A weekend walk

Friday, February 12, 2010

Hubs and I have decided to do some long walks over the weekends (by long I mean anything between 5 and 10km BTW) and last Saturday we had a great day exploring the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. The weather was sensational, and after walking into town from home, we wandered around for a few hours, enjoying the sunshine (we both got sun burnt) and each other's company.

Matching Crumplers! (I've been wanting this photo taken for AGES!)

Turkish Delight! Yum!

We checked out the local flora and fauna...

And played around a bit too!

We also checked out the Shrine of Remembrance.


We then headed to our favourite place in Chinatown, Shanghai Dumplings, and stuffed ourselves silly for $20!

Mmmmm... dumplingicious! 
(I know I look a bit spaced out, but I was sunburnt and tired from all our walking!)

And washed them down with a couple of Tsingtaos!

We then headed off to Pellegrini's (a "Melbourne Institution") for a coffee

And we finished off a big day out by seeing Sherlock Holmes at the movies, which, by the way was a great movie! It's lots of fun with a bit of mystery and mayhem. Really really enjoyed it.

All in all and amazing day with Hubs, exploring this great city we live in, and enjoying it while we can!
