Melbourne with Ann & Frank

Aussie the dog
We had a wonderful day yesterday in Melbourne city with friends Ann & Frank who were over here visiting family from WA.  We met at the Crown Casino and meandered  aimlessly around Southbank alongside the Yarra River.  Lunch was at Othello’s, one of the many riverside restaurants at the precinct, followed by a quick stroll around the CBD.  We parted from them late afternoon after afternoon tea at the Casino and caught the tram back to Southern Cross Station in time to catch the Bendigo train back to Lancefield arriving home about 6.15pm.  We are getting to be seasoned travellers in the Melbourne Transport System.

Today we drove over to Kilmore  and explored the local shops and again enjoyed lunch at Wallings out in the gardens. 
 This afternoon we have to go over to Gisborne for Bill to visit the dentist.  He has cracked a tooth and lost his filling so he will be in the chair today, the dentist has his claw hammer ready and I guess we will pay his next couple of months rent on his practice.  I booked my flight home yesterday for the 17th March, hopefully Jess will have had the baby and be settled in at home by then.  I am looking forward to lots of cuddles with the new little one.
Camped at the weekend in Brooks Cutting Reserve
 It is also my youngest son’s birthday today, he is 40, what happened to that cute little blonde hair blue eyed boy?
