Day tripping- Coburg

Whilst visiting relatives, the girls and I walked through the streets of Coburg. There were some lovely old houses, many with the original features. I particularly loved the numbers attached to the walls of many of these houses. I couldn't get many pics as the sun was going down, but here's a couple to whet your appetite.

Sunny winter days.

The weather has been perfect this week. Cold, frosty mornings followed by warm, sunny afternoons. Just right for a bit of a sleep in and an afternoon walk. I drove to Heathmont and Croydon South today and had a bit of a wander around and took some photos. I was pleased to see that many of the houses in Heathmont have been kept in an original or close to original state. There's a bit of rendering and painting of exteriors to modernise things, but shapes are kept the same and landscaping has been done to suit. It was a difficult area to photograph as it is heavily treed and the sun was a bit to high. But here's some eye candy to peruse.
