s what Melbourne is like. I’m a big fan!

Claire says...

The Southbank is a very pretty walk along the river in the centre of Melbourne. It reminds me a lot of London, with it’s swanky bars and cafes.

 

Merry Christmas Melbourne

Tue 13th December 2011

We’ve seen these flags in Sydney so they must be popular in Australia at Christmas time. Still feels weird seeing them with blue sky in the background!

Matt says...

It’s too hot for Christmas! I’m so confused, it feels like July not December!

Birthday boy!

Mon 12th December 2011

Everyone deserves a cake on their 30th. We don’t have a kitchen to cook one in, so yummy muffins will have to do. Pretty candles though – yay!

Matt

Matt says...

Claire bought a 3 and a 0 by mistake for the cakes. It’s easy to confuse really, they are right next to 2 and 1. I love cake!

Thank you everyone for making my 30th birthday special! Like me!

Sunset on the bridge

Mon 12th December 2011

As we were finishing our climb we caught a glimpse of the most beautiful sunset behind the clouds. Very impressive at 134 metres above sea level!

Matt

Matt says...

Unfortunately you aren’t allowed to take your own camera up the bridge (as they like to charge you extortionate prices for their own when you get to the bottom). The views were fantastic. We climbed up at a perfect time, just before the sunset!
