Sundays in my City #71 – A Day Out in the City

14 Aug

Unknown Mami

I have had a wonderful, indulgent weekend.  Today I met up with friends in North Melbourne for brunch at the Auction Rooms before heading in to the city to wander a bit exploring the streets and laneways before joining more friends for afternoon tea at Chocolait.  Talk about a great day and awesome food overload – YUM.

Enjoying Brunch

Recycling - Green Printing

The perfect afternoon tea!

I have spent more time in the city this past few weeks than I have in what feels like forever.  It has made me realise just how much I love Melbourne, wandering streets and laneways, exploring shops and loving the pleasure of a quiet day out with no obligations other than having fun.  As an added bonus, all of the walking we did today, from North Melbourne in and around the city and South Bank then back home was about 11km – surely that would have worked off some of the calories from afternoon tea!

 Head over to Unknown Mami and check out some of the adventures others have had during their Sundays in my City as I head back out in the cold to pick up the kids from the party!

    I loved Melbourne streets too. I want to come back for a weekend sans children :).
    Sounds like you had a great day and 11kms would have worked off zillions of calories.

      It was divine and that was only part of it. There was also the mousse, hand made Belgian chocolates and the hot chocolate made with dark Belgian chocolate. An amazing chocolate overload.

    I wish we did afternoon tea here. It’s something that the U.S. should adapt from the many countries who take the time out for a cup of tea and quick snack 🙂

      I generally don’t do afternoon tea unless it is a special occasion. Around here it is more about feeding the ravenous hordes that I call my kids but it really is a lovely way to spend time with friends. We really should do it more often.

    Your little lady having tea is delightful! Loved it when I toured England / Ireland, a few of the major hotels in downtown SF used to have nice ones as well.
