What a weekend!

WE went into the city early on Saturday and did a few touristy things, went of a river cruise down the Yarra to Docklands, that was most pleasant, enjoyed Turkish entertainment at Fed Square, and then U2. Well what can I say that hasn't already been said at various sites such as Whirlpool and It was the most amazing spectacular I have ever seen, the kids were thrilled with it and it well and truely lived up to everything I had heard. During the song Sunday Bloody Sunday, which was dedicated to the victims of the Bali Bombing, there were numerous messages put up on the big screen that Mr J is still talking about, messages about Peace, Tolerance etc. We stayed overnight in Melbourne, due to me having booked a room very early, as last week the cheapest room you could get in Melbourne in Sat night was over $500, I paid considerably less than that.

On Sunday we walked around the city and headed to Vic Market and did a little shopping, however due to a very big and late night the night before we were all a bit weary. We then headed to Williamstown to get some mussels from Seabounty on Wiliamstown Pier, this is somewhat of a tradition whenever we are in the City and are heading home. $4 per kilo and so fresh and tasty as well.

Now I need some sleep!
