Day 8 Melbourne

We shopped on our last day in Melbourne before heading to the airport after lunch at the Pancake Parlour.  Below is a wrap up of the Instagram pictures taken during the week.

Beau was so excited to see the turtles at the aquarium.

Thank you Moppy for the Easter money.  We bought a penguin and turtle!

Day 7 Melbourne: Shrine of Remembrance and Royal Botanical Gardens

On Wednesday, we went to the Shrine of Remembrance.  We happened upon a Legacy tribute that was for students (they were back in school) was going to start in 5 minutes and we were invited to take a set behind the stage where the Governor of Victoria was sitting (interesting fact: Alex Chernov was born in Lithuania) and take part of the Anzac ceremony.

Afterwards, we toured the Shrine of Remembrance and the Royal Botanical Gardens.

There was a pool of water on this canvas above our heads and the bird was making concentric circles when she drank.
