Although Melbourne is situated on the shores of one of the largest bays on the Australian coast, the city's main water feature is the Yarra River. As it winds down from the Yarra Valley, it enters the City and provides much opportunity for leisure activities along its banks and in the water. We are lucky to live close to a beautiful spot along the Yarra, here shown. It is the Yarra close to Fairfield Boathouse.
You've got to love dogs!

Nice shots. Looks like a great place to paddle. The water looks brown,yet not muddy. :)ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh....that dog is enjoying every minute in the water swimming. How fun is this blog? Way fun!ReplyDelete
Beautiful river -- quiet and peaceful, my kind of place. But, I think that girl is kayaking, not canoing. I know this because I am trying, with limited success, to learn to kayak!ReplyDelete
Yes indeed it is kayaking, Sallie! You can tell I'm no water rat - they looked the same to me till I disambiguated the pair canoe/kayak with trusty old google. Now corrected!Delete
Wow :) I've not tried kayaking ever. Too chicken to do so. LOL. Nice shots.ReplyDelete
