- boo hoo our last night
28.12.2006 - 29.12.2006 20 °C
Our last full day in Melbourne - which was a real pity - Melbourne had really gotten under our skin - such a chilled relaxed city - somewhere we could imagine ourselves living to be honest. AND - the best coffee in the world is to be had in Melbourne - in my honest opinion!
We were up and about by around 9am (our latest lie in to date!) and we headed into the CBD again and caught the circle line tram (the free one!) around the city for a whirl wind city tour!
We were then meeting Fiona at Melbourne zoo with her daughter Milly. The weather had definately improved which was brilliant - we even were slapping on the suncream today as there was flesh exposed!
Melbourne Zoo was a good zoo but after you have visited Sinapore Zoo all others pale into insignifiance to be honest!
That evening we went out to St Kilda to meet up with Gill et al again for dinner on the beach side (Beachcombers) - this is where l had my first experience of Kangaroo steak - nice!
Really liked St Kilda - another reason we wished we were not leaving Melbourne already - would have loved to explore more and spend a day in the sunshine chilling out on the beach!
We headed into the city again to have a few drinks (well we had about 4 bottles of champange to be honest!) before l said goodbye to Gillian who l hadnt seen in a year and it would probably be another year before l see her again - better stop now lm getting tearful!
Loved Melbourne fantastic city - I WILL BE BACK!
