Our Trip to Victoria!!
We had a wonderful time at Sovereign Hill. Paige totally believed she could find gold! Boy she worked that pan! So many things to do - Hannah had her photo taken in costume - as a Victorian young lady. We all enjoyed a horse drawn coach ride. Bowling was a big hit as was the train ride after the mine tour. So much fun especially the lolly shop! We stayed the night in Ballarat and travelled to Daylesford the next morning to the Maze. We got lost, we found all the clues and finally conquered the maze. Here's Hannah disappearing round one of the hundreds of turns! The girls enjoyed Mini golf with their dad while I watched eating devonshire tea! It was a wonderful afternoon, playing giant noughts and crosses as well. We drove all the way to Mornington and stayed in a beautiful hotel. The next day we drove to Portsea, stopped at Rye jetty on the way back as well as a scrapbooking shop in Mornington - clearly the biggest shop I've ever walked into! That was my treat! Then it was off to the zoo!! The girls had a ball! It was a beautiful day - 23C !! Then onto the Regent Theatre in Melbourne that night to see the Musical 'Wicked'. It is clearly the best production I've ever seen. (And I've seen quite a few in my lifetime!!!) Both Hannah and Paige sat rivoted to their seat with mouths gaping through most of it! Then we flew home today. I must admit - its great to be home. (big smile)
