My final day in Melbourne was here, and we started things off by taking Miss Saskia to daycare.

Her backpack was nearly bigger than her!  But fashion over function right?  We left Saskia to make play dough with her little friends and swung by a coffee shop to kick things off with some caffeine.

Coffee’s consumed, the day was stunning so we made our way to Brighton beach for sun, sand and snapshots.

Perfecting a synchronised jump shot takes time!  Aimee and I sprung up and down like lunatics as my Canon SLR shutter blinked at us rapidly.

We left the beach to the sunbathers and did some window shopping in the boutiques and stores in Brighton, until our watches said ‘lunchtime’.

Good interior, good coffee and good food.  I later discovered this review which truly sums up the place in the most hilarious way possible, click HERE.

We ordered coffees, and I took Dales advice and went for a macchiato just to live on the edge!

I was a fan. If you like your coffee small and strong it’s a good choice, but the enjoyment was over all too soon, so I just stared longingly at Aimee’s larger coffee instead.

Food arrived and it ticked all the looks good and tastes good boxes.

Lunch over, and bellies satisfied it was time to think about heading back home to pack my bags and pick up Saskia from her day of play dough making, before heading for the airport.

Goodbyes are never fun, but if the time spent with friends is awesome, then the inevitable goodbye is a sacrifice always worth making.  And I had an awesome time.

I jumped on the redeye to New Zealand, and my head did that thing it does to everyone on a plane where it wobbles about, whilst your eyelids droop and your mouth drops open.

But then we were almost there, and through the window was the most incredible sunrise.  It was time to get stuck into all things Auckland.  To Be Continued.
