A Winter's Tale


A long winter weekend in Warrnambool & Port Fairy

It was perfect winter weather with the sky clear and blue.
The days reached a height of 13 degrees and one night it was a low of zero and we were camping in a tent. Crazy yes, but still fun.
We had a little heater to warm us while dressing but once in our sleeping bags we were pretty snug.
We awoke one morning to find that a wet face washer that we had left outside was stiff as a board, frozen solid and there was even ice in our dogs water bowl. She was snuggled up under a blanket in the tent with us, so that she didn't end up a pupsicle.  Ha ha! 










 The main reason we went was to attend Fun 4 Kids. A week long event of entertainment and workshops in an indoor venue that is spread out over two hectares. Streets are blocked off with massive marques all interconnected together. We were there for only one day and tried to do and see most things, but we couldn't do it all and there's something new every day.

We watched jugglers, musicians and acrobats.
We cuddled baby animals.
We banged and hammered nails into wood and created tables and chairs for dolls and made a fairy house.
We made spiced biscuits in a cooking class, then enjoyed eating them.
We decorated biscuits with icing, they didn't last long at all.
We fenced.
We climbed.
We were pampered and had our nails painted.
We played mini golf.
We made chef hats.
We had a full day of fun and walked home very tired.






It was nice to get away but I have to say I will enjoy curling up in my warm comfy bed tonight.

I did pop into a few op shops along the way ( HOW COULD I NOT) and found some pieces that I'll show in my next post.
