Melbourne Photo A Day: Week one

16 Feb

Day 1: First stop, the beach


Sunday, February 9: After the long journey from England to Australia and a ridiculously early land I was thoroughly looking forward to one of Melbourne’s deliciously smooth flat whites. So before checking in to my AirBnB room, my cases and me headed over to my new favourite breakfast spot, The West Beach Bathers Pavilion.  Delicious it was too, and from a return visit I can now vouch for their Avocado Smash – a gorgeous mix of avocado and feta on toasted Turkish bread.

Day 2: Go Fly a Kite


Monday, February 10: A windy day in Melbourne brought the kite surfers to St Kilda – a mesmerising and impressive sight.

Day 3: Stationary Heaven


Tuesday, February 11: I drooled over Kikki K when I first came to Australia but with a backpack and a trip to Sri Lanka planned, I resisted any splurges.  Not this time though.  I have a ridiculous love for all things stationary so on a trip into the City on Tuesday I made sure I paid a visit to one of their stores and picked up a few bits and bobs.  It will no doubt be the first of many visits over the coming months.

Day 4: #SummerRead


Wednesday, February 12: Wednesday saw my first class at RMIT and whilst I was waiting for it to start, I popped over to the Victoria State Library to soak up the sun and investigate the crates on the lawn.  It transpired the library have filled them with books and as part of their Summer Read event, you can pick one out to enjoy on the grass as you while away the hours.

Day 5: Oh man! I LURV DE CAKE!


Thursday, February 13: A quiet day of errands, homework and exploring of St Kilda whilst avoiding the cake shops of Acland Street, including Le Bon with their very, very tempting Best in State Vanilla Slice.

Day 6: Super Cool Cushions


Friday, February 14: I walked up to South Melbourne Market for lunch and expected to spend a bit of time exploring the food stalls before heading back to St Kilda.  What I didn’t realise was there is far more to this market than just food.  One of my reasons for being away from home is to spend time focusing on my sewing for a project when I return to the UK, so finding The Super Cool was well timed.  Amongst the many gorgeous homewares was this display of cushions – so many colours, patterns and trimmings, and all so bright provided some food for thought.

Day 7: Running quotes


Saturday, February 15: Embedded in the pathway between St Kilda and Elwood, my new running route, there are various quotes relating to the area.  This one I particularly liked; the image of swimming with dolphins along such a beautiful coastline is rather picture perfect.
