A little break in holiday posts. Join with River and quite a number of others for Sunday Selections.
Some of these were taken a while ago. I can't remember why I took photos of the moon, apart from it being a kewl colour.
This was animated. Again, I am not sure where the photo was taken.
Travelling is all very well, but it comes at a price, both before and after. Being warmer inside than the place is in summer, clothes dry in a couple of days in the spare room.
What a nice idea at Pran Central. Free wi fi too.
We have been to see the marvellous David Bowie exhibition at ACMI, direct from the Victoria and Albert Museum. What a brilliant artist. There was plenty of music at the exhibition too. Yep, some people danced.
The day dawned clear.
I've never noticed condensation coming from this pipe before. I looks like a sewer vent pipe, but I am sure it isn't.
R indulged me with a trip on the new Regional Rail Link line. It diverts off the main Geelong line so that the Geelong and other country trains are out of the mix with suburban trains. While the distance is longer, there is less stopping and on new track, the train can really hike along. I could not get proper gps signals for my speed device on my phone to work, but I estimate over 130 km/h. It was great to hear the roar of the diesel engine as it generated electricity to send us flying across the countryside in the very smooth and comfortable train. The noise might be a little annoying on a long trip. Can anyone tell me if all carriages have the motors under them or are some just trailers? (I came across something that indicated all carriages are powered)
Wydham Vale Station is brand new and it feels like it. The wind howled and whistled around the infrastructure as we waited for the bus to Werribee. West of the city is not called Pleurisy Plains without good reason. The area is so flat and there is little to break the wind.
Nowhere for lunch around here, so it is the 190 bus to Werribee. The bus was prompt and the trip took perhaps 15 minutes.
I had wondered what the new to me bus company CDC letters stood for. I saw it on the bus, ComfortDelGro & Cabcharge. Cabcharge?!
Werribee Station underpass.
I did not get a photo of the famous person who R suggested to be Shane Crawford, a former sports person and celebrity. After lunch we caught the suburban train back to town. We found the train seats very hard after being on the VLocity train. Even the suburban service briefly reached 118 km/h.
My fake bathroom plant had dusty leaves, so I give it a shower.
R went to his volunteer place fundraising trivia night and won these. They are very comfortable and warm, but somewhat hazardous to walk in.
Lastly I will leave you with some shots of clever lighting displays in Campbell Arcade, or if you like, the Degraves Street subway.
