Weekend away

 Hubby and I went away for the weekend - First stop on Friday morning was at the Margaret River Choc Factory in Swan Valley for morning tea (and to replenish stock! LOL) then out to Northam where we had lunch at a lovely Greek Cafe Yassou.... then down to York where we were booked into the Grandhouse B&B for 2 nights in the "Spa" suite! Arrived in tome for a lovely homemade arvo tea- yummy choc muffins in the first pic! and later in the evening - a complimentary Sherry or Port and we were given a complimentary bottle of white wine too! :D 
Saturday was a beautiful sunny late Winter's day (Spring starts here in Australia on September 1st) so we drove down to Beverley - not much to see there -but we went in the Tourist Bureau and were asked if we were "up for the show" ..."what show?" we said was their Annual Agricultural show- we spent several hours watching the horses and riders being judged and the cattle too and just generally snoofying around - in the big shed was crafts and Art on display and i purchased home made Lemon butter - mm mmm! Scoffed a big stuffed jacket potato for lunch - drove back to York and had a glass of wine at the pub there (only one left - others have all closed down) which was a bit pricey! but it turned out to be a great day! On Sunday we stopped off at Mundaring Weir and communed with nature - well 5 Kangaroos that were grazing there! Didn't do anything crafty - just read my book in the "down time".
But I am now back in the studio each day frantically getting ready for the Sydney Australian Lace Guild AGM for which I leave in 4 weeks and 5 days! eeeek!
