Short visit to Melbourne

Hi there 
we have just returned from a few days in Melbourne 
we travelled over 
to Celebrate a 60th Birthday party with
some beautiful friends of ours .

Cheryl and Phil  both turned 60 a week apart from each other  
so they naturally had a combined party .

Melbourne is so busy 
Nice to visit but too busy for me 
the party was fabulous 
lots of fun, laughter, food, drink and great music and dancing .

the venue was at Q.P.O 
High Street Kew .
this building was the old Post Office in Kew .
a beautiful old piece of architecture 

 lots of little unique eating places and coffee shops .
 love this rustic timber bench .
 herbs on display .

the city of Melbourne 
we had a fabulous time but pleased to be back home in my garden .

thanks so much for popping by
big hugz until next time we meet
