Sunday outing

It was one of those rare Sundays...Nathan actually had the day off! We decided to start out day with brunch at Amici Bakery and Cafe on Chapel Street. We could have taken the train (which would have been heaps quicker) but opted for the tram instead. We got off at the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street and walked to the bakery/cafe.

After brekky, we decided to cross the road and take a look inside the Chapel Street Bazaar where I nearly regurgitated my breakfast after seeing a fluffy white dog throw up over it's owner(who was carrying it at the time).

From there we walked to Tarlo and Graham to check out more bric-a-brac. Nearly bought myself a stuffed tawny frogmouth, which is a kind of bird that looks stuffed even when it is alive (see photo) but Nathan talked me out of it...I guess we don't really need any stuffed animals in the apartment.

After Tarlo and Graham, Nate and I caught a tram over to St Kilda. Went into a store called Urban Attitude and picked up one of these for my soy sauce (it makes up for the tawny frogmouth).

Had the best gelato EVER at some random ice cream shop, then caught a tram back into the city. A short walk and we were on Brunswick Street having afternoon drinks at The Provincial Hotel. As can be seen from this photo I randomly downloaded from the web, it looks a little run down on the outside but is actually a really nice venue.

More walking, another tram and finally home. My legs are like lead. Nathan is crashed on the couch.

I like the distressed look of The Provincial. Sounds like a great day out.

I love, love, love breakfast at Amici - the poached eggs and meatballs dish is greedy but oh so tasty.

The meatball brekky is my favourite too but was trying to be a bit healthier ordering the vego option for a change (with the lashings of smoked salmon on the side).
