Blue bark? I think nature may have been interfered with.
While waiting at a bus stop a descending paraglider came into sight. I was too slow to get a photo but I accidently snapped a lad on a trampoline. Boing, is the appropriate word, I think. He was going boing on the trampoline. Boing, boing, boing.
The makeover of the southern end of Acland Street has been completed and I do not like the retro futuristic shelters at all.
But the area has been greatly improved by stopping cars and making it a pedestrian space.
A new tram terminus was built, with platforms for easy physical access to trams.
The Village Belle Hotel stands in Barkly Street at the end of Acland Street. A friend once hired a tram for a party and it was an amazing evening as we rode the rails of Melbourne's tram system. It was an articulated tram and at one end was the music. A speaker was blown up and very hungover the next day I went with him to return the sound system and he told the place one speaker did not work at all. I remember a guy dressed in a WWII nurses uniform with very precise actions directing traffic around the tram at Carlisle Street and St Kilda Road. No alcohol on tram was allowed, but he was given a nod and a wink to black out the tram windows with black plastic, which he did. Of course as the night wore on, the plastic came off the windows. In front of the ever tolerant old men patrons at the Village Belle, he danced on top of the bar in drag. It was just the most brilliant night ever.
The entrance to the ever popular Luna Park.
I like this modern and unusual apartment building.
The external renovation of the huge Palais Theatre has been completed and she now looks very fine. Behind her and across a Jacka Boulevard is St Kilda Beach.
