4 days away from the computer – our little vacation.
How did we spend our 4 days away? Our destination unbeknown to me was Warrnambool.
Just under a 4 hour drive from where we live. Mr. S bless his cotton socks had arranged this vacation. Instead of booking straight into the Motel, we drove towards the beach for me to smile very widely (after waking up from my sleep that is) and gasped at the sign – Horseriding – down the beach. Now Mr. S has only ridden once before and knows how much I love riding and hadn’t been for a while…so *hugs & kudos* to my man for arranging this added surprise for me.
We visited a replication of an old town that existed in the 1800’s. This area was also where the ship the Loch Ard sadly ended it’s voyage from England in 1878 http://home.vicnet.net.au/~prace/beach/locha.htm
We stopped to admire the views
and as Mr. S was kind enough to go horse riding with me I did the following –
and what did I buy on the way home for winter comfort? None other than the iconic Australian Ugg slipper.
Love love this!! Got yourself a good man! Great pics. Glad you shared and happy to hear if your fantastic trip
Aww thank you my sweet – yes I do 😉 I’m a lucky lady indeed. Thank you and now of course I need to hear of your little trip too 😉 xx
Good to know that you had a great trip! Thanks for sharing it!
Thank you Lyn – yes wound down – which was needed.:-) x
Hello lovely, welcome back. Wonderful photos. Looks like it was blissful and relaxing. Thank you Mr S for making our mumsy so happy. Love the pic of the two of you on the horses.
Hello sweet thing, it was relaxing and required. I passed on your comment & he chuckled. Yes I wish the horse ride was a little more ‘involved’ most of the time we walked and had 2 x 30 second canters. I wanted so much more, especially along the beach 🙂 Good to be back xx
Wow!! Thanks for sharing your little adventure! I love the picture of you on the horse! Also, I was absolutely mortified and laughing at the “Teacher’s Rules of 1872”!!! Can you believe that stuff?!! The men can take one day off for courting but the women can’t even think about getting engaged. Also telling them what to do with their money and how to whittle their pencils…it’s hysterical and crazy all in one!!
Aww thanks Mel. Loved the horse riding 🙂 Weren’t the rules hysterical! I HAD to take the photo…oh how glad we are that times have changed! Thanks hun 🙂 xx
This is absolutely lovely! What a great break. Little surprises are always the best. I love the slippers and as you say kudos to Mr. S. Smart man. 🙂
Thank you Nelson. Yes, it was very much needed and surprises are the best, whether it’s a weekend or a longer trip, it makes us all appreciate who we have in our lives. Slippers are DEVINE wearing them now as it is freezing! Mr. S…hmmm yes a smart man 😉 Thank you so much for reading.
Oh I golfed once. Why do they put ponds and such in the way? I mean I am attracted to water…. so is that tiny white ball…
I got a high score though woo hoo. 🙂
Hi darling. Bunkers, water and missing balls are a sure fire way of ruining a game lol
Ermm honey the lower the score is the better though, but that’s between you and me 😉 xxx
