This is my favourite mailbox in all of Kingsville. There’s often an outdoor bin just below it as well :)
Some trees are preparing for winter: steadily, gracefully shedding their leaves. Others are overachievers and were ready to go *days* ago.
In our continuing series on the cats of Kingsville, here's one from today who really cares only for sun warmfs.
All grey skies and silver linings.
One of the perks of working at Transurban is that you can sign up for tours of our major construction projects — which is how I found myself on a tour of the West Gate Tunnel Project last week :)
I love the West Gate Tunnel Project because, as someone who lives in Melbourne’s west, I know first hand how much of a pain it can be to drive into the city.
Once complete, this new toll road will make it much easier for folks coming from the west — ie the Western Ring Road (M80) or the West Gate Freeway (M1) — to get into the western side of Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD).
Right now, if you’re driving into the city from the west, you have two options: (a) go through Footscray by taking Geelong/Williamstown road and then Dynon/Footscray road or (b) take the West Gate Bridge and get to the south of the CBD.
The West Gate Tunnel will give us a third option, albeit a tolled one: (c) take the tunnel under Yarraville and the Maribyrnong River, followed by the elevated roadway above Footscray Road. Then connect to Footscray Road, Dynon Road (near North Melbourne railway station), or Wurundjeri Way to get into the city; or take the on-ramp to CityLink and go north.
Sadly, this project is still three years away from completion so there’s nothing to do but wait.
On the up-side: this means I’ll get to go on more project construction tours over the coming years :)
Looking forward to a lot of rain overnight tonight!
Another day, another golden sunset on a partly cloudy day in Melbourne.
Melbourne’s sky has been fantastic to see and photograph these last few days. Like today’s golden sunset.
Also, I discovered my office building casts quite a large shadow when there’s a bright sun behind it.
It’s supposed to get sunny (sunnier?) in Melbourne today, but I have to say I’m enjoying the partly cloudy morning so far.
Blue skies, bright sky, puffy white-and-grey clouds. Melbourne was showing off today.
On Thursdays we wear grey (hoodies). At least on this bus we do.
Battening down the hatches.
Ah, Melbourne. The place where I wear a rain shell and sunglasses while walking the dog. My clothes are still wet, but my face is now warm.
Heading home from a comedy show in the city on Good Friday.
Gorgeous Thursday evening sunset in Docklands, Melbourne. A lovely end to a short week before the Easter long weekend.
You get great views of the clouds from the 29th floor of a building in Docklands.
You know you’re in Melbourne when you have to wear sunglasses and be under an umbrella at the same time. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Looks like it’s raining across Sunshine this afternoon. Or maybe that’s Deer Park? I don’t know — it’s difficult to judge distance from this far away without an obvious landmark!
