Family Day - Sunny Hill Strawberry Farm

The weather was far from conducive to going out .  The rain was miserable but it was 'Family Day' and they wanted to make the most of it despite the weather.

I normally love driving on Eastlink but yesterday it was horrible and I welcomed the approach of the tunnels if just to get out of the rain for a few minutes. But enough about the weather.  By the time we got to the Mornington Peninsula the rain had cleared and I wondered if there had been anything but a slight drizzle here.

This time we were heading to the SUNNY RIDGE STRAWBERRY FARM and with a treat like this at the end of the trip - who wouldn't want to brave the elements!

This Parfait is what we came for....
Marinated freshly picked Strawberries
topped with a scoop of Home made Strawberry Icecream
with a companion scoop of Strawberry Sorbet

Then there were the
Belgium waffles 
with Poached raspberries, 
Fresh local cream 
and Dark chocolate dip.

And ....
Hot pancakes
Maple Syrup
Beautiful Vanilla Ice-cream
(made with local ingredients)

And if that wasn't enough..... One of their Giant Chocolate covered Strawberries.

Yes, that is a 'normal' berry on the teaspoon and a 5c piece for scale!

  1. The only problem I have now is.....

What do I do with THESE?????

PS:  There were FIVE of us and we shared!

Family Day - TORQUAY

- it is the one day a month that is just for us!
I noticed at the start of this year the wall planner getting crammed with Appointments, Dates, Gigs, Outings, not to mention the day to day stuff of 3 at Uni - so it was decided that before the new month starts to fill up that ONE DAY would be blocked in as Family Day.

Missed the turn off and ended up somewhere else!  Isn't that the fun of just pointing the car in one direction and seeing what is at the other end of it? The plan was to go to Point Lonsdale via Geelong.

What actually happened was....
Geelong Bypass

Where none but the brave ventured in..

(Oh well ... what's a 40km detour when you have no-where to go and all day to get there?)
The wind was perfect for kite-surfers.

We eventually arrived at our original destination Point Lonsdale via some fantastic Hot Chips at Barwon Heads.

The land in the distance is Point Nepean, the water on the horizon is "The Rip", this is where Port Phillip Bay opens into Bass Straight.

And as usual....  the sun sets on a great day out.

Time Out

Ahhh... Just sometimes we need to spoil ourselves.
Good Coffee, a macaroon (oooh sorry) Delice and a free Chocolate.
What more could a Girl want?

Morning tea at Lindt

Oh, that's right - Good Company.
Thanks for joining me.
