Holiday Snaps

Our trip away last week was so very welcome, but at the same time… well, you know. Holidays with young children are never really completely restful, are they? But with a view like this from our accommodation in Port Fairy:

And fun like this to be had:

…I can’t really complain, now can I?

We headed down to Port Fairy, on the coast of western Victoria, for three nights, and then headed north to Halls Gap in the Grampians mountain ranges for another three. The weather was a little volatile, but we did manage to get out and explore a bit, spend time on the beach (albeit rugged up), walk a couple of short easy bushwalks, and cook a few marshmallows on a campfire. We also sought out cheese, chocolate, fabric and devonshire teas – all pretty standard requirements for our family holidays 🙂 In the rainy bits, we very happily lazed about inside – there might have even been a bit of crochet and (shock!) a bit of cross-stitch.

Sigh. So nice. Wish we could do it all over again next week.

PS. Pssst, Mum, more photos over here!

Blogtoberfest Day 2 – squeaking in just under the wire, at 11.32pm! And apologies to anyone who read the pre-edit version. At this time of night, my brain it does not.

  1. Great photos, Mel!! It looks like you had a wonderful time!

  2. Two of my favourite places.

    Love all the pics.

  3. Port Fairy is a gorgeous spot, was there many, many moons ago. Looks like you had a great time.

  4. Beautiful shots. Last time I went to Port Fairy it was for the festival and I was working with the band. Which was enormous fun, but meant I didn’t really see much of the area. Always meant to head back there.

  5. Oh that looks like you had so much fun. I’m envious.

  6. Lovely holiday photos. Funny, we were in the Grampians too, although on the other side. 😉
