I will make this my last post of my City (for now). An eclectic view. One never knows what one will find when roaming around any City whether you are a tourist, newcomer or and old stayer, slices of life are everywhere… Shopping:
There are the Souvenir shops for the tourist with; of course Ugg boots
Don’t leave without an oversized letter to put…ummm…ummmm…somewhere?
Key rings, this is only one tiny area of them. But, I have to say when I travel I do buy key rings. My tip, buy two, they fall apart within a week.
Post cards, now them I like just in case my photos don’t turn out or I cannot upload them..yeh!
For those that are in the depths of winter, here is a memory of summer
Bad photo but the window was just beautiful old-fashioned items. The tiled floor in the reflection is the original for that arcade.
Babushka shop, every possible babushka you would every want..Pinocchio?
Man and girl babushka (I love the girl with the teapot)
Of course there are more Ugg boots
Sportsgirl with summer fun, It popped with fun, sun and pleasure…good advertising. It made me want to shop!…but I resisted
I stopped for a bite to eat
The visitors booth was busy, think they were asking where they could find the ‘Cacti’ lady
I found her at a ‘pop up shop’ called ‘A Prickly Affair’. She also trades at the Rose Street Market, 60 Rose Street Fitzroy on Sat and Sun.
The little cuties are 3D magnets
You could have some threading or waxing done…er…by a professional? Sorry, not by the look of the sign, won’t be going in there
You can hire a bike, these bike stations are all over the city…or
if you are a bit foot weary, take a seat in Federation Square and watch the tennis, football etc.
or relax on these lovely chairs in or out of the sun
or simply just sit wherever you like
If you bring you own bike, don’t forget the spare wheel…
There are trains………well…..she’ll be comin round the corner when she comes
Oh yes, here she is.
If you are feeling regal, royal, how do you do type of thing there are the coach rides. I did take one of these a long time ago with my grandson and I must say the clip clop of the hooves on the street and the echo between the buildings was a piece of magic to ones ears.
Hello wise owl
Where is your Mummy little one?
These two fellows are not for sale, they are rescued animals, beautifully kept and on display for the school holiday. I was excited to see owl. The funny thing was it was more adults than children ooo-ing and aaaaar-ing over the animals. One little girl about 3years old had a snake (very large for her size) draped around her neck, she was smiling as if she had just found gold, I noticed that is when the adults all stepped back 🙂
I took many more photos but have realised I can only bore you all for so long with my wanderings. WOW! I almost had a theme happening 😉
