Weekend Retreat

I have just returned from my annual weekend retreat with my cousins - there are eight of us and we have just enjoyed our 11th weekend away. We have a wonderful weekend of eating, drinking and being merry!! This year we travelled to the wonderful wine growing area of Western Australia. We usually fit in lots of shopping and this year was no exception. There are some wonderful kitchen shops which caught our attention as most of us are fond of cooking (and eating!!) and I took these photos of the gorgeous china which was in the most amazing colours.
















































We also visited some wineries and wandered along the back roads. It is a real tourist area so there was much to look at. We had dinner at the Aravina Winery which was really lovely (I have photos to share later) and just relaxed and enjoyed the company and the weather. I came home last night and was very tired today. Back to work tomorrow and Wednesday then my final photography lesson on Wednesday night. Life is a little hectic at the moment.....
