On Sunday of course ☀️😎
Gloriously sunny…see there are shadows – and dry also. After all the rain we had it was enough to tempt us to get out and head for the hills; so along with a few other Sunday drivers (not as many as we thought considering how dry and sunny it was) up the Maroondah Highway we went.
Making our way along the valley, the Yarra Valley, past paddocks with a few cattle, then on to stretches where more and more of the the roadside is lined with wineries. So many rises in the land are covered in vines….
Here we are….about 20 minutes from home …at a small town called Healesville.
Located just under an hour from Melbourne and right in the centre of the Yarra Valley food and wine district, Healesville is also home to some of the region’s most talented artists. Visit some of the town’s galleries and studios, or partake in a leisurely lunch at one of the al fresco cafes and popular pubs.
We weren’t here to eat or drink today – there was an exhibition on that I wanted to see at The Memo. A free one at that 😊
It was an exhibition by the cartoonist ( satirist, social/political commentator) Michael Leunig Born and raised in Melbourne – usually just known as Leunig – declared ( believe it or not) a national treasure in 1999!
The exhibits…..many more than I photographed…..were named…(on a flyer which I’ve misplaced) …..which made sense when looking at some trying to work out ‘the meaning of it all’…..all bar one for sale…..pricey…..yet I did see a few red stickers.
Click on the small gallery to see the weird and wonderful world of Leunig.
