Yesterday we all (me, husband, daughter and her husband and two grandchildren)headed off into the city of Melbourne for a day of shopping, oohhing and aahhing over Christmas decorations, wandering up and down streets and alleyways, eating and adventure!! We arrived reasonably early and parked in the Art Centre car park, had a wander around the Southbank Sunday market, then to Australia on Collins for coffee (He Who Works is soooo fussy about his coffee) and a muffin.
Looking up the old Shot Tower into the centre of the dome in Melbourne Central.
Standing under the clock, looking up.
Towering reflections! Don't you just love the way you can see reflections in the buildings in the city?
The golden bees on the side of the Eureka Tower.
Flinders St Railway Station, the copper dome is gorgeous isn't it?
More reflections, this time glowing in the golden windows! The left of the photo is real, the right is a reflection, cool isn't it?
A fish eye view of the Arts Centre from 88 floors above.
Ryan and Caitlin (he who was going to stay down with me - traitor!) standing right at the point of the building!
John and Bec's feet standing on the sill, good job that glass is thick!!
A pensive Caitlin, taking in the magnificent view....................
