'Shall we go to the shops, my sweet?'
'Again? Let's not'.
Right, on the second Sunday of each month Westgarth Town is open. Oddly Westgarth Town is not in Westgarth, but in Thomastown. Where is that? I knew enough to know it was on the Epping train line. I looked at an electric map. Too far from the station to walk. Ah, direct driving route is along very busy roads.
Freeway then, although a longer a distance, it will be easier and
probably quicker. It was about a half hour's drive.
Westgarth Town is the remains of a German settlement. There are a few houses remaining, privately owned and occupied, except for one which is an historic site.
Now, how to get home by car from Smith Street. I wanted to go via Hoddle Street and Punt Road, but R suggested going via the City. Me? Drive in the City? Oh dear. Let me think. Can you turn right from Spring Street into Flinders Street? I didn't think so. We'll go down Lansdowne Street. Ha, you can't turn right at the bottom there either. Oh well, past the MCG and Punt Road it is.
