Back to my routine...

Hello all,

Thanks for your comments and wishes on my last post . I was away for some time because Anshita was down with chicken pox and was at home for more than two weeks :( She is fine now and since she was vaccinated earlier so she was moderately affected . She started going to school from today . But all this happened when Raj was on his US trip and I was alone to struggle with and she missed her school tests as well :(  When he was back , I got cold and fever so I took rest and read books . 

I  was working on crochet cushion which I will share in next blog post . Here are the remaining pictures of my family trip to Australia .

In Melbourne , we stayed in an apartment type hotel in a 2 bedroom apartment suite with all the facilities in kitchen . Although I did not cook but we could order Indian food online there .

Views from the sit out of the apartment and also from the bedroom window

Melbourne exhibition building
The Science Museum next to it was very nice and there was a Jurassic world exhibition at that time which had many giant dinosaur robots . If anyone is a dinosaur fan, I will share the videos .

We could not visit this church because of timings and most of our trips were Full day and outside Melbourne 

The apartment we stayed in

We visited Phillip island near Melbourne to see 'Penguin Parade' where every evening hundreds of  penguins return to their nests . We saw them from underground covered area which was the nearest you could see . Photography was not allowed there . These are the pics from their app . These penguins are the smallest of the species known as Little Penguin and are around 13 inches in height . It was nice seeing them walk into their nests in natural habitat .

They looked like Penguin babies , so cute :)

Melbourne cricket ground . A visit to cricket ground is always a part of an Indian's itinerary :)

We went on the Great ocean road trip to 12 apostles . We hired a private cab for the day .

On the way we stopped over to see people surfing on the waves

and a light house

There was an area through the village where you can feed wild parrots .

12 apostles...not all can be captured together in a shot . The weather was nice and cool . Good for us as we were visiting after our hot summer in India.

I liked this place a lot !:)
There was a helicopter ride too but since we were running late we did not go for it .

I am done with the sight seeing pics from Australia although there are still lots of pics left unsorted . I have shared my yarn shopping and will share my craft books shopping along with my crochet project in the next post . 

Thanks for seeing !! Will soon visit your blogs .
Have a creative week ahead!
Preeti :)


  1. Good to have you back. You were missed. Hope Anshita and you recover soon.
    Lovely pics from Melbourne. Penguins are my favourite animals , I would love to visit the Penguin parade sometime.Yes no trip is complete without a visit to MCC. My friend also said the same thing about 12 Apostles-can't be captured in one picture. The place really looks breath taking.
