Zoo and Xmas lights

Hello again.....just look at this relaxing Baboon......On Saturday while still in the city we decided to visit the zoo.....Year members and only been twice lol  All the Baboons were sleeping just like this one 

Giraffe in with some Zebras 

Peter Pan statue, which I had never noticed before.....

Lemurs all relaxing together trying to keep warm 

They refused to look my way.....

Some mini stork bird 

Elephant way off in distance

Pelicans free to come and go, but reckon they would like staying just for the feeding times lol 

Notice how most animals are way off  trying to hide 

3 lions here which are only 2 years old 
We had a good walk around and then caught the tram back 

And dropped into Crown Casino and a photo of their xmas tree, exactly the same as last year 

And their xmas light show which is on every 30 minutes, lots of carols being sung 

We then caught another tram to Port Melbourne where the ships depart from.....My cousin Lisa and her girls and grandgirls were on this ship.....3 day fun cruise ☺☺

Woody relaxed back at the apartment Saturday night 

Sunday we drove home and took a snap of a park called Gumbya World which is about to re-open December 18 more details here was just an animal park with toboggan ride but now so much more....

Back home relaxing again with Downton Abbey

Star wars in the city

Here we are back in the city and I have done a little bit of xmas decorations......don't know who will come here over xmas but well......all done 

The skull that Rex gave me looking festive 

Our mini tree with the xmas train 

Something I crocheted a long time ago 

And turned the calendar page, love this calendar 

I have completed that blanket for someone 

Now on Thursday night caught up with Rex and Jason and this is the only pic I took lol Us waiting for tram looking back across the road 

Plenty of rain fell and we got a little bit wet lol 

Woody relaxing in the evening here 

Yesterday (Friday) we went to the Vic Market and it was rather quiet.....usually busy busy......

And later ran in to these 2.......well actually, Carl on the left, grabbed me and almost gave me a heart attack lol and his oldest boy Chris, my nephew.......we had a quick lunch with them 

Then on our way back we saw this at Southern Cross station.......

Yes a full size replica of Xwing from star can even go up those stairs and sit in it 

Side view......pretty neat eh?

The movie is coming out here on the 14th December 

So plenty of signage around 

We had a relaxing wine in the afternoon 

And enjoyed these popcorn shrimps.....Yum 

Going up the escalators I took a final pic of the Xwing 

Walking back to our pad we stopped to check the building going up near us.......if you look through this  you will see our building and the next lot of pics are a bit of history for this area 

Interesting for sure 

And look.......I bought a dress at the market and love this......even with colourful socks and my boots lol 

Paul relaxed last night after a lot of walking......
Today we may go check out the zoo and also book tickets for Star Wars xoxoxo

Friend catchup ♥

Yesterday we had a little trip to catchup with friends we have not seen in a YEAR lol 

We live roughly 90 mins apart but guess life/stuff had got in the way. 

A bit of hooking along the road 

And we arrived and met their son's dog a lovely Samoyed 

Their they are, Grace and Tony 

There little dog Cooper was very excited to see us as we even visited them when they lived in Queensland which is 2-3 day car trip away or flying. His memory is good ☺

Woody went out to lunch with us 

And a real nice selfie of the 2 of us ☺

We had a great lunch and came back to their house for a bit more fun chatting 

Paul enjoying a drink way up the other end of the table ☺

Samoyed close up lol 

Cooper relaxing 

We also enjoyed playing this interesting game 

Hello Grace ♥  We had such a good catchup and they are coming to our home in a few weeks to stay a night ☺☺

Relaxed last night under my lovely old crochet blanket made by my Nana ♥

Today I whipped up some almond milk.....rather easy to make....soak nuts in water for a day or 2.....discard water and then into bullet with fresh water buzz buzz.....then strain to get rid of skin pulp and there you have it.....

Paul was not a fan lol 
It tasted ok and used today in a seeded bread (low carb) and rather pic taken lol 
Well back to the city we go tomorrow xoxoxo
