Happy to be back.

Hello,  Let me say I'm happy to be back to catch up with what has been happening on here.
Back from our 6 day Coach tour to Melbourne , Victoria. Visiting the Tutankhamum and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs amazing Exhibition temporarily housed in the Melbourne Museum.Viewing the dazzling array of posessions unearthed from his tomb along with his family.
Also touring the Dandenongs Mountain with it's lovely forest and lush ferns,quaint hilltop villages, lovely tea rooms, cafes and gardens.

Our Touring Coach.

I must say it was very relaxing being driven everywhere.
The Dandenongs and Olinda village.








Heading along the winding roads surrounded by beautiful tall old Mountain Ash. We lunched at the charming village of Olinda the highest in the Dandenongs at the Bavarian Cuckoo Restuarant.


Playing music with the Cow Bells and band.

Our accommodation while in Melbourne was at the Sebel Citigate Albert Park hotel.



While there I finished my 2 ufo's sewing cases .I mentioned before ,they just needed the binding sewn and nearly finished my knitted baby cardigan only the seams need to be finished on that .Yeah! a couple more from my list of UFO'S .

It is good to be back and seeing what everyone has achieved while I have been away this week.I really missed popping in to all I follow.
Till next time.

It looks like you had a wonderful trip and the Tutankhamen exhibition must have been amazing. My husband was very keen to see this exhibition but somehow we didn't make it - I must admit I have been loath to leave the Far North in winter. Thank you for your lovely comments and visiting my blog. Take care.
