Front door with "porte cochere" Drive in off Macquarie Street

Reason a couple of us were spooked out is that it looks so uncannily similar to the 'front' entrance of Kelvingrove Museum, Oz.

Somebody might have to go take a pic this weekend, I'd say half way up the path from Kelvin Way towards our own 'porte cochere' would just about do it :rolleyes: Weird weird weird though, so it is.

Pleased to see some more photos of my favourite fluffy cows a few posts back.... :rolleyes:

We have had a major 'rain event' as they are calling it here in Victoria today. The creek that runs through the middle of our town has flooded and we took a few photos earlier. I have never seen it flood like this - amazing. Coming off a month of high rainfall the ground can't absorb any more and the runoff is torrential. I don't think I've ever seen so much rain in my life, actually.

Must be the day for interesting natural occurences in the southern hemisphere today - earthquake in Christchurch NZ as well.

Main bridge in town - water level is about 2m higher than usual - there is a path running under the bridge:

Creek normally flows about 20m further back from the road:
