melbourne moments

30 December 2013

We spent the week before christmas in Melbourne. Sunset beach walks along the bay. A kaleidoscope of kite surfers across the sky. Dining alfresco as the late summer sun set. Waitresses with beautiful long hair. Giving friends our love for their struggle to become parents. Breakfast with a warm, bubbly bloggy friend. Afternoon naps on the couch. A fabulous unit in a great location courtesy of a travelling loved one. Quality time with one of my half brothers. Lying in the park relaxing. A fancy dress party. Feeling sexy in my costume. The distinct sound of the trams as they creak across the tracks. Laneway exploring. City breakfast date before my husband went to work. A delicious drink from Pressed Juices. A wash and blow dry at the hairdresser where I nearly fell asleep. Cool mornings. Leaving on the stinking hot day, phew! Dog cuddles. Planning our dreams. Airports – love them.

    Walks in wind and lashing rain. Meals by the light of candles and a log fire. Driving through flooded roads for the midnight service. Visits loaded with gifts. Dark at 4pm. Snoozes after dinner with rugs on sofa. Books, books, books. Christmas twinkle and sparkle in the dark. Cooking in a warm kitchen. Nibbling all day long. Painting my nails shocking pink. Drinking hot amaretto and clementine juice. What different experiences we have had of Christmas week! But similar experience of love and friendship. How lucky we are Lucent!

    Thank you for these bits of summer life. These pictures and moments give me energy for the hardest part of Winter to come here in France – you know, when all the festive spirit of Christmas and New Year is gone and all there is left are bare trees and muddy snow. Your pictures are wonderful :)

    Oh Lucent how I love Melbourne and how I love your photos of the time you spent there recently!
    You’re so lucky to have friends and family to enjoy there as well as a blogging friend. Our Melbourne friends no longer live there so sadly we don’t go as often now.
    Happy New Year to you and those you love.
