Where I stayed
Friday: The next morning, Rosemary and I had a lazy morning and went out for a nice breakfast the Upper Fern Tree Gully. I hopped on the train back to the city and then was back out on the town. I took a walk down High Street which is a cute area near where I was staying. I poked around the shops and had a nice lunch before heading downtown. I went to take a look at the National Art Gallery where the had the best exhibition: Shoes
Saturday: I got up fairly early and hopped on the bike for a tour of the city. I rode downtown to finally check out the Queen Victoria Market. It is a huge market with fruits, veggies, meat, cheese, clothes, tourist items, pretty much anything you need. I actually bought something! A much needed sarrong for beach days! It felt nice to finally buy something after looking around so many shops, knowing that I a) can't afford it and b) don't want to carry it! I continued on after the market and rode to Williamstown. It is a pretty little town and I hopped a ferry from there back to St. Kilda. I poked around the beach there a bit before heading back to Toorak for a nice relaxing evening, watching the swimming! Michael Phelps is amazing. He swims like no other! It was pretty neat!
Sunday: I had a lazy morning. I headed down High Street again and had a great lunch. Not much else was going on that day. I hopped the train back out to Cheer Victoria to prepare for the week of cheerleading! I met Derrick who is a former University of Louisville Cheerleader , very skilled! His girlfriend was there as well as her brother and his friend. They are hoping to eventually open a cheer gym up and are all trying to get educated about coaching. All very nice people. We watched Band of Brothers that night. A good movie and then to bed to rest up for a busy week of cheering!
