I got back to Melbourne around 5:30pm on Tuesday.

After shopping for my friend’s birthday pressie I had time to waste so I went walkies.

I’m glad I walked as I found these! Hidden away near a car park. You’d never see them from a street. I saw a bit of colour and it made me explore. The laneway is a bit dodgy so I entered it from a car park exit. That way I can gauge if I should be there or not.

I wonder why it’s called Shakespeare hotel?

See the guy standing there? Thought I was seeing double! Looked just like Mr Wanderer!

And of course we had dinner at our favourite Italian, Il Carretto in North Carlton. I’ve been going there since my daughter was born and she’s 24 this year.

They make a mean spaghetti marinara and creme caramel.
