Enjoying a Surprise Trip into Melbourne



A relatively new tradition for us is taking a trip into Melbourne to see the Christmas lights and Melbourne Town Hall laser show.  We went to see this last year and it was with great anticipation for this year that I surprised Sir N with a trip into Melbourne on the train to see the show.


It was so much fun catching the train and surprising Sir N this year.  The sunset was amazing and lights and sounds were beautiful.


The Melbourne Town Hall was decked out for Christmas and the tin soldiers were at their posts guarding the grounds. You can watch a YouTube clip of the Laser Light Show on YouTube.


From here we meandered up to have a look at this years Myer Christmas Windows. Last year the theme was based on the book Russell's Christmas Magic by Rob Scotton.  This year it is the 58th year that the tradition has been continued. The windows have been modeled on the book Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett.  You can see a YouTube clip on the production of this years windows.




I'm always amazed at the work that is lovingly put into producing these windows. 


There are some amazingly beautiful sights and sounds to be seen during Christmas in Melbourne..  Do you have any beautiful window displays that you see each year ?

Blessings
