Helen and Randall on the road

A bit about our adventures 2011-2012

Monday 5th September – Melbourne

Woke up just in time to catch Natasha squeaking out of the door to get to work, and then packed up the car, dropped it off at the rental office and took a taxi to Flinders St station where after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing and general misdirection we found the left luggage (it’s actually the customer information office, for future reference).

Breakfast of Kings (pint of lager and a ham, cheese and mustard toastie) at the Ponyfish Island cafe, a tiny cafe perched on one of the starlings of the footbridge…thanks for the recommendation, Wilson!:

Spotted some black swans and mused on the philosophical implications of this:

…before heading up the Eureka Tower Skydeck on the 88th floor to get a panoramic view of Melbourne…

and said ‘thanks but no thanks’ to ‘The Edge’, a glass drawer that suspends you 3 metres out, high over the city, so you can peer down through the glass floor. Erk.:

After a wander back over the river and through Fed Square:

we hopped on the free tram loop to see a bit of the city then hopped off again near Southern Cross station to collect our train tickets for the next leg of the journey. From there we took another tram to St Kilda where we grabbed a burger:

and just managed to catch the sun setting over the sea:

before perusing the cake shops on Acland Street:
