Melbourne Weekend

Last weekend Farmer Phil, Emma and I spent 3 days in Melbourne.  We were there to visit my very good friend Adrienne and her family who were having a one-night stop-over on their way back home in NZ. After exhausting the DFO we drove to South Melbourne to have a look at The Block 2012.  It's in a really lovely suburb and it was great to see them in the flesh!

We took Emma to her first ever game of AFL football at the MCG on Saturday night.  She was amazed by the noise of the 62,000 people there with all their one-eyed heckling of the other team and supporters!

Emma and our friend Farmer Jason outside the house the contestants renovated after they thought they'd finished!  Jas had just run the Melbourne half marathon that morning!

"He'd just run a half marathon that morning".
I'd be in a coma somewhere just past the finish line.
Hope you had a lovely Melbourne visit.
