An adventure day to end all adventures......well almost!




Gosh! What a day we had yesterday.....none of us wanted it to end. We left home at 10am and got home just before 8pm! Firstly we set off for Point Leo - a surf beach about a 40 minute drive away.....I thought the children might enjoy the waves - I was right! We introduced Hugh to boogie boarding! You could not wipe the smile off his face....well worth the trip for that alone. We also went there as it has great rock pools. We found a gorgeously warm one that Katie delighted in. We then headed off and followed our noses. We arrived at a strawberry farm, but at $24 for all of us to pick strawberries, gave it a miss. Next it was off to Arthur's Seat as I was hoping the chairlift might be operational - alas! No! Still the views were superb as was my glass of chardy. Finally it was back to Mornington where we enjoyed a play at the park and some wonderful Chinese food for dinner. We bought a tub of ice cream on the way home and sat around the lounge room exclaiming about the wonders of our day. Days don't get much better than this. I took over 150 photos.....if you would like to see some more - not all! - just some, please click here!
