Melbourne Teddy Bear Fair Weekend
Hi everyone! Well, it's taken me a week to get organised after my whirlwind trip interstate to Melbourne on 5th & 6th May. With my girlfriend (and neighbour) in tow, the weekend started out with a 2.5 hour drive from my hometown to Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport - lots of fun spent chatting and laughing. We treated ourselves to a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers on the flight (something I wouldn't normally do, but am so glad we did!) Arrived in Melbourne to dreary skies and cold weather - so glad I rugged up and brought my thick jacket and a couple of scarves! We picked up the hire car and found our way to the hotel in the city - easy when you have a GPS ha! ha! As promised, we met up with Wayne Lim (Wayneston Bears) and his family who flew all the way from Singapore to attend the show - our first stop: The Eureka Skydeck on Melbourne's Southbank - 88 floors up and nothing in between us and the road below except a glass floor!!!!
