Settling In

Happily I can report that jet-lag was barely discernible, but it may be due to the fact that I have been placed with an absolutely wonderful family who have made sure that I have all the comforts of home … including some delightful pets!

As it is winter here, most of the days have included rain, but Saturday morning was glorious, so I had a chance to take a nice long walk ’round the neighbourhood.  Although I was told that I could catch a glimpse of Melbourne from the local park, they did not say it would be spectacular, as you can see from the picture here.

Today we will go to a local art store and the Vic Market, and then on to the University to set up the classroom for Copperplate 101, as Summer School in Winter starts tomorrow!
