Step Back In Time


Our visit to Sovereign Hill in Ballarat on the weekend. I hadn't been here since I was a girl, it was better than I remembered.

Please excuse the quality of the photo's due to the fact it was rather dark in the shops and I found without a flash the images were blurred, also not long into our adventure the camera battery died, so I missed out on some wonderful shots inside cottages, panning for gold and going into the mine. AHH!!! Don't you just hate that.

Inside we ate some yummy meat pies cooked in an old bakers oven  



The blacksmiths shed




















We were like kids in a candy store.
