A Sunday stroll around town

July 4, 2015

Everything here shuts down on a Sunday – kind of like Canada in the 1950s.  It’s wonderful – the city is quite a distance from most of the tourist accommodation so the tourists aren’t strolling around and the locals know there’s nothing open so they stay away. One can almost walk down the middle of the main street and not have to worry about being run over and you can take your time gawking in the store windows looking at plastic buckets next to razor blades or anything the merchandiser can find to add to the window that might sell.

So this is a pictorial of a Sunday stroll through Victoria.

Entrance to the main market - expensive but huge amounts of fresh tuna and snapper

The yacht club is very close to downtown so returning to the club  for lunch and reading of the local papers is a good idea on Sundays

    Love the street art. In quite a fe smaller towns here in Australia, shops close at noon on Saturday. I don’t like that they are all barracking to have Sunday shopping. Come on people, organize your lives a bit better, stay out of the shops. IF the banks would be open on Sunday, that would be OK though. Gorgeous pics!!
