Cloudy day in Melbourne, Australia

Yarra Promenade stretches for about 2 blocks along the Yarra River. It is a popular place for locals and tourists. The Crown Entertainment Complex– which houses a casino, cinema, some retails outlets and a number of upmarket restaurants – is located here.

These photos were taken last week, while the sun was taking a day off. I hope to show some photos of this place when it’s sunny and lovely soon :).

The Melbourne CBD – where the buildings are –  is a short walk  from here.

Row, row, row your boat… training continues no matter what the weather is.

That looks like a fun, colorful place to visit whether the sun is shining or not. Nice of that bird to pose for you.

Melbourne is a beautiful city. I was there a very long time ago and really enjoyed our stay.

You made me smile because while you are looking for the sun in Melbourne I'm looking for it in Ontario (Canada). Where is it hiding?

What a beautiful modern city!
