Only in Geelong

On the first day of June we drove to Geelong in the late afternoon, arriving in Clare Street after dark. After a quick check in to the apartment, we walked to Lingy's Edge bar on the waterfront.

We had front row seats for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performance of Mozart's Jupiter symphony and Holst's The Planets.
