On the way home we took the boys up the Eureka Tower in Melbourne. It is the tallest residential tower in the world with the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere.
These photos are taken from the 88th floor.
The stadium in the centre with all the blue courts around is where the Australian Open Tennis is being played. The arena with the lights at the back is the MCG...site of the appalling Boxing Day Test which sealed Australia's loss of The Ashes to the Brits. The river running through the city is The Yarra. I realise now I should have taken a photo of Albert Park Lake with the Melbourne Grand Prix track circumnavigating it. It seems Melbournians are a bit sports mad.

This morning whilst taking a shower, in the newly cleaned and fumigated shower recess which was home to the now evicted chickens, I had the strangest feeling I was being watched!
After the shower I felt like taking a bow, as the 6 y.o. did yesterday after assisting a (rather dreadful) busker.
