I love Melbourne. It's one of the best cities I've ever been to. The whole city has this infectious vibe that makes you feel both energized but totally content and relaxed at the same time. I loved the graffitied alley ways, the gorgeous Yarra River dotted with rowers, and the exquisite restaurants. One of our first stops was the Vic Market. I know I have mentioned my love of markets before, and I must say, Vic Market is one of the coolest markets we've visited. In addition to eating some fantastic food, gazing longingly at adorable mini cactus, and shopping for Uggs, we bought some avocados while there to bring back with us! We got to see a couple acts of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival while wandering around the city. All the food we ate was fantastic. I don't know what it is about food in Australia, maybe it's the quality of the produce, but it is the best. And the coffee! I wish I could always drink Australian lattes. We LOVED Sensory Lab, which is where the lattes pictured below are from. While there, I was too in love with everything to really remember to take photos, but here are a couple!

While in Victoria, we spent a day exploring Red Hill and visiting three vineyards. It was such a lovely day! We did a wine tasting at each vineyard, and all the wines were incredible. The views were also fantastic. It was pretty much the perfect autumn day: sunshine, vines, wines, and family.

It's been two weeks since I've shared Findlay photos, so this post is quite long. We still have Phoenix staying with us, so the two of them have become inseparable. They both cheer me up so much when I come home from a long day of teaching!
