I took the children out in the morning when Monte had a work meeting. We played in the play ground and walked through the gardens.
We played around with the camera for a while. We also looked at interesting trees and plants. We played: they ran, I followed, carrying all the bags of gear that kiddies require. Our feet got wet on the grass that was still wet from the morning dew. We didn’t mind.
It was also very special to catch up with Sarah (Monte’s sister) and the children. We explored a miniature village and a fairy tree. We walked around and caught a tram and visited a cafe and went to the Queen Vic markets for a while before returning to the hotel and sharing a Vietnamese takeaway dinner and some wine and lots of chatting and laughter. Melbourne had to look out for this large group of Goulding Smiths!
