My last memory of visiting there is sometime around 1985. However, I do have a vague recollection that my old flatmate, Gil, and I may have gone there at some stage. I'll check with her when we catch up early in the new year.
Anyway, it was a most enjoyable experience! Particularly memorable was this Brett Whitely mural entitled "Alchemy".
After the gallery, we took a stroll around the Royal Botanic Gardens, which was very nice. I wish we'd seen more flowers, in addition to the various trees and shrubs, but we only made a short visit, which leaves the opportunity open for a longer ramble sometime soon.
One thing that did amaze me was the huge number of bats hanging from a grove of trees near the cafe where we had lunch. I just didn't realise bats were happy to hang around in the sunlight; I'd assumed they always found some dark grotto to sleep in during the day. Some of them were even flying around!
Before we parted company, Paul, Jeanie and I made a tentative date to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, which is somewhere I know I've never been. I'm definitely looking forward to that!
