Sun 25th December 2011

What to do on Christmas morning? Go for a wander on the beach of course!

A beach walk with the Cleland family on Christmas morning. Slightly different to the usual Hobbs Christmas morning…

Min’s family do this every year and I can see why. Their local beach is beautiful and it was deserted!

 

Luna Park at St Kilda

Sun 18th December 2011

Today we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and ventured down to St Kilda, a seaside surburb of Melbourne.

Matt says...

St Kilda is a little bit like Blackpool, only much sunnier! It is a little bit tacky in places but the beach is nice!

 
Claire

Claire says...

St Kilda has a mini theme park called Luna Park, we didn’t go in but couldn’t resist taking this photo!

 

We survived The Edge!

Sat 17th December 2011

The Edge is a glass cube which pushes you out from the Skydeck, suspending you 300 metres above the city. It has a real glass floor so you can see what’s going on beneath!

Matt

Matt says...

280 meters down looking through a glass floor. It’s a long way down!

 
Claire

Claire says...

When you enter the glass is opaque. Once we were suspended the glass suddenly became clear and it certainly gave me a fright! Still found time to pose though!

 

Yummy cakes

Fri 16th December 2011

The Laneways are full of scrummy looking cafes . This particular one specialised in French pastries and the window display looked good enough to eat!

Matt

Matt says...

We found the bestest(sic) shop in the world! I love cake! You almost feel bad eating them, they look so good! Taste good too!

The Laneways

Fri 16th December 2011

Today we explored the laneways in Melbourne city centre. They’re a huge network of cobbled street, lined with cafes and boutique shops.

Matt

Matt says...

There’s a big cafe culture in Melbourne. One of the reasons it reminds me of Brighton.

 
Claire

Claire says...

Loved this, just like Brighton they have a unique charm about them. Great for Christmas presents too (wish we could post everything back)!
