A winter holiday

A few weeks ago it was school holidays. We went away with some friends for a holiday to Daylesford, in the spa country in Victoria.  

Our accommodation was lovely, situated right on the lake, with beautiful veiws from our lounge room and interesting (if sometimes noisy) neighbours lol.  Being winter it was very cold, but we still managed to get out and see lots of things in the area. 

In particular we enjoyed visiting sovereign hill, and took advantage of the 2 day entry. We spent most of a day enjoying the town and pretending we were living in the late 1800’s (but mighty glad there was good coffee available). We saw a pantomime show, went to school, saw lots of exciting reenactments and successfully panned for gold. By then we were cold and tired so headed home. The next evening we returned for the christmas in July light show. It was fabulous! 

This is a picture showing the light decoration on the houses. There was also a  projected light show  on the buildings which is not done justice by my photos.

Being Christmas in July, the town was also decorated with trees and there was regular “snow flurries” through the town. The trees were adorned with crochet snowflakes, and I managed to find one tatted one too 😊

Aside from this trip we enjoyed walks, shopping and cafes, visiting the market and lots of food and fun. As always, we all wanted to stay longer. Makes us look forward to our next holiday! 

Until next time, happy tatting

  1. Christmas in July at Sovereign Hill is one of the highlights of the year! We’ve been multiple times and never get tired of it… one of our favourite day trips from Melbourne… I do like the idea of staying over and splitting it up tho!

    • Yes, I agree, it was great to have the option. As we came across from Daylesford it wasn’t too far to go back. Thanks for your comment- I was blown away by how great the light show was too… definite highlight.

  2. Lovely snowflake! 😉
