Melbourne - Monday May 19, 2014

Today was busy.  We first went to Williamstown, as town on Phillip Bay, opposite Melbourne, so that we could view the Melbourne skyline. It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm. Of course we needed a cup of tea along the way.  We then went to the Shrine of Remembrance, for those lost in WWI. It is a beautiful big shrine in the middle of Melbourne.  We watched a film and also stayed for a little service.  Since the café in the Botanical Gardens was closed on Mondays we found another restaurant on Rose Street.  Later in the afternoon we visited an impressive Catholic school which was located in a lower social-economic area. It was not one of the elite private schools.  They have a large number of Iraq students, who families were Catholic, in a Muslim world, and they needed to flee, so they fled to Australia.   l before returning to the house to change clothes for an evening Rotary meeting.
