Melbourne moments

On a recent trip to ‘sunny’ Melbourne, we visited Brighton Beach, listened to Mark Seymour in Federation Square and took in some sights. We didn’t JUST go shopping!

Joys of cycling (5)

On yesterday’s morning cycle, I took a route that follows our South East Freeway, more or less between the ‘burbs of Greenslopes and Annerley. There’s plenty of hideous graffiti vandalism to observe, but there are some nice pieces of artwork along the way. But first of all, I passed a homeless person in a hammock. It looks pretty blissful, but it did shower during the night…

And near the railway station, we have a thong fence in the making! Now, for the uninitiated, thongs in Australia have always been footwear – known as flip flops in some countries. And increasingly so here, as well (and not just because we have lots of Kiwis – New Zealanders – living here now, and we’re always visiting NZ and can’t talk about thongs without cracking people up). Just so you don’t think we wear these things on our nether regions. We have that sort of thong too. Say no more.
