Today was the day I decided to check out the Melbourne Aquarium. The aquarium is situated right along the Yarra River in Central Business District (CBD) of Melbourne. I took the #8 tram from our area to the CBD and then had a 4 block walk. When I got my ticket, the ticket seller told me that the aquarium was undergoing some renovations and I was given a free adult ticket for a later visit. I was under-whelmed by the displays at the aquarium and hope the upgrades make the place more exciting. I did like seeing the penguins, but there was only one small tank with jelly fish. I love the jellies, and know that there are many more that could have been part of a display. So I will give the aquarium another chance after I hear that the renovations are complete. Jim thinks that since we visited the Monterey Aquarium, all other aquariums will come up short. This may be true, but I didn’t feel like I got my money’s worth today.
There were rain showers this morning, but my time in the CBD was sunny and clear. It wasn’t until I started walking home, along the Yarra River, that the rain resumed! At one point it was raining and the sun was out~couldn’t find a rainbow though!
Today was the last day of my 10 day trial membership at the yoga studio I was trying. I enjoy the classes and the times that the classes are offered work for me so I bought a 10-class package. I must admit that I have been very spoiled by taking my yoga classes at J&J, where I didn’t have to pay for them! But I can also say that my J&J yoga instructors (I know that yoga teachers have a formal title, but I cannot remember it) have prepared me well for these AU classes.
Here are some photos from the aquarium and the beautiful city that I now call home!
