Thanks

 

But we paid for this dearly in terms of cruise - only Sapphire left and I honestly doubt the ship will come back this season 😞

 

Michael

No, Sapphire probably won't come back this season, nor any other ships to other Australian ports. We can only hope for a vaccine so we can start cruising again in the 21/22 season.

Looking good again, Melbourne. Hang in there.

Remember Sydney had 12 days with no community transmission then the virus popped up again without warning. Stay safe.

Happy dance for everyone in Melbourne.  Lots of restrictions eased from midnight.  Too many to mention.  You can now travel 25 klm from midnight.  Will that get you to the beach/water, Don?  Will that allow everyone living in Melbourne to see your loved ones?  

Melbourne people can now visit their second homes to prepare them for fire season/floods, with council certificate to say work is necessary.

Great stuff, if only they can keep those pesky Kiwis from spreading it now.🤪

 

Apparently the NZers are not so pesky.   There were 2 meetings last week where the CHO for Victoria attended (remotely) and he agreed the NZers could come to Vic (according to the Federal Immigration Minister).  The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing and they all cannot remember what they did 2 seconds ago.   Oh and by the way the average virus rate in NZ is 0.

Firstly, it was sarcasm,

Secondly, sure come to Melbourne and enjoy the lock down.

Right and lockdown is horrible and we are all so sick of it.   Sunday 1st Nov - the shops will be full of people, better to wait a day or so.

I don’t think anyone’s flying in for a holiday. It would be to return to their job, their family or their home .

Used the mapper from The Age to see where I can go at 25km.  Not that I can drive for more than about 15 minutes. A lot of my zone is very wet.

Should be some good scenic drives along the waterfront.

Definitely, the waterfront in Melbourne is lovely (but you can usually say that of any waterfront).  I am not quite on the waterfront but very close and we have decided to pick up a takeaway coffee near Port Melbourne tomorrow and walk around there for something different.

A reasonable amount of our allowed area is the bay as well. We could drive along Beach Rd to just after Brighton to the north and along the bay toMt Martha to the south.

You will be able to enjoy nice waterfront drives on the Bay also, plus some waterfront to the South East.  Are your family within the 25 klm.

But couldn't you go for a drive to exercise at a nice quiet spot on the water, which I think is unlimited?  Libraries are reopening.

So anyone with family within 50 km could each go up to 25 km and meet in the middle. Early spring would make for a lovely picnic everybody bring yummy picnic stuff and share in a park, all outdoors and be careful with distance

It is a big change that the 2 hour exercise/recreation/socialising limit has been removed.

 

So, can go to nice spots, recreate, catch up with some friends or family.

 

Now, if I only had some friends. 🤪

I have been doing some overlapping circles to check what is in between.

 

Some places I would like to go are, however, beyond my 25km.

Isn't always the way?  I always smile when I think of the older lady who was able to drive to the Gold Coast from Logan, when people were restricted to 50 kms.  She lived on the southside of Logan and drove 50 klm then stopped right at the most northern beach. The Govt made the limit 50 kms to stop city people swamping the beach.

Can you go to Daylesford or Dandenong Mountains or are they Regional?

Yes.  This is a lovely time of year in Melbourne for a scenic drive to picnic with family or friends (limit on numbers).

Yes we will be able to go for drives along the bay both ways. Son and his family live in the same suburb so we do see them, daughter and her family lived just outside the 5km radius so easily in now.
