Today I started off with breakfast and then spent a half hour trying to find a chemist. What a nice cold I woke up with yesterday, and it just got to my head this morning. That finally went okay so I jumped on a tram to St Kilda. I stopped off to have a look at the Shrine of Remembrance. That was pretty moving.

I was right in front of the fireworks when they went off - very few people on my side of the river, so it was quite a good show.
Later I tried to get a photo of the flames, but I didn’t succeed I just kept missing the bursts. Still it was something to watch.
