Our holiday in Victoria
After leaving Cranbourne Botanic Gardens we headed for Melbourne along the South Eastern Freeway.
Big, huge, terrible mistake.
Melbourne on a Friday evening can be gridlocked at the best of times. Throw in an AFL (Aussie Rules Football) Preliminary Final at the Melbourne Cricket ground and the whole city comes to halt. After several frustrating hours we eventually emerged at the northern end of the city and it was then plain sailing all the way to Gisborne where we were staying with friends of ours.
