Sunday in Melbourne

Today we did a bit of a road trip, out to Ballarat then on to Woodend and back to Melbourne - with specific stops and people to meet along the way.
For breakfast I (finally) got to meet my blogging friend Jan (Little Red Hen blog). It's only taken a couple of years! We met in the gorgeous little cafe L'espresso in Ballarat and had a delicious breakfast. We've been friends for years and it was so good to finally meet. Thank you Jan for the gorgeous gift and I really enjoyed catching up with you this morning.
We continued our long Sunday drive and ended up at a terrific pub in Woodend - The Holgate Brewhouse. Not only did we have a superb lunch and get to try a paddle of Holgates finest beers but I got to meet the chef!!! That's very special as he just happens to be the son of my lovely friend Mary in my Tuesday Stitching Group back home. So this photo is specially for you Mary.
Back to my brothers for a few supplies now we are off again to the tennis. Looking forward to seeing Djokovic tonight!!
Hope you've had a great weekend!

Edit: It is 2 am and the match went for 5 hours 2 minutes. Best match I've ever seen! The last photo is of the very end of the match when Djokovic won the match. The whole stadium is on their feet and you can see that even at 2 am and after 5 hours hardly anyone has left. The atmosphere was electric and it was easily the best match I have ever seen.

And you were there to see it - you lucky gal. I watched nearly all of it on the tele. Got to 11-10 and went to sleep in the lazy chair, woke up it was all over and had to go to bed not knowing who had one LOL. Guessed that Novak would have prevailed though. He is a true champion. Sounds like you are having a busy and delightful time. Happy travelling, Di.
