This is the twelfth day of our Victorian holiday, and despite rain EVERY day, we've had a great time.
We've explored many central Victorian towns which, although in the depths of winter with dark clouds and bare trees, have a certain cosiness about them and the sure prospect of Spring and Summer beauty.
We've met and enjoyed the company of Blog friends - "hello and thank you, Lee-ann (and Rob), and Susan (and four-legged friends)" - and longtime friends whom we hadn't seen for several years, plus family members, and greatly appreciated their always generous hospitality.
Of course, I must not overlook the original purpose of the trip, to see 'The Elixir of Love' in Melbourne, where we also met other friends for the first time face-to-face.
The production was highly entertaining - beautiful singing, great acting and very amusing. Wonderful. I'm sure we'll enjoy the final night just as much, if not more, on Wednesday.
Oh yes, I have also taken 'one or two' photos which I will post when I return home at the end of this week.
