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!
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
