Melbourne

Our flight to Australia was long, but fairly painless. We flew to LA, then Sydney and finally Melbourne. It was a red-eye, so we mostly slept, but I did get in some knitting while watching episodes of The Office on my iPhone. After a quick shower at our hotel, Larry's friend Ben picked us up and took us on a whirlwind tour. We drove out to Hanging Rock Park. It was a lovely place and we saw all kinds of birds.
After a short walk, we visited Hanging Rock Winery and tasted some lovely wines. Then it was back to Melbourne for dinner. On the way I almost scared our poor host to death when I shouted out because I spotted kangaroos! They were just hanging out in a field with some cattle. We also saw some parrots that might have been Rosellas. I need an Aussie bird book before I can tell you for sure.
We're packing up now to return to Sydney for Larry's next meeting. So far, Australia rocks!
