Where: the mouth of the Yarra River

What: the way this retaining wall looks, it seems the mouth of the Yarra River might be a bit wider in the near future

the mouth of the Yarra…

One of my favourite bike rides is to go along the foreshore from St Kilda to the mouth of the Yarra. Just where the road turns towards the city at Life Saving Victoria there’s the Perce White Reserve public car park which takes you to a path that goes right round the edge of Patrick Stevedores where they unload all the new cars and buses. There’s usually a handful of people fishing from the rocks, otherwise it’s just you, the sea and the sky.

touristy Melbourne weekend…

I was blessed with a visit from UK friends living in Sydney who soon depart for other exotic shores and home. We packed many of the main tourist spots in and by Sunday night my leg muscles protested mightily.

Riverland is a great spot to take people for a bite to eat or a drink. Right by the river, under Federation Square.

It wasn’t too bad in the city but at St Kilda it blew a mighty gale. The kite surfers were out in force. No one got their wires tangled though. It was amazing to see how high over the water they flew sometimes.

While waiting to meet them on Sunday morning I took occasion to see what I could make of a vantage point of the Swanston Street bridge over the Yarra. Here’s some I like. As per usual, the devil’s in the detail…
