Melbourne Gold Cup

This time last year we were in Melbourne on a recce with a view to a massive move out here.

It was the day of the Gold Cup and the streets and railway stations were thronging with a rainbow of floaty dresses and fascinators. There was such a buzz.

"If we make the move babe, that will be us next year" he said.

I remember thinking back then that it seemed an age away, a whole life removed from all I knew and I recall not really being able to get my head around it.

It was us.

Tuesday 6th November 2012.

We got suited and booted and joined the madding crowds.

An air-conditioned marquee.

Champagne flowing.

Delectable platters to graze on.

A fantastic atmosphere to uplift and excite.

Feeling feminine in a dress for a change!

Great people watching.

Thrilling racing......

....and some royalty to boot.

All in all a beautiful day.



Fashion Filly winners!
