Our first couple of days in Melbourne, we mainly just got back into the swing of being back downunder again. Everything suddenly seems very familiar again. Many thanks indeed to Helen and Derek for letting us crash at their place (Edithvale, SE Melbourne) as our base for our time in Melbourne/Victoria. Just relaxed mostly with a couple of fine meals out with them for Friday and Saturday. Great to get back to the land of big steaks and fab seafood. Weather has been superb, although a fair bit cooler than we have been used to. A good way to adjust before getting home to NZ. Had a great breakfast down at St. Kilda beach on the Sunday before meeting my (Tony) sister Sandra, her husband Merv, and my great nephew Marc (8yrs) whom we were meeting for the first time. We then drove with them north to their house in the outer regions of Victoria for a few days.
