Great Places To Visit - The Murray River

I never tire of walking along and sitting upon the banks of the lovely Murray River at Tocumwal.  Our little cottage there is a wonderful escape from the hussle and bussle of the city. It's wonderful to have a place of beauty and tranquility to visit and revive without having to spend a fortune.  I feel truly blessed. i hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.  So tranquil. 

I also enjoy just standing on the old rail/road bridge and watching the sun on the water and the trees. The bridge is still used by goods trains, but no longer by cars.  You can see and hear the trains coming from a long way and they always toot very loudly as they approach, just in case.

The early morning light and the late afternoon light are my fav. times to visit and just be quiet, listen and look. So refreshing for the heart, soul, spirit and mind.

Great Places To Visit - Federation Square - Melbourne City Centre - Australia

Hubby and I have been living and working in Melbourne for over 20 years now.  It has occurred to us that Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in the world, but we never really explore it, just live in it.  So, we have decided to change that.

Last Saturday evening we caught the train (resisted the urge to drive) into Flinders Street Station, walked across the road to Federation Square and along the Yarra River. Decided to eat at one of the little Cafe/Restaurants at Fed Square. Settled on Feddish.  We weren't disappointed.  Lovely food, good variety, served promptly.  As it is right on the Yarra Edge of Fed Square we were able to listen to the Nepal Prayer Vigil. Very touching and special.

Melbourne city is so lovely at night with all its coloured lights, horse draw carriages, Flinders Street Station, The Arts Centre, etc, etc, etc.  We intend to do more of this kind of thing. There is so much to explore and see in our beautiful city by the sea.
