Photos: first of all the Melbourne airport carpet at the Qantas end. This is a continuation and addition to American Barbara’s wonderful carpet post:¬†https://silverinthebarn.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/flying-carpets/

Australian airports don’t have the flair that we saw in Barbara’s post of her various carpets in America. Ours seem to be made for heavy traffic and are very mundane and practical. She has made me far more aware of where I’m treading.

I stayed at a B&B on the Mersey River, Devonport, the same road that I lived on as a child. It was wonderful waking up and seeing the river over the parade opposite.

Walking in Devonport each evening was such a peaceful way to exercise. I had no fear after the sun went down walking on my own. Many joggers use the path which has been resurfaced in a soft material.
