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.
