South Yarra COVID Walk -The End

These are the remaining photos I took while COVID exercise walking in South Yarra. There is nothing left to see for me nor you after these photos. We know it all. I have pretty well stopped COVID exercise walking. I am getting (almost) plenty of exercise in as we go about our or my day. 

Cro asked to see this work on our wall. It always seem to shine in one direction or the other. When we bought it, it was too big to fit in the car, so it had to be delivered.


A beautiful terrazzo paved entrance.


And a beautiful front door.


Laneway access with a very high step to probably a courtyard.


One serious outdoor lamp.


Three storey houses are not so common but there is a terrace of three in Park Street and two have been restored and work is underway on one. One level is below ground level. 


As you can see here.


Just a grand and great trio of two storey terraces.


Ok, I have left South Yarra now and close to home, outside The Hallmark apartment building, formerly the Holiday Inn and earlier, The Travelodge. 


I guess for this post I uploaded the photos some time ago for a Sunday Selections, hence odd thrown in photos such as the view from where we lunched in Torquay a couple of months ago.


You don't bring me flowers any more, but you could if you went out with secateurs near a surf shop in Torquay.

  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed walking with you. That door is spectacular - and I suspect when it is opened the house is in keeping. I hope so.
    Your comment about the flowers and the secateurs reminded me of my mother. She always had a pair in her handbag to take surreptitious cuttings. Which filled me with shame. I can see the temptation though.

    1. EC, yes I would guess traditional front rooms and a modern back end.

  3. Ah lovely. So nice to see there is a place of sunshine and blossoms. Everything is cold, snowy and dreary. Yes. Winter!

  4. My Mum used to go walking with secateurs, that's how she got most of her garden plants. I like the fancy old door and tiled porch.

    1. River, my grandmother was known to take a walk with secateurs too. The entrance is quite special.

  5. What an interesting walk. I love the old buildings. I've been known to snip a wee bit back in the day.

    And that art piece is riveting.

    1. WWW, all these self confessed plant snippers. The art is not to everyone's liking but we both do.

  6. The painting looks fun, you'd never get bored with it. Those houses are beautiful, the two stories and a basement reminds me on London.

    1. Thanks Cro. The houses are very nice.....and would break most people's bank.

  7. Those terraced homes with wrought iron balconies and front gardens are my dream-come-true. I would ask my beloved to work in a coal mine, to pay for one of those *sigh*

  8. Do like those terrace houses - there is just someone about them.
    The art is magic and yes, so large but know doubt worth it.

    1. Margaret, is is a large art work, but the wall is pretty large too and it fits perfectly.

  9. The three storey houses are fab Andrew, I've seen a few like that when visiting family in Surry Hills, would love to see inside one. The terraces are nice too. I love the idea of them but not sure if I'd like to live in one, too used to a big garden ✨
