After a frantic lot of soup making, spaghetti freezing and various other ways of processing and freezing tomatoes, but I am not complaining about our humongous crop of Toms, also a day at art, watercolour poppies,
my teacher tells me to just keep  practising...
It was great to get to Melbourne and see our youngest daughter.To stay in her wee apartment ( look out the window and think that maybe be you were in France, the courtyard below, complete with fountains, unfortunately the neighbouring apartment's, was  such a lovely peaceful view)
We had such lovely weather, almost a little hot for us sometimes!!! We were shown lots of pretty places, had a picnic in the gardens, daughter and hubby had a day at the Grand Prix, I opted to catch the train into the city and visit the art gallery, it was amazing, time went all too quickly, the ceiling in the foyer is all stained glass and very beautiful.

A very touching visit to the Melbourne Shrine of Rememberance, it was so quiet and tranquil, the statues were beautiful, we loved this one especially.

there was a beautiful verse on the plinth
We had a very hot and sunny walk from Brighton beach to StKilda, I took a couple of dips along the way and the water was oh so warm, the beach huts are so cute...

This one had such beautifully painted seagulls..and somehow the colours of the hut remind me of icecream...?

We had a couple of days  going up the Great Ocean Road.
We were awe inspired by these ...amazing
This had been sculpted by wind and weather into what looks like a castle turret...it was all quite  magical and majestic.
I am thinking that this may need to be a 2 part record of our trip as its getting very very late and Mr computer and I have had a few hitches and glitches,time to packup for the evening methinks.
