Road Trip, Day 6
This duo were our alarm, this morning.
Saw the Dahlia display, but I think it was nearly finished as it looked a bit sad. Some of the blooms were huge and there was a wide range of colours and styles on display. The Fern House seems to under-going renovation and was disappointing. Walked along the Avenue of Prime Ministers. This is busts of all Australian Prime Ministers, from Federation in 1901 to Tony Abbott. Malcolm Turnbull has to wait.
Also walked the Avenue of Giants. Sequoias, Californian Redwoods, have been planted and are huge. I did notice some smaller ones, planted to replace ones that have been damaged.
Morning tea at Pipers by the Lake and then Paul went back to the car and I went and took some photos of Lake Wendouree.
Below are its details, courtesy of Wikipedia. It was also used for rowing events, during the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.
Shore length1: 6 km (3.7 mi)
Back into town and I did some more research in the library. Didn't find what I wanted but I have found very useful information, while I've been here.
Heading off, tomorrow, so I had better pack the bags.
Bye for now,
