Lighthouse lookout

Tue 27th December 2011

Here we are at the lookout just beneath the lighthouse at the top of the hill. Great view!

What a strange face I’m pulling. No idea what’s going on there!

Occasionally we heard a loud crack, I thought it was thunder at first, but soon realised it was the sound of the waves hitting the rocks below.

 

A dip in the canal

Sun 25th December 2011

After our food had gone down, we decided it was warm enough for a little swim. The water was warm like a bath!

Swimming in salt water on Christmas Day, well I never. As you can see Matt still had his paper hat on!

 

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 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 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!

 

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!
