Another lane way.
Mr Wanderer took me cycling again. We ended up having lunch in the city and then a coffee before heading back.
Only to be caught in the middle of the protest. I’ve never been so scared in my life!
They were intimidating! Thugs! They blocked the whole intersection and the trams were all piled up! I couldn’t even contemplate riding through it. We were on Swanston (cathedral).
A girl that was walking saw us stopping and asked if she could walk with us across the intersection. I replied yes. So she walked in between our bikes.
Mr Wanderer stayed on to film the police charging once the stand off was over!

I could hear a guy intimidating a passers by behind me thus as soon as I got to Federation Square I got on my bike and rode all the way home.
I’m embarrassed to say I was scared in a city I called home. I’ve always felt safe in Melbourne. And on Tuesday I was scared. I feared for my life.
Mr Wanderer thought it was all exciting! I guess he has never lived in a war torn country so he seeks excitement. I seek peace!
After a shower Mr Wanderer dropped me off on the way to his second AZ jab. I don’t think I’ll see him again any time soon.
How cute? A couple? They follow each other around.
Different scenery. Albert Park lake.
My girl friend and I walked around the lake. It’s about 5km.
It’s a man made lake.
I walked back via Albert Park village. Just to window shop. To see what’s there.
Love the old buildings.

I’ve always wondered what was this building about?
They had their gate opened so I had a peep 😂
It’s a convent!
You were nice to that woman. I’ve been around enough of those demonstrations in my life to know to stay away from them.
Great pics. Hope your neck is feeling better from looking up to take so many of them. 🙂 – Marty
Thanks Marty! I was terrified myself so it’s not a biggie! It didn’t cross our mind that we’d run into them. As when we rode in we saw a lot of police. The public was going up to them to thank them for their service.
So thought nothing of it! My kids told me to stay away from the city for next few days.

A convent…hoping it wasn’t a sneak peak of foreshadowing!!!! I don’t like confrontations of any sort. You are a brave woman and kind to help let another through! Love your place..am sorry you saw a mess in the middle of it! One of those areas of the world I’d like to visit someday.
Kris. Hopefully it’s calmed down. Yesterday was a fizzer! And one of the protesters ended up in hospital with Covid on Wednesday!
