Spider Ride and Footy

How high up did you say we were going to be???

A lot higher than this that is for sure!!

Heading off to the footy at the Telstra Dome. Gregory and Andrew watched Essenden get flogged by St Kilda, with standing room only!

Photo taken fom the balony of our apartment - There was only 49000 people crammed in there??? I don't understand the attraction myself, but obviously I am in a minority on that!

While we were in Melbourne we also went up to the top of the Eureka Tower to the Skydeck. It is the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere - 88 floors. It was very windy out on the terrace and you could see the glass quivering in the wind!! A little disconcerting!!

We found an amazing display of old books at the State Library. From a cuneiform tablet from 4000 years ago to some modern day novels. Fascinating display if anyone is in Melbourne! We loved looking around the Library too - some many books in one place!!!

The other amazing thing we did was eat out every night - this is unheard of for us! It was great and we tried not to have the same thing each night but I am afraid I can eat sushi every night!! Yum yum yum!! I did have risotto and authentic Italian pizza too.

Righto, back to reality - off to do some housework with maybe a little stop off at my scrapping table?? Lol!

Well Hello Kathryn,

I haven't seen you for ages!!!!!
Well I am glad you chose to attend
an Essendon game, even if they were flogged, your family will be welcome to our place, providing red and black P.J's are worn, LOL.
There is so much to do in Melbourne. David and Tom love it. Apparently Andrew should get along to the Sports Museum, James Hird has a brand new holographic display, opened yesterday that Dave is going to visit first stop next trip, Hirdy said himself it was so real, it spooked him. Hird is very famous, his jumper hangs over our bar!! Only paying you out Kathryn, hee hee. Seriously if Andrew gets a chance, anyhoo. Catchyou soon. Love Cocoxx
