Talking St Kilda Blues

I have tried, not always successfully to link the names of my posts with music references. Mainly because I am travelling with a man who reads album covers for a hobby. And as vinyl is now apparently fashionable in a retro kind of way, even you young people should know what I’m talking about.

Anyway I managed to find songs about St Kilda which was a bit of a surprise. This was not the only one. The next one I’m saving for another post, when we get to Sydney. You will see why when I post!

We went to St Kilda today, and one of our first ports of call was a music shop that has a bar! Enough said.

Pure Pop

That was after ogling at the cake shops.

Then there were shoe shops. Lots of lovely shops everywhere.

And a barber, that also provides a beer while you have your locks trimmed.

Even the fishmonger has flair.

I loved St Kilda, it has a fabulous community garden, a theme park, a beach a pier and a cafe Lentils As Everything where there are no prices, you pay what you think it’s worth or what you can afford. I’m not sure how it sustains itself on this business model. But as I’ve just volunteered there, I may find out.
