Hanging out

{Image 1, 2}

Hallo all, I'm just back from 3 days in Victoria.

Mr Cornflake and I decided we needed some 'time out' so decided on a long weekend in Victoria's treasured park, Wilsons Promontory. We hired a car, cottage, drank lots of red wine and did some lovely hikes around the national park. It was so peaceful and beautiful - I'm a country girl born and bred, so it's great to be to be able to go back to nature from time to time.

We saw lots of kangaroos without trying, as well as wombats (sadly we ran one of these over in the dark driving to the cottage :-( could have been much worse though if we tried to avoid it completely), koalas and whales.

I'm back in Melbourne in two days time (for work) - I can't believe my busy life sometimes!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend too.
