Australia Day Weekend

This long weekend is signal to the end of the School holidays, but a welcome break after just a short time at work. I traveled down to Aireys Inlet on Friday night with Wendy leaving at 5.45. We came across the new Ballarat Hamilton road before Geelong and had a quick trip along that; pleased to have company as neither of us knew where to exit!! We passed a few choices then chose the West Geelong / Ballarat one and this turned out to be a good choice taking us to Belmont and 5 minutes from the Anglesea road at Waurn Ponds. I have to check a map on line to see if there is another choice. But the trip took 75 minutes rather than 90...so really great.
The house looked as welcoming as ever and very smart with the 'new' leather lounge suite. The older ones are still in the carport so I need to organise to get them donated.
We did our usual cliff walk with Sponty on lead and Spencer roaming. We went around the rocks to the side beach and Sponty had a run in that enclosed area.
Sunday we went up the the Food and Craft Market at the Community Centre and bought some fresh produce and cup cakes for dinner! There are a lot of small specialty food businesses in the area. I took the time to thank the photographer whose picture of Wilson's Prom I gave to Andrew for Christmas.
