A few energetic days

Inside Captain Cook's Cottage

The last few days have been "on the go" as we say in aussiland. My 2 precious grandchildren have been staying with us - sometimes accompanied by a parent or 2, sometimes not. Young children are lots of fun and lots of work! My grandchildren are not toddlers anymore - ages are 5 and 9- but they sure keep you on your toes and remind you what a demanding job child rearing is. Anyway, we had a successful day visiting Captain Cook's cottage and the carved "fairies' tree" in Melbourne's Fitzroy Gardens. We then walked round to the Old Treasury building that has been converted into a fascinating museum covering early Melbourne history.
