Today we woke up a bit later, at around 10 AM, because we didnt go to sleep until 12 AM last night. When I got up, I had a shower and ate breakfast. I went on my computer to upload some photo's. We decided to got to the Royal Botanical Garden's before going to out Colonial Tramcar Dinner at 5:30.
We went out at about 12 PM to catch the free Melbourn tourism bus. It was about a 5 minute walk to the bus stop, and the bus ride was another 5 minutes. When we got to the Botanical Gardens, we went to the Shrine of Remembrance, a big beatiful building dedicated to all the fallen Autralian Soldiers. In the shrine, there were journal quotes from soldiers in the world wars, a gift shop, a balcony overlooking the Botanical Gardens, artifacts from the world wars and many more things. We climbed the stairs to the top balcony to see the view, it was very nice. When we left the shrine, we started walking the Tan Circle, a 6+ Kilometer patch going around the 100 acre gardens. Inside the Botanicle Gardens, we went down into the gorge. It was very nice, with steps carved into the rocks from hundreds of years ago, and a bridge going over a little creek. We went back up then kept walking. We walked through many paths, seeing amazing trees, some hundreds of years old, and many plants. We walked along a small river, watching swans and ducks dive into the water for food. We were at the gardens for about 4 hours. When we left, we decided to walk back to the hotel so we didnt have to wait for a bus. It was about a 25 minute walk, and we stopped for an ice cream at McDonalds. When we got back, we went up to our hotel room and got ready to go to our Tramcar Dinner. We walked to the Tram station, and waited about 10 minutes for our dinner tram. The tram is a very old tram car, turned into a restaurant. Its very nice. When we got in, we sat down and the tram srated moving. As an appetizer we had a red pepper dip and a chicken liver pate, which I didnt try.  To drink, I had a lemon squash, a popular drink down here. Its basically a light carbonated lemonade. For my main course, I had a Chicken Parmesan on a bed of rice and tomato sauce. It was delicious, so was the roast beef my dad had. For dessert, we had a delicious white chocolate and passionfruit parfait drizzled with a raspberry syrup. It was amazingly tasty. Shortly after that, our ride came to an end, and we left the tram car back at the station. We walked back to our hotel, and now I'm writing. Thanks for reading.
