an evening at Eureka Skydeck

It seems only fitting to share this rather overdue post the same day as I head back to the city.

The Mr and I back in the metropolis of Melbourne for one night only ~ sans children.

This post, though, harks back to another time with smalls when we took in an evening at Eureka Skydeck.

The thing I love about Skydeck is how it is possible to spend endless time on the floor of one building ~ there is so much to look at, see, watch, do.

We had been before in the daytime and when work took us back to the city, we decided this time to head there for sunset and to check out the city lights.

I do love a lit up skyline ~ there is something very dramatic about the strings of lights, marking out roads and shining on ovals and parks.

Walking up to Skydeck is an experience in itself ~ I love those gold bees. The art installation is called Queen Bee by Richard Stringer.

This time we also took in the Edge Experience ~ the glass box that slides out from the tower to give you an uninterrupted view … down.

This was quite spectacular at night ~ and not nearly as nerve-wracking as I thought [although it wasn’t until right before that I realised I slid it ~ yeah, I don’t know what I thought either.]

We had our photo taken but in the interests of protecting the tough guy reputation of the small who joined us [one opted out from the start] ~ who was full of bravado until he was out there ~ I won’t share those images here. Although I do have them for posterity.

Naturally we took photos, lots of photos, which I included in a short video here. The beauty of my poor planning [cue reflective glass] means you get to see inside and out of what happens at Skydeck at dusk.

I was gifted tickets to Skydeck and the Edge experience.

share your milestones ~ my first linky

So today is a milestone. And as part of the birthday party, I want you to share your milestones.

It could be anything ~ your own bloggy birthday, the birth of a child, a revelation, starting your own blog. Anything at all.

If you posted about it, leave a link so we can celebrate your milestone, too. Or just leave a comment. There’s no statue of limitations, any milestone at all, any timeframe.

For me, there was my 100th comment, 100 sales in my Etsy shop and my 1000th post, and then there was the time I smashed a lens and almost broke my camera, or buying my first Polaroid camera.

OK, and let’s not discount marrying my wonderful Hubby and the birth of our two children.

That’s what’s amazing about the past two years.
