Is this Squizzy's House?
We are staying at Middle Park, which is only a stones throw from Port Phillip bay, St Kilda and South Melbourne. In saying that it is all pretty trendy. Reminds me a bit of my younger years in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Lots of terrace type houses, back lanes, trams and one gets the feeling the "Squizzy" from Underbelly is going to jump out at any time from the myriad of lanes, with a machine gun. Interesting.
But the whole joint is sooooooooooooooo expensive, all to much for a couple of very poor Geriatric Gypsies, who now work for Kevin Dudd.
Of course the Bride is spending a lot of time with Ann in the nursing home. However one afternoon, we took the opportunity to catch a tram into the city, and check it out. The last time I was in Swanston Street Melbourne was 40 odd years ago, with a couple of surfie mates, Macca and Crowe, on our way the Bells Beach, in Crowe's trusty hotted up vee dub.
Finders Street Rail Station
Feeeeeeeeeeerk was this for real...........................well guess what, nothing has changed.
The big difference is the multi cultural population. Felt like the odd one out, if you get my drift. I couldn't understand what was being said for love nor money from anybody, Must be very Melbournian.
Yep I'm still a chic magnet (he he!!)
Anyway we wandered down Swanston Street and headed towards Federation Square to play "Tom the Tourist." We didn't stay in the city to long, cause really we were out of our comfort zone, so to speak.
The only cheap burger we get was at a "chew and spew joint" down near the station. This is the first time ever, the bride and I felt really uncomfortable. Not only was the joint filthy dirty, but some eccentric wandered in with no shirt on, army camouflage pants, covered in tats all over the body, including his melon, and with the outside temperature about 40 degrees below zero, may I add. Feeeeeeeeeeeerk is this turkey is going to spray the joint with a M16.
The bride outside Federation Square........bloody expensive if you
want to look at anything.
Maybe we should go there to save us
Hey Lady, maybe you know where the noooooooodie beach is
We wandered around for only a short time, and decided to head back to catch the tram 112 back to our residence.
Where have you two been. I have been worried sick!!!!
Stay toooned for the next adventure in Melbourne.
