Mandalay is a private apartment building sitting proudly on St Kilda's Esplanade overlooking Port Phillip Bay. It has some terrific art deco features.
We walked up Robe Street and spied some more lovely art deco, with a little Spanish on the side and who would reject that.
Linden Gallery is a large Victorian era house, now owned by City of Port Phillip, I believe.
Alfred Square with what is purported to be St Kilda's oldest house on the right.
I've never has a close look at this monument, and still haven't, so I can't tell you what it is.
Tram our way to Balaclava. More late art deco or perhaps more correctly, moderne.
Bus up to High Street Prahran. All bus shelters need a chair on top of them.
The entrance to Prahran's Victoria Gardens. Note the very old lamps.
It was my first visit to the gardens and it is a very pleasant park.
Trees and grass. Our city needs them, lots of them.
I knew the lighting was wrong here, but the effect is not so bad.
These lamps at the other end of the park are quite different to those at the main entrance.
Bougainvillea is a difficult plant to maintain, with its thorns and vigorously growing long canes, but it gives a riot of colour in many different shades.
Blessed was a pork and salad roll and not too bad coffee at Tran Bakery after our circuit. Sadly Tran Bakery closed at Christmas but should reopen after renovations.
