St Kilda’s Pier and Albert Park are well known landmarks in Melbourne, so it was time to explore some of the suburb’s back streets on my daily hike. St Kilda’s terraced houses had gradually disappeared, but there were still majestic homes along the route I took.

I walked over Chapel Street and located some grand old houses with wrought iron balconies and lush gardens. Most had been subdivided into small apartments or converted into small business operations.

I reached Alma Park where a wall along one side of the park was covered in street art. It was late afternoon — time to turn back even though the sun would not set until close to nine. Unlike Melbourne’s weather, sunset was predictable.
