Weekend Wanderings: Wrapping up the Year Part 2

leannecole-banyuleflats-20140525-9413

It was great to hear how many of you enjoyed the photos yesterday and today I thought I would do the same thing, well similar, show you a selection of images that I have taken in Melbourne.  They aren’t just photos of the city, there are also photos taken within the metropolitan area of Melbourne.

There are parks and gardens galore in Melbourne, so much so it used to be called the garden state.

I was a bit shocked when I realised how many images of this area I have taken and how many posts, apparently 56, that is a good number.  So with 37 posts on the country areas, and 56 on Melbourne Metro, that is 93 posts, though to make up the rest I did go back and revisit some older posts.  I think it is quite an impressive number, and so glad that I have done it.  I can’t wait to see what next year brings and the places I will visit, it should be a good year, I hope you will have as much fun.

  6. The tiger lapping water in the zoo—-what a great capture!

    December 28, 2014
    • We did wait a long time for that too Lois, he was being shy, and wouldn’t come out, everyone else left and we stuck around, and then there he came, we felt very lucky. Thanks Lois, sometimes patience does pay off.

  19. We have got such a beautiful city! Lovely Leanne.

    December 28, 2014
    • I think so too Chris, thank you.

      December 28, 2014
  20. Beautiful shots! My favorites are the animal pictures, but then I’m probably a little biased 🙂

    December 28, 2014
    • Thank you Tiny, lots of animals here, I was surprised at how often I had been to zoos here.

      December 28, 2014
  21. Wonderful to revisit all the photos, Leanne. Maybe it’s just me, but all the photos seem to have a Melbourne/Victoria feel to them. Wandering certainly takes you places. Even if it’s just your backyard. I hope you get to do more of that next year, I’m sure you will. Happy holidays, hope you are having a good time with your family 🙂

    December 28, 2014
    • I like the idea of the photos have a Melbourne/Victoria feel, I hope so. It takes, I am always looking for new places to go and take photos. Thank you Mabel, I hope you have had a good time with your family. 😀

      December 28, 2014
  22. A belated Merry Christmas to you and your family Leanne, and all the very best in 2015!

    December 28, 2014
    • Thank you so much and a belated Merry Christmas to you too and all the best for 2015 as well.

  23. I was trying to comment on these pictures but for some reason my iPad is not allowing it. I’m really loving the shots. The tiger is my favorite I think. A large Tiddles with stripes! And those giraffes are amazing because they are all sitting down.

    December 28, 2014
    • It is annoying that, the WP app can be rubbish at time. Thank you Laura, it has been nice going through them all. Yes, unusual for giraffes to sit down, apparently they never do it in the wild, takes them too long to get up if danger comes close, no danger where these ones live.

      December 28, 2014
      • I wonder if it would take the giraffe or me longer to stand up LOL.

        December 29, 2014
      • They are very awkward when they stand up, I’m sure, especially now that you are recovering so well that you would beat them, maybe if you come here we can put it to the test, LOL

        December 29, 2014
      • haha okie dokie, me and the giraffes…definitely a children’s book in the making!

        December 29, 2014
      • Oh yes, I can see it now, you will have to do it.

        December 29, 2014
  24. makes me want to explore a city full of such diverse beauty. lovely.

    December 29, 2014
    • I hope you get to explore Melbourne then one day, there is so much here. Thank you.
