A Day in our Capital


It was up early this morning on a Saturday to take a drive to our Capital City:
MARVELOUS MELBOURNE

Miss Flowergarden had an interview for a Japanese Scholarship.
It was very exciting and she practised her Japanese all the way there.

After that, we just wandered around the city for a bit, and this is some of what my eyes did see
 
 
 
 
 
 

Then it was off for some Ice Skating.  I was shocked at how I'd aged since last time I'd done it.  I remember it being effortless, but I was holding onto the edge for dear life!  I even took a massive hit to the head before the end (ouch!).

Despite all, we had a lovely day out!

Looks like you had a fun day out (after the serious part). Could be a quilt design in that tie display. Hope your daughter gets good news.

I want to go to that bag shop. I love the sign, it would drag me in off the street. Was that a mosaic that looked like a quilt?
Hope niece did well at the interview, I'm sure she was well prepared and I wish her all the best.

I love that bag shop sign! It sounds like you had a great day. I hope your head doesn't still hurt!
