"Indian Summer. I love you the best Better than all the rest."

- The Doors Indian Summer

Today was an' Indian Summer' sort  of day. 22 degrees, sunny - just lovely. Met up with E after she'd gotten off work and had a drink down at what is one of my favourite little spots in Melbourne, Pony Island. The bar is under the walkway bridge over the Yarra River in South Bank and has just such a lovely, laid back, summer vibe. The music was a bit crap today but other than that....

After that went for a bit of a window shop. E has impeccable taste but unfortunately both of us are trying to be wise with our funds...... but we can still look! We would've bought heaps of socks but we're struggling to find exactly what we're looking for. Neither 'Big W' or 'Socks Club' in Melb. Central shopping arcade had what we were after.

We then went to have a bit of a bite at another favourite spot of ours, Lounge on Swanston St. No longer has a down stairs (which is missed) but still a nice spot with some yummy food. [Sorry no photo for that.]

Next we thought we'd find a new place, and while we didn't end up at our intended destination (Berlin) the one we found, Fad Bar, was a nice spot. The bar tender might have been inexperienced but she was friendly, and it's not her fault the manager doesn't carry sweet vermouth.
