Last day in Melbourne

We decided to go to a swimwear shop I had found out about from my Melbourne friend and this involved catching trams and walking to Fitzroy. This is a pretty old but funky part of town with sculpture in the streets and around shops and buildings.

We went to the shop but on the walk on the way I took copious photos of buildings, railings, fences, patterns and I will show you most of them here.

Patterns and Graffiti

All day it blew a cool wind but it was fun looking around Brunswick Street, in Fitzroy – enjoyed the funk!

On our last night we met up with some Perth mates over for the weekend and went out to dinner at Universal, in Lygon Street. I had the most amazing Pizza – small – cut into four pieces with the works plus jalapenos. I drank a Fat Yak beer and was completely full and satisfied. After dinner we went to the famous Brunetti’s and had coffee and cake.  I had a beautiful hot chocolate.  Yummo!

We did not stay out very late – we had to get up at about 3:30 in the morning to return home. After our ride home, we walked past a group of taxis and talked about availability for a 4:30am  ride to the airport.  Sorted that and he arrived at 4:15am – perfect.  Once ensconced in the Qantas Club we had a cuppa and toast ready to fly home at 6:30am.

On the flight into Perth I saw a rainbow out of my window. A lovely welcome back, considering the storms that had plagued Perth while we were away.image
