Melbourne – Yesterday!

The weather in Melbourne today is so absolutely dreadful that we didn’t even go to the Formula One track. The cold wind (and the rain!) is so strong houses are falling down, so we went to a great Spanish restaurant in St Kilda (St Kilda is where where we always stay – and have for decades), and are now watching the cars on TV!

However, this picture is from yesterday, which was a gorgeous day. It’s not a very good picture (I took it from our table, where we were having St Patrick’s Day drinks!), but it gives you an idea of what St Kilda Beach looks like in nice weather. 🙂

St Kilda

We flew to Melbourne this morning, for the Formula One Grand Prix. Qantas screwed up our flight – as usual!

Here is St Kilda Beach in the late afternoon.

Tasmanian Coast

December at the beach in Tasmania, Australia. Taken when we were there for Christmas a few years ago.

They predicted snow on Christmas Day (remember, it’s summer at Christmastime here!), and I was so disappointed we didn’t get it! *

Melbourne’s Weather in One Picture

The sun was out, but the (very strong) wind was freezing. St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia in one picture: half the tourists braving it out to live the Australian “Sun and Sand” stereotype, and the other half dressed for snow!

Melbourne in March

This was taken from the balcony of our apartment on the 13th of March. That’s Luna Park, with Port Phillip Bay behind it.
