I had a wonderful day today…. We arrived very early this morning into Melbourne, Australia. You could really see and smell the smoke from the tragic fires that have plagued Victoria... very sad. I decided to just cruise around town and take in the sights and snap a few pics. I took the tram to Collins & King Streets and got off. I then meandered my way down toward the Melbourne Town Hall and the Flinders Street Station. I then wandered down to the Botanical Gardens and the Shrine of Rememberance. Next I decided to check out the Eureka Skydeck 88 floors up for a view of the city. I also decided to check out their ‘Edge’ experience where the opaque room you are in moves out away from the building and then clears up to show you are in a clear glass enclosure looking down 88 floors…. Very cool! My friends Larry & Carol did this on the Asia voyage and loved it as well. I then walked along the Yarra River taking in the views before returning to the ship. Once aboard I sat by the pool and sucked up some much needed rays…. Tomorrow we have a day at sea as we sail for Adelaide, Australia.
