Leaving Melbourne - train tracks and graffiti wall behind station

To the right of the Exhibition building is the Melbourne Museum, just across the grass.   You can see its reflection in the glass below.

Flinders Street station, the main city station.  The country trains leave from Southern Cross station.

St Paul's Anglican cathedral in Melbourne. I used to come here every morning before work to pray.   It is a beautiful cathedral. School children were singing the Halleluyah chorus, and their orchestra played Trumpet Voluntary, which was magnificent.

A nice restful time.   Thank you Lord.

It is good to catch the train rather than drive, as I can relax, sleep, read, which I can't do driving.  

Back in the lovely open spaces of the rural area.   So quiet and restful in the train -- look, read, sleep.   

Oh yes, and take photographs too. Could not go anywhere without taking pictures -- for you.

The cathedral is over the road from Flinders Station

Nearing Melbourne and the main country station, Southern Cross.   I like the look of the blue buildings.

"Search me, O God, and know my heart, try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way  in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."  Psalm 139:24.25.

The helpful city guides in red.

The entrance to the IMAX theatre from inside the museum. I saw The Beautiful Planet.   It was good, but they used it to push global warming, a very controversial subject.

This is my favourite busker from Peru. He plays the pan flute and it is beautiful.  

The Exhibition building, an old building, but kept in good order.  Lots of exhibitions are held here, such as the flower show, the car show, the furniture show, the home show etc.

I only went to Melbourne for the weekend to stay with my daughter.   She lives in the outskirts of the city in a beautiful area.   It is not always easy to get pictures from the train, but I managed to get some that give an idea of the countryside.   Just relax and enjoy.

A gift shop for Australian gifts to take home, even a yellow kangaroo.
