I think this is an Australian native, a Corea.
And the wattle is in glorious bloom.
Yes, we live in the lucky country, more lucky for some that others.
"The working class can kiss my arse. I've got the bosses job at last".
As a communist, I think all Australians should live in such splendour.
Oh, that looks like some old money up there on the river bank.
I am walking along what once was the working class industrial northern side of the Yarra River in Burnley, looking across to the wealthy area of Toorak.
The street address for these far side buildings is probably St Georges Road.
The Glen Waverley train line crosses here and if travelling left to right towards Glen Waverley, the train will soon reach Heyington Station, probably the train station in Melbourne surrounded by the most expensive property. Sorry about the bad English in the last sentence, but I seem unable to rewrite it.
I initially thought these were apartments, but upon closer inspection, it is one house. I must work harder and longer and with more enthusiasm.
A local private school football team of lads run across the bridge, probably from St Kevin's.
From the far eastern side of the bridge, a train crosses on the way to Glen Waverley.
I liked these greetings on the path.
St Kevin's is on one side of the river and its boat shed on the other side.
Australia's M1 circles Australia mostly along the coast, in Victoria it is generally called the Princes Highway. This is Alt M1, the alternative M1, which is a toll motorway.
And underneath the City Link motorway, this is curious. I think I can see Tibetan prayer flags.
I am not great with the geography of this area. Apparently along the far structure, a bike path bridge, it is very close to Glenferrie Road. Actually the far side of the Yarra River here is Scotch College, one of our most prestigious boys schools.
More boat sheds, I think, and a smart new boat.....what is it called? Not a ramp. Landing? Private! Do no tie up your tin dinghy here and no fish gutting please.
Remember the the litter traps from earlier posts? Here is another.
Up the proletariat. We will win and install a drug addicted single gay black paraplegic father with his ADD children in your mansion. Seriously, the wealth along the river bank astonishes me. I kind of knew it was there but not in such opulence. We have to be talking about homes worth millions of dollars. How do people become so rich? Not by getting up at 5 oçlock in the morning and working an honest 40 hours a week.
Water has been ordered from our desalination plant, the decision being made before we had one of the wettest winters on record. Nothing to do with global warming though. It is so nice to see things very green. By the end of summer, it will probably be a very brown scene.
Kevin Bartlett was famous Aussie Rules football player, for the team of Richmond, where my great grandfather once played.
Note the cross peering down over the rather ordinary apartment block.
I've almost reached
