Getting out of Melbourne traffic and back to pokey roads was such a relief for us simple country folk. So why did we go back? The Bendigo Aunties were planning a shopping trip, taking the train into the city, so we decided to take the opportunity to see the centre of Melbourne without having the car. We spent the whole day walking around - down the south bank of the Yarra, and back along the north bank and around the city. There were only a few patches of sun (much to the photographer's annoyance) but at least it was fine. Although we didn't have time to go into any museums or galleries, we did get a good feel for the big smoke, and are convinced that we aren't city slickers!
