Sundays in my City #62 – A Beautiful Day in Melbourne

05 Jun

I had a wonderful day today.  It started off by meeting up with a few other Melbourne Bloggers for a walk around Albert Park as a part of the MS Fun Run.  (I plan to write more about the fun we had, but in case I don’t, head over here for Cate’s recap of the day!)

Melbourne really turned on some beautiful weather, the sun was shining and the sky was blue.  There were thousands of walkers and runners all there to raise funds and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.

After our walk we stopped for a bite to eat and a chat.  I was in no hurry to be anywhere, I wandered back into the city, enjoying the peace and quiet and the opportunity to play tourist for a few minutes.

I loved getting an opportunity to play tourist in my own city.  I really should make the time to do it more often, Melbourne is a beautiful city.

    Australia…..I would LOVE to go there and visit the entire country and then hop on over to New Zealand. In another life, I probably lived in New Zealand.

    It’s silly how rarely we do play tourist at home, especially when there’s so much to do and see! I’ve been meaning to do one of the walking tours of The Rocks in Sydney for years.

    That first shot is really lovely, great setting for a fun run!
