There were alot of very excited children showing off their BEAUTIFUL Easter Bonnets. It was so nice that they did them at school, this year ,and we didn’t have to create something on the spare of the moment at home. They all did a wonderful job! Now they are just waiting to fill their little baskets with choccy eggs!
We thought that we would pack a picnic and head off for the day. Some friends of ours joined us. First stop was to Pfieffers Winery. This is one of my favourite wineries, it overlooks Sunday Creek, and in the summer , 100s of turtles come out to play and love some old bread crumbs.Rhys ,Ella and Jack walked down the embankment and across a plank onto the pylon for a closer look.
Second stop was to some Aboriginal caves, we didn’t realise that it was an 1hr round trip ,walk. So we will put that back on the to do list.We all ,only had thongs(flip flops) on so that wasn’t really going to cut it, as a walking shoe. Next stop was Woolshed Falls. We wanted to take the kids and swim in the water holes and rock pools, there wasn’t alot of water running as we have had a lack of rain, but still quite scenic.
We then went into Beechworth and had to stop of at the infamous, Beechworth Bakery mmmm ..they have the BEST beestings ever made! Then wandered around the shops and then found a little boutique Brewery, which we had some nice little tastings. All together a lovely day out.
OMG! My eldest baby is going to High School! Makes me feel soooo old. He is so excited and can’t wait to get there. I just can’t believe that it’s the start ,of a whole new phase in our life…FREAKING ME OUT! I wasn’t allowed to take him to school.A friend from up the road, walked together. I am proud ,not a tear did I shed, but very close.
We had a lovely evening with our friends on their new house boat, pontoony, party bargy thingy! Not sure what the official name of it is , but it’s very comfortable. Luckily we live very near to the river ,so we just met them at the closest spot to us on the river , and they pulled in and collected us, few drinkies and no car to drive home……
We pulled up a couple of times ,one for a swim and the kids had fun trying to swing off this rope, and then we stopped for a BBQ tea.
we came across some very scarey pirates
the breeze cooled slightly on the way home, very nice thanks Floss and Brett.
