By the time we wrapped back into the “CBD” – the Central Business District – at 10 am, things were starting to pop. Local walk, Lia, told us that Sunday has become a day to come into the city. The “in” thing to do is to spend the day in Melbourne and things were happening everywhere we looked.
There was an Amazing Race-type charity game going on all over the city, teams dressed in different garb and costumes running all over the city after clues and signing in a checkpoints
Members of the group peeled off at various points during the walk to enjoy the many offerings of Melbourne in terms of museums, a free tram ride tour, the Queen Victoria Market, the Old Melbourne Gaol (jail), and more. We rendezvoused last night for a delightful and delicious dinner, possibly the best food of the trip yet, aboard the Colonial Tram, a restored Victorian-era tram, that gently rolled through the city while we dined in style. It was a monstrous hit with the group and, with the unlimited and free flow of wine available, I believe they all slept well last night!
