Springtime in the city

We took up residence at Marina YE, on the edge of the Yarra River, at the end of August and stayed til the end of November - and had a lovely three months in between. City living has its advantages, not least the First Mate's quick and easy tram trip to work, and we made the most of it - we averaged 5 nights out of 7 on Manookatoo every week!

We enjoyed many cruises out onto the bay every time the weather was fine, we also enjoyed a few overnight cruises - to Sandringham, Williamstown and even down to Geelong!

Many friends and family members visited while we were there too, and enjoyed sightseeing cruises, drinks on the flybridge or dinners out, depending on the weather and the time of day.

With a wedding in September, it was easy for some "interstaters" to find time for a visit as well!!

City living has many advantages - easy access to public transport, pubs and restaurants close by, museums and markets to explore. We walked, we cycled, we rode the tram and the train. We had dinners and lunches, breakfasts and desserts in different locations - it was wonderful. We made the most of it and loved every minute of it, but all good things come to an end and it's almost summer time - so a holiday on the Gippsland Lakes is certainly something to look forward to!!
