Hubs and I have decided to do some long walks over the weekends (by long I mean anything between 5 and 10km BTW) and last Saturday we had a great day exploring the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. The weather was sensational, and after walking into town from home, we wandered around for a few hours, enjoying the sunshine (we both got sun burnt) and each other’s company.
! (I’ve been wanting this photo taken for AGES!)
Turkish Delight! Yum!
We checked out the local flora and fauna…
And played around a bit too!
We then headed to our favourite place in Chinatown, Shanghai Dumplings, and stuffed ourselves silly for $20!
(I know I look a bit spaced out, but I was sunburnt and tired from all our walking!)
And washed them down with a couple of Tsingtaos!
We then headed off to Pellegrini’s
(a “Melbourne Institution”) for a coffee
And we finished off a big day out by seeing Sherlock Holmes
at the movies, which, by the way was a great movie! It’s lots of fun with a bit of mystery and mayhem. Really really enjoyed it.
All in all and amazing day with Hubs, exploring this great city we live in, and enjoying it while we can!
