Hey Why Not!
19.03.2012 - 23.03.2012 26 °C
We arrived back into Melbourne, Monday lunchtime. I absolutely loved Avoca and had such a fun weekend!
Helena was now heading off into a hostel for the night as she was driving the Great Ocean Road the next day and Alan was back to work.
As the sun was beaming down in Melbourne I decide that today I would go up to the Eureka Sky Deck. It's an awe inspiring view of Melbourne from the Southern Hemisphere's highest viewing platform. You view on the 88th floor and you can see over the whole of Melbourne. I had purchased a sun and starts tickets for an extra $4 so I could return later to view at night.
What a view....
No I didn't stand in the same spot all day! ; )
I was cooking that night and after a weekend of un-healthy food I decided we would eat healthy so cooked us salmon with roasted veg and salad.
We sat on the balcony with our wine (standard) and ate whilst the sun was setting. After dinner I went back over to the skydeck - its 5minuites from Alan's apartment - look it really is, here it is from the view of it from Alan's balcony.
On Tuesday I met up with my friend Sinead who I had met back in Thailand. As the forecast has told us it was going to be the last day of sunshine we made our way over to St Hilder. Its a beach town with a man-made beach.
We caught a few rays had some lunch and then headed back to Sinead's friend house for a few hours.
That evening it was Alan's turn to cook and I wasn't let down we had Moroccan chicken with chickpeas! Delicious!
More wine please...
Moroccan chicken with chickpeas and rice
Wednesday was quite lazy I did some planning in the morning then at 4 o'clock headed into town to meet Sinead for a glass of wine. ( a bit of a picture emerging - 4'oclock glass of wine time in the sun!) Life is Peachy!
We went out that night as Alan was meeting some friends to go to a gig. Being with Sinead it was a most amusing night if a little random.
In the afternoon we visited Brunswick Street first which is very the closest you would get to Camden over here.
Blending in with the Graffiti.
Finally roof top bar for a few shots!
Thursday I was waiting for Friday to arrive!
Friday - It's Neighbors day!!!!!!!!! very exciting! (might even say a childhood dream.) We had to set our alarms as the afternoon tour was fully booked so we needed to be at the pick up point for 8:20 I hadn't done a day trip tour for a few weeks now so I was extra excited!
The trip didn't disappoint. We arrived on the street and filming was taking place, this meant at that time we couldn't get onto the street but could watch some filming. As we were delayed getting onto the street we were taken to the outside studios where they have the outside sets... it was so funny being outside Grease Monkeys and the Garage!
Then all of a sudden an Audi pulls up and out comes Dr Karl! AKA Alan Fletcher! I have to say that he absolutely loved it and really relished meeting his fans!
Following on from the excitement of meeting Dr Karl we headed back over to Ramsay Street! This time we were aloud onto the street to run around like excited kids!
If you are lucky enough to own one of the houses of Ramsay Street you get a minimum 50k pay out per year not to add the pure excitement of living on Ramsay Street! Some lucky residents owned yachts!
I got way to excited at meeting Dr. K - Look at my smile!
After the excitement of the trip we got dropped back off in central Melbourne. We headed for lunch then split to do some of our own shopping.
Friday evening I finally headed to Alan's gym. How Lucky a free gym swimming pool and tennis courts for the residents - you dont even have to go outside to reach it! The workout was good, I discovered how good the next day!
Saturday arrived and we were back off on road again!
