.... was spent in Victoria. Two days with my sister and her family followed by nearly five days at a very comfortable resort on the Mornington Peninsula, close to Port Philip Bay.
The concert by the Victoria Welsh Choir on the Saturday night was wonderful and it was good to meet up with a number of friends again.
The weather during the week ranged from wild winds, heavy rain, bitter cold to fine, sunny and reasonably warm. But the cold and the wet didn't spoil our holiday as the resort was very cosy and comfortable, and a good opportunity for reading, knitting and watching far too much TV.
On the Friday morning we boarded the Sorrento - Queenscliff ferry to cross Port Philip Bay. It's a 50 minute trip that I always enjoy, at least if it's smooth, which it was. We stayed the night with my sister in Geelong and helped her celebrate her 60th Birthday next day with most of the family.
We arrived back in Canberra on Sunday afternoon to eagerly await the arrival of Tanya, Geoff and Arlo the next day. We had a few delightful days with them and we looked forward to seeing them again in Brisbane next weekend where we'll have a reunion of the whole family (children and grandchildren) - the first time we will have all been together for 18 months, during which time two more babies were added to the family.
This will also be the first trip in our new car - we should know how to handle it by the time we return home in about 10 days time ...... lol.
Wind whipped waves along the Bay.
