A Walk in Curtain Square

A short walk in Curtain Square after an early dinner. Had to shed off those extra kilos from the Italian dinner we just had.

Curtain Square is situated in the Rathdowne Street shopping precinct in Carlton North. And because Becky became curious as to why the square was named that…it was named in honour of John Curtain, a Melbourne City Councillor and Member of Parliament.

It has a playground , some public art, and a selection of plants and flowers with benches which is an ideal place to relax.

      I was glad to share these with you. Have a great weekend too Marsha!
      So I see that you are stopping PPAC, is that just for a few weeks or are you completely leaving it?

        Hi Teresa, I am handing it over to Natalie the Explorer to take it over. I will concentrate on hosting Wednesday Quotes, and will add my PPAC post to her Coffee Share each week. I have enough photos to last a lifetime! I love the challenge, but we have a lot on our plate, so this will take some of the pressure off. I still plan to visit those who connect with Natalie each week, but my own posts will be shorter and may come out on Saturday or Sunday – depending on my life schedule. 🙂 We won’t lose touch, I’m sure! I look forward to views of Melbourne each week and other places you take me. 🙂

          That would be a lot better for you. Posting a blog should be fun and not stressful so do what makes you happy.

          I haven’t posted regularly as well as I have been busy with life haha Ok Marsha see you sometime!

            Thanks, Teresa! I love to post and host, but you are right about life! I think my husband is more stressed than I am, so when I am free to do what he needs, I think it might help him not to be so stressed. Schedules don’t agree with him! LOL

                It’s probably pretty common. He thinks of my blog as my job because I’m pretty schedule conscious.
