A scheduled unscheduled day


Annie: Today was totally random. We just walked around and did stuff, spur of the moment. We went to the aquarium.
and then we went into the imagration museum and i tried on a kimono.
after we got back from Aunties wash, blow dry and mani, we got ready to see guys and dolls, and i think that it was pretty awesome.

Word of the Day: we are running out of words so i will have to get back to you on that


At long last, a day that only had one scheduled activity and that was the London West End production of Guys and Dolls at the Princess Theatre. The Princess Theater has been in continual operation since 1857 and is listed by the National Trust of Australia and is on the Victorian Heritage Register.

But since the show was not until evening we had one entire day stretching before us to do with as we wanted. Over a full on buffet spread brekkie we decided to take in the Aquarium in order to see some of the aquatic wildlife we missed seeing during our abbreviated snorkeling adventure at the Great Barrier Reef. We also had John, the superb Westin concerige book up some beauty treatments for both of us; Annie's secret treatment at 2pm and Aunties much needed hair wash at 4pm. I was in serious danger of scaring the natives with my hair! Auntie had also seen that the Immigration Museum had a kimono exhibit from Melbourne's sister city, Osaka, Japan and thought Annie might have a go at dressing up in a kimono. By sheer coincidence the Immigration Museum was on the way back from the Aquarium so in we went.

Lunch was at Melbourne's best sushi train restaurant which continued the motif of fish and Asia. And then it was onto the aforementioned beauty treatments.

Before the theater we picked up our tickets and assorted prezzies that came in the ticket package and had a pre-dinner bite at Oyster's around the corner. Annie declared the chips at Oyster's to be the second best we have had in Australia and as our official chips taster she would know!!

Guys and Dolls was non-stop singing and dancing from the moment the curtain went up until the final bow by the ensemble. Lots of laughs and your basic love story kept our attention throughout the preformance. But after all the walking we had done during the day and the lateness of the night we were ready to once again call it lights out and sink into those heavenly beds.

WOTD: Prezzies = Presents or gifts
