The next day Saturday and Paul and Emily were not working and the kids were not at school. So we went to Salamanca Markets. Emily has the best parking spot for the markets even on busy days.
A stroll around the markets, a visit to Princes Park (Paul works for the council caring for this park and others), then to the Signal House (the park once housed canon to protect the Harbour) and back to the markets.
Lunch was followed by a trip to the other side of the harbour for scones and coffee with Emily’s parents. The Sydney Swans were playing North Melbourne at Bellerive Oval and that is where they live at Howrah so a little bit of excitement there. Paul wanted to show us the matching gun emplacement on this side of the harbour before we fell upon the scones and coffee.
Like all good things our trip came to an end and we returned to much warmer weather to prepare for the working week.
