Studley Park Boathouse

Yarra Bend Park was the ideal place for a bit of urban nature study during our trip to Melbourne last week.

We took a pleasant stroll along the Yarra River to see the water birds...

oh - and a peewee...

and then retreated from the cold into the Studley Park Boathouse for a Raspberry Spider. (Are these Australian, or do you have them in other places as well?)

Of course, once there it was easy to talk us into lunch...it was 2:30pm, after all...

Suddenly Jemimah realised that she'd swallowed her olive pip...oops!

Gotta love the city!!

  4. Never heard of a Raspberry... Oh man, I forgot the name. But it looks yummy!

  5. oh I love the pictures. We have spiders here regularly. They are one of our favourite treats.

  6. Now I am craving a Raspberry Spider - had to look up the name though.
