You've been all over and it's been all over you
Day 2 of our holiday began with a trip to the Sunny Ridge strawberry farm in Rosebud. We got to pick our own strawberries and take them home. Of course we also ate some whilst picking! I wore my red maxi dress - perfectly matching the strawberries!
After picking 4 containers of strawberries, my family and I ate at the the farm cafe under some beautiful grape vines. Mum and I chatted to a nice lady who kindly let us share her table as the place was busy. We loved the strawberry ice-cream sundae - delicious!
On the way back to the motel, we stopped off at a
winery. Gosh everything is stunning in Rosebud and it's remarkable how the beach, wineries and the countryside are all in one place. After lunch, we revisited the beach across the road from the motel. We relaxed in the water and I loved floating on my back, it was a moment of peacefulness and gratitude. Needless to say I always hate having to leave the beach and practically had to be dragged away. We ended the day with a picnic in bed - always fun!
The next day, our last day of our holidays, was Easter Sunday. We went to Johnny Ripe - a lovely farm and cafe. Mum and I shared a smashed avocado toast with cherry tomatoes, cheese and poached eggs - never disappointing! After eating, my family and I strolled around the farm, marvelling at the beautiful lavendar fields. It was glorious in the sunshine.
Mum and I loved this artwork and quote.
Later, we caught a ferry that traveled from Sorrento to Queenscliff. We drove our car onto the large boat and then raced up to find a spot out on the front deck. It was so beautiful seeing the sun glistening against the blue sea and we even spotted a few seals. The 40 minute ferry ride flew by and before we knew it, we were in Queenscliff browsing some op-shops and antique stores before having a dinner of tasty lamb souvlakis at a fish and chip shop.
After cramming so much into our short holiday, we needed a holiday after our holiday! No rest for the wicked! It sure was lovely while it lasted.
