Little Jo posts R's letter to Santa. She had already sent hers but she wrote R's as he dictated.
The Christmas tree has been erected in the City Square but the area did not open until the following weekend.
We visited Dymocks book store in Collins Street. Little Jo could have spent the whole afternoon there, but we moved her on with the promise of McDonalds for afternoon tea. We walked through Royal Arcade....
to the animated Myer Christmas window display. This year's theme is Santa and the Three Bears.
These decorations have been used for a few years. The old General Post Office, GPO, clock tower is in view.
The exterior of Royal Arcade.
The Myer window display is a series of maybe ten windows each continuing the story. The queue was long, managed by two staff. It takes about twenty minutes to see every window show.
Plenty of atmosphere and people and it was only still November.
A quite nice display for Christmas.
Busy, busy, busy. I want to go home and we did. But it was nothing compared to the following weekend's visit to the largest shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere, Chadstone. We thought we get there early and have easy parking and avoid the crowds. So did everyone else.
