Melbourne on a sunny spring day

It’s a sunny day in Melbourne – after some brief appearances, the sun is shining bright. We took a bike ride to breakfast. Then we kept going with no plan other than to enjoy the sunny day.

These photo are fresh from my point and shoot. The first one above is Bolte Bridge, in the background, with reflections of boats in the foreground.

Very nice, Evelyn.
I almost missed the bridge, looking at the water.

You took beautiful photos.
It's very strange to see it's spring there. We have a lovely autumn here in China. LOve the autumns here. Quite different from Europe.

Enjoy your sunny days.

@ reanaclaire: Ahh, if the whole year is like December - we spend a lot of time outdoors on our bicycles in December. Really lovely, warm and sunny.

I love to take a bike ride to breakfast, but we cannot do it at your home town.

What a pity.

Great shots and the bike ride will keep you both fit.

Wonderful photos, Evelyn. The water seems to shimmer and I can just see the bird fluffing hus wings. Have a happy Sunday.

Indeed, it looks like it was a fine day to enjoy!

Re your comment about the bridge «Louis» posted looking like a roller coaster ride - it FELT like a roller coaster ride! «Louis'» acrophobia kicked in while driving across it. He and Mme la Vache just couldn't get a good set up for this photo. The image posted was taken by Mme la Vache standing in the seat of the Vachemobile and leaning through the open sunroof.
