I had a very early start to the day yesterday and as much as I don’t like waking up at 5:30am, I do love being out alone on crisp clear mornings. I was waiting for a tram in the city at 7am and although my hands were freezing, I had to snap a pic of Collins Street:
When I was done with my appointment I had some more errands which took me to Melbourne Central, which is a shopping centre complex (and train station). I was surprised to see this community garden set up in Melbourne Central, and people were seated against the plants reading or chatting with friends:
Glad to be out in the fresh (polluted city) air, my next stop was Smith Street in Collingwood:
A closeup of the poster in the top righthand window made me laugh in a resigned, unhappy way. Meet our new prime minister:
I loaded up the Happy Cow app and found that I was around the corner from Friends Of The Earth. Sweet!
On offer were a selection of sweet treats such as donuts from Crumbs though I opted for the fine looking cake which was apple and walnut. The texture was very crumbly but that didn’t stop me, naaaatch:
I also ordered a soy chai to go with it, which was lovely:
I wish I had more time to look around Friends Of The Earth (check their website) and I’ll definitely be back:
Friends Of The Earth is located at 312 Smith Street, Collingwood. Website here.
