Hmmmmm. Things have been very quiet in this blog for a while.

Oh well, I'm to blame. Was going to put in a few pics of my trip to Melbourne.
Didn't take any on the trip to Brisbane, but that was sort of rushed.
'Never enough time'.

I'm off to Melbourne, again, tomorrow. Not driving this time. Flying down and back in the one day, to catch up for a couple of hours with the company I visited in Brisbane. All very exciting stuff that I'll have to report on when I get back.  :)

Hi,

The trip to Melbourne, yesterday, was good. Lots to see and do, there.
I think Melbourne has a lot more character than Sydney, and the sight-seeing is different.
Lots of decorative old buildings, trams and greenery.
It was mostly business, which was very successful. It's only an hour or so flight, but it was a long day.
At least they are paying  ;)

Last time I was in Melbourne, I drove down, and had a chance to go see the rhododendrons at the Nicholas estate (developed from the Aspro fame and fortune). The gardens are quite excellent, 'tho not quite as good as they used to be. Maybe because I was on my own, this time. I'll post a few pics.
