|Flinders Street Railway Station|
We've just returned from a wonderful little trip away, to catch up with our dear daughter.
In a short time we packed in a lot, seeing the sights, shopping, catching up with friends for lunch at an Italian restaurant and walking for miles. The little French cafe where we had le petit dejeuner on Sunday morning was hidden down one of the laneways - helped having our daughter show us some of the hidden gems in the City.
I love the old Terrace houses with their fancy ornate ironwork
The beautiful gardens, parks and elegant Victorian era buildings in leafy streets make this City, a desirable place to visit.
The first morning we boarded the historic tram which rattled and grinded along the tracks - this is a great way to see around the City and the overall charm and atmosphere made it feel like we were back in the olden days.
Why you would shop at the supermarket?... when you see the wonderful fresh produce at this shopping mecca. Queen Victoria Markets has been the heart and soul of the City for more than a century.
The produce markets, overflowed with the seasons bounty of brightly coloured fruit and vegetables.
This Frenchman was a great salesperson - le fromage was so good and after having a little taste test, we had to buy the perfectly ripe brie, a blue and a gouda cheese, and take back to the apartment. I wished we could of stayed another day as the time went oh so quickly.
Wishing you a happy new week
