The rest of Saturday's glee

Heading back over the Westgate on our way to St Kilda


St Kilda's lovely old Palais Theatre


A different side to Luna Park's Mr Moon entrance


Melbourne's Luna Park is 100 years old next month


Luna Park's beautiful carousel. As we took photos, 
a group of 60-something couples saddled up. 
You're never too old for a merry-go-round


We're midgets! Oh, how we laughed


 Early evening, St Kilda Pier


When I looked at this photo of a skydiver over
 St Kilda on my PC, I realised I'd also taken a photo 
of two rainbow lorikeets sitting in a tree

After St Kilda, we drove to Richmond for a burger and Fritz Gelato. Before we decided to go to Williamstown, Luke asked me what I wanted to do with the day and my only plan was to have the blood orange gelati at Fritz Gelato. I had to resist the lure of all the icecream shops in Willamstown to hold out for Fritz, and it was worth the wait. I had the blood orange, passionfruit and lemon. They were all zesty and tangy and delicious.

 Finally, here's all the old signs from Saturday and a couple from Sunday.


McWilliams Cream Sherry, on the derelict 
Britannia Hotel in Williamstown (below)




I can't tell what this one says. When I got out of the
 car to take this photo...


I saw this one on the side of another pub in Williamstown


The best sign find of the day (thanks to Luke)

There's several signs on this old grocery store on Melbourne Road, Williamstown. Some are too faint to make out, but some  are clear enough to read. 

 Berger Master paint - keeps on keeping on. It looks 
like there might be another old sign underneath


 Kem-Tone?


McAlpins




Cheap cash grocer


 Nestle's Chocolate, Burnley Street, Richmond
 (taken Sunday)


Fancy a counter lunch at the Grand Hotel? 
Turns out pubs are quite a good source of
 old signs. Also on Burnley Street 


This isn't an old sign, but it amuses me. I guess it turned
 out Keith was way better at pasties than pies
