City Wanderings

We took our lovely visitors from Germany into the city today to have a look around......we went in on the train, then got the City Circle train from the back of Etihad stadium (love the dragon!!)

 to Federation Square where we went to the Info office. Edith loves art so they wandered off to the National Gallery, while hubby did the hobby and military book shops and I wandered along by the Yarra taking toy voyager photos and just enjoying the sights. I then took myself off to
here,

and indulged in a little
of this...

and took home these!! Very happy wanderer!!! Lol!!
We were waiting for our visitors when the thunder sounded
and then the heavens opened!! The more I look at this photo the more I can see the angry wind and rain man or maybe it is the thunder man in the clouds!!  Just above the station!We had to wait a good ten minutes for an easing in the weather to get across the road. We made it over to Flinders St Station and got the train from there to Southern Cross and then on to home! Not exactly the day we were expecting but a good day none the less.
Happy wandering.

Isn't it amazing how we tend to gravitate to shops that have fabrics etc hehehe.The storm hit here around 1.00pm but vanished just as quickly. Dull, overcast and much cooler.

I would brave any weather for a trip to l'uccello. Actually it rained heavily last time I was there. That dragon looks rather spectacular.
