Getaway

Over the weekend we took the opportunity to get away for a couple of days. We hit the highway to go visit the in-laws, who happen to live in a particularly pretty part of Victoria. Their tiny town is close to one of the state's favourite holiday destinations, Bright.

We stopped on the way up at Milawa and stocked up on goodies from the Olive Shop....

Cruised the market in Bright and shopped for gourmet treats (at least I did; Bike Boy was out on his new MTB, pedalling up and down mountains)...



Observed the huge number of cyclists in town for the Audax Alpine Classic....



Dropped into the local lolly shop/cafe for an iced coffee. The Baby thought he was in heaven....



Spent a lovely hour or so at Boynton's winery, which has a sensational view of Mount Buffalo.





Stopped at the Bright Brewery on our way back, where I stuck to water, but Bike Boy enjoyed a few cold bevvies....

Sat on the creek bank with our feet in the icy water, while The Baby built himself a dam....



Relaxed on the lawn with a cold drink or two...



And I played around with my camera...





All up, it was a very welcome break.

I'm into my last week of holidays now and intend to make the most of it.

Looks like a top place to get away. Good to see the camera is getting a workout.

Looks like a fab time! The Olive Shop looks divine and my mouth is watering Luckily I am allowed olives on the keto diet!

It's a little piece of paradise, Deb. The camera is doing just fine, thanks.

Frankie, they have all sorts of lovely goodies at the Olive Shop (and Brown Brothers is conveniently right across the road). Also the Cheese factory and Mustard shops just around the corner. You might want to skip the bakery though...

Kitty, love - Don't be silly. I'm fricken terrified of heights.
