Our holiday was completely wonderful!! We both feel as though we got everything we needed out of it.
You can't get much better than that!
I ticked everything off my list. Basically I slept, read 2 wonderful books, ate lots of yummy food, went for windswept walks, visited wineries and watched a bit of tellie. Divine.
We started with a GINORMOUS breakfast of yumminess at home.
The view from our cabin
The resident canine. He was so lovely and nearly knocked me over by banging his wagging body against my side every time I spoke to him.
This is what I saw every time I looked out the bathroom window.
I wasn't able to capture its true colour though. The leaves were more blue than green and against a charcoal grey sky the colour combination was so beautiful.
Before we left I made my almond cake but this time used spiced quinces.
I've never cooked quinces before and was enthralled by the magical way it changes colour and filled the house with the most delectable fragrance for hours and hours.
...Walks we took..
We went to the Willunga Farmers Market to get food for the week.
It was wet and windy.
But still very lovely and we were able to snatch up some organic goodies and these tangy-sweet smelling sweet peas. As the flower man was packing up I scored them for $4 and they're still alive and gracing my bed side table right now. So so lovely.
I finally got to eat my Croissant :) with REAL butter *sigh*
and St. Dalfour Strawberry jam which is my current obsession.
On our day out visiting wineries I wore this blue top which I bought for $1 at an op shop (I believe it is actually a pajama top but I keep telling myself that this doesn't matter), my fave vintage scarf, secured with my Emgee Umbrella Brooch, Grey high-waisted pants from op shop and a little boys clip on bow tie which I scored for 50c at the oppie around the corner. These photos were taken during a sporadic sunny spot and I had to layer up as soon as the photo's were finished!
Zen in his element.
We did a little coffee crawl at Willunga on our last day starting at this little french style place which was so quiet and calming and in honour of you Bell, ended it at the Green Room..
... with a chai latte and this delectable yoghurt cheesecake.
I'm glad I got to share all this with you today as it is my first day back to work and reality. However, putting this post together has allowed the holiday to linger a little longer in my psyche and has put a smile back on my face :) Love E xo
