These delightful sunny winters days are the best. It’s the perfect reason to get out and about and make it extra special by exploring somewhere new that you’ve never been before. On Saturday we decided to take Garth’s mum, who was visiting, for a drive. It was far too beautiful weather to stay inside. We decided to go to Denman for breakfast at Tartuka, a cafe that serves yummy coffee and Italian food. Then we wandered up the street to visit the local markets and peruse the many craft and food stalls. Hollydene has been on our ‘must visit list’ for quite some time. Seeing as though we were enjoying the day and soaking up the sunshine we decided it was the perfect occasion to visit and try it out. It had such a great atmosphere filled with lots of happy chatter from other diners who were out enjoying their leisurely Saturday afternoon like ourselves. Looking out over the vineyards as we enjoyed our delicious meals I couldn’t help but notice the cute chairs scatted around the manicured lawns just begging to be sat on while enjoying a coffee, I think we might need to plan another visit soon and make that happen. I am so grateful for the wonderful area that we live. It continues to amaze me the beautiful places that surrounds us.
On the weekend we explored a part of the country we had never been before. We started the weekend by attending the ANZAC Day Dawn Service before hitting the road to get to our destination. We stayed at the Knorrit Flat Riverside Retreat, a beautiful place to camp on luscious green grass alongside a flowing river, tubes are available and get a lift upstream and float back down to the campsite (although there were plenty of swimmers this weekend it was a bit too chilly to get me in the water!). There was plenty of 4wding to be done, with lots of fallen trees to remove off the track, plus plenty of time to relax and connect with the friends we were with.
At 35 weeks pregnant it most likely was the final camping trip as just the two of us! I am looking forward to the new adventures we will have as a family of three.
