One of the attractive things about being moored in the heart of Melbourne is the opportunity to wander along the Docklands and the Yarra River. It can be a very windy place, but spectacular nonetheless in the late afternoon. The winter light is gentle, the buildings impressive, the skies moody and it is a view of our city we will not see again for a while.
We were due to leave Docklands on Wednesday, but we are spending another few days here to sort out our finances. My work mucked us up by losing …wait for it… my resignation, which is delaying the set up of my retirement income stream! This is really pathetic for a financial institution and is one source of aggravation we did not need. On the bright side though we have the green light from our medicos to set sails and we now have a bit more time for friends to come and visit before we finally cast off the mooring lines – hopefully on Sunday.
It is novel for all of us to be in such a spectacular location and we might as well enjoy ourselves! So let us show you around our temporary backyard and take you for a wander. As usual, click on the first image to display the gallery in full screen slide show.
