memory fruit among other things

When i saw this yellow fruit sit on top of the piano today,
I thought i better took a photo before it all gone funny........
and i should also tell you a bit about our trip down Melbourne.

I had to warn you beforehand though, when i am telling a story or anything involve time, my grammar will be all over the place.
So on the safe side, i am not going to tell you the detail story of the next door neighbour's garage on fire at midnight........
or the caravan that we stayed in went live at on point...........
( the important thing is nobody was hurt and that's end of the story!)

What i would love to share with you is we had an incredibly calming and relaxing time catching up with friends.
The flys were incredibly easy and fast. it took only an hour and a bit instead of taking a whole day to drive down.
I figure out if we can plant more trees next time we will do it all over again!

To play with May and Conor's computer games( Conor is a game developer) and Kung Fu practice weapons is a dream comes true for young Gabriel!

My favourite part was walking around the lane ways of the Northcote neighbourhood with Kerry and her daughters.
Throughout the 1950s the area became home to a large number of Italian and Greek migrants. One of the things these groups of people did was planting fruit trees in their backyards. We spent a good 2 hours walking the Suburb picking and testing fruits hanging out the fences. A true urban hunting and gathering. I love it!!!!!

At the end of the gathering trip, Gabriel said he need to take a memory fruit home and here it is sitting right on top of the piano.

That's so great! It sounds like you all had a wonderful time and I can just see you all picking fruit. I'm sure Gabriel had an excellent time practicing his martial arts! Very cool!

I'd love to visit your country someday. My sister went several years ago and really enjoyed it. I want to see the land and see the some kangaroos and koalas, see the constellations and stars in the southern hemisphere like the Southern Cross, etc. Maybe someday....

Tell Gabriel hello!!
