Still in the City

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: IMG_5858 (Medium)

There are the Souvenir shops for the tourist with; of course Ugg boots IMG_5859_edited-1 (Medium)

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.

Bad photo but the window was just beautiful old-fashioned items. The tiled floor in the reflection is the original for that arcade.

I stopped for a bite to eat

IMG_5829_edited-1 (Medium)The visitors booth was busy, think they were asking where they could find the ‘Cacti’ lady

IMG_5749 (Medium)

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.

Colourful display

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

IMG_5631 (Medium)

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

IMG_5646 (Small)

or simply just sit wherever you like

If you bring you own bike, don’t forget the spare wheel…

IMG_5612_edited-1 (Small)

There are trains………well…..she’ll be comin round the corner when she comes

IMG_5614 (Small)

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.

or……welllll….no….guess not

Hello wise owl

IMG_5869_edited-1 (Medium)

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • I have a bigger fantasy–that WordPress would have a competition so that the winner could invite 20 blogging friends to a resort for a weekend, and WordPress would pay for all the flights and accommodations. The hard part would be picking only 20! I’m on a first-name basis with bloggers from around the world, yet in 3 years of blogging the closest I’ve come to a “meeting” is talking on the phone for a half hour with a blogging friend right here in Ohio.

    • Thank you John I am glad people are enjoying my day as It was just one of those wonderful fun times of ‘seek and thy shall find’ kinda thing
