The Sunday Best

Over the weekend, Mark and I celebrated another year (and surviving another winter) living in Melbourne. Now, four years into our Melbourne adventure, I’ve been reflecting fondly over our first year here; remembering the excitement and fear the first time I caught a tram and hoping it was heading in the right direction; walking the city like a tourist taking photos of everything we could see and strolling the city laneways for hours in wonderment.

I will forever miss the warm sunny beaches of Perth, but now I finally feel that I’ve come to grips with Melbourne’s weather. My handbag always has an umbrella, a cardigan and enough change for a coffee to warm my hands.

Winter is certainly here with chilly mornings making it hard to get out of bed. But yesterday we managed to brave the chill and take a short 45 minute drive from Melbourne to the pristine Sherbrooke Forrest. Situated within the Dandenong Ranges, the forrest was filled with crisp morning fog, giant moss covered mountain ash trees and the surround sound of birds of all kinds.

After our walk we stopped into the nearby Burnham Bakery & Piggery Cafe for some lunch and maybe a slice of cake.
