Hi Mum,

Today is Australia Day so we went to the park to see what was happening.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7170/6775206535_37577cdb66.jpg
we watched the flag raising ceremony and learned that the flag is made up of the English, Irish and Scottish flags plus the Southern Cross -the star constellation you see in the southern sky.

Albert Park, Melbourne, Australia - 5th February 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

Well I had a busy day today and boy it was hot! The temp got up to 33 degrees C and it was very windy. But as Sue was going to visit some friends at Albert Park, she had a look around to see if there was something on for us to look at. She learned that Midsumma was on and there was an art exhibition just around the corner from where she was going - a plan formed!! ;) Sadly we didn't get to see the gay pride parade - I would have achieved part of a mission - Sue says sorry but we just couldn't get there!  :(
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7151/6827892945_1200f7c5b2.jpg
here we are on the freeway heading up the Westgate Bridge
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7156/6827899815_812e675a7c.jpg
at the top of the bridge
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7148/6827901955_5b5bc8b4d6.jpg
coming down the bridge - there is a P & O cruise ship in the background  B)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7150/6827906883_1d7795677c.jpg
coming down the bridge - you can see the city of Melbourne behind us here Mum
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7007/6827913451_ba28a569b2.jpg
this is the first of the paintings Mum - the artist is a lady called  - Rynelle Walkershe is aboriginal and paints in the traditional style but with a contemporary vibrancy (we got that off the brochure!! :D)
I really like this painting.  :D
These paintings are all celebrating women.

this was the brochure at the art gallery that had all the different events in it Mum

this lady does sculpture using recycled wood

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7167/6827943585_7893d42ec3.jpg
Outside there was a sculpture on the wall of wings- so Sue's friend Ingrid helped me be an 'angel' for a little while!! ;)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7154/6827946993_f49250e619.jpg
In the garden outside we found some bush tucker
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7161/6827950869_9a58e7c8c3.jpg
these are also known as bush tomato
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7164/6827952779_3fd9f0daa2.jpg
We are very hot now Mum so are going to head back to the house to cool down.

Love and hugs

Melbourne, Australia - 9th February 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

Today we went in to the city to have a look around
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7188/6845059177_506ed45c5c.jpg
here we are at Docklands, it is near the train station - it was old docks but has been modernised and now there is a huge sports stadium, apartments and restaurants.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7062/6845061653_0b91c7abd8.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7014/6845068165_fec82c3653.jpg
we went on the tram that goes around the city in a big circle
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7057/6845072475_faa7db503c.jpg
we got the tram here at the State Parliament building - the building over the road is one of the theaters
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7199/6845080717_cc181b33c8.jpg
I am in the city centre now opposite St Paul's Cathedral
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7063/6845087237_cede4476e1.jpg
we are sitting on a bridge that goes over the Yarra river - on the left is South Bank and the right Flinders Street Station
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7004/6845095101_ab3f70f709.jpg
this statue is near the Arts centre, it is called Family 2, so we decided to join in too!! :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7172/6845096267_d63f4b4bfa.jpg
this statue, Family 1, had been taken away so we decided to become the family instead!!  ;)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7180/6845100113_7d9c894fcf.jpg
now we are down by the river,
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7168/6845101399_0c52dfeae9.jpg
Mmmmm...not bad here, it is a nice day today! B)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7048/6845102745_e7767ee97b.jpg
the square block looking building over the river is the National Art Gallery in Federation Square
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7005/6845106837_7e35aa63a0.jpg
Back on the bridge over the Yarra - this time looking the opposite way - in the distance is the Melbourne Cricket Ground - the sports centre where cricket and Australian Rules are played
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7197/6845113525_4c29e31109.jpg
Now I am in Federation Square
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7015/6845118145_9049798b18.jpg
and here...outside St Paul's cathedral looking over to Flinders Street Station.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7014/6845148505_069871e9c3.jpg
this is the train we are going home on
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7210/6845158437_7afb200ce8.jpg
Home we go! I am ready for a snooze now!!  ;)

Love and hugs
Shane

Barwon Heads, Australia - 11th February 2012

By: fleursmum

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7206/6860919291_febfb11661.jpg

Here we are a little up the coast from Ocean Grove at Barwon Heads - it has a surf beach then a tidal river and a calm swimming beach - this area is known at the Ship Wreck Coast because so many sailing ships ran aground here in the 1800's.

Just after this photo was taken I was blown off the post Mum!!  :o
But I was ok - lucky I didn't get blown out to sea!! ;)
