Walk about Fremantle AUS

I LOVE small port cities in Australia.  Walked around Fremantle today....outside of Perth.  Reminds me of Hobart relaxing.  Sooooooooooooooooooo many coffee shops and street seating cafe's.  I think I was born in the wrong country.

Pics from quick stroll in downtown Melbourne on first day

I love the atmosphere of Melbourne.  I particularly like the mixture of old and new architecture.

Anethenaum club in Melboure

A few pic's of the Anethenaum club in Melbourne....where Wally is a member and we get to stay.  The place is very proper (no blue jeans) and men only (women can only be guests).  This is very old money in Melbourne.

Watching Vikes on computer at 4 am in AUS

Sunday morning jog in Adelaide AUS

Took a jog this AM through the University of Adelaide campus and some nearby buildings.  Love the buildings and atmosphere.  Stopped at times to take some pictures.

Tomorrow starts the big "work" part of the trip.  Have only done one presentation so far and have one to do tomorrow here in Adelaide, then two to do in Melbourne and then two in Perth.  Leave for Melbourne tomorrow after I present...........let then the games begin.

Vineyard tour with Wally in Barossa Valley AUS

Wally took me on a tour of vineyards in the Barossa Valley (outside Adelaide AUS) this afternoon.  We visited three wineries and did some serious wine/port tasting.  I felt like I was in the movie "Sideways."  It was actually quite interesting and fun....but by the end I was very tired and needed a nap.  A few shots below.
