Our weekend away in photos...

On Friday, I hosted the first meet up for the book club that my friend and I started. There were seven ladies, lots of food and great discussion, although not much about the book! hehe:) Afterward, Steve and I decided to head to the cottage that our neighbors own on Phillip Island. It's a 2 hour drive from the city and we didn't arrive until around 3am but it was nice to wake up and already be there. Plus, it wasn't a big deal for me because I slept the whole way anyway! We spent Saturday chilling on the beach, I explored the town and Steve went cycling. Then, on Saturday evening our friends, Bruce and Claire arrived for the night.
Everyone, including Jesse had a very relaxed time!

On Saturday evening, we enjoyed a BBQ dinner, a game of Scrabble (girls against boys) and great conversation and laughs with friends while sitting by the fire. Good times!
Sunday, we played on the beach with Jesse...

...went out for breakfast...
...and explored the island. Claire and Bruce did a bus tour of the island in the past, so they knew some of the best places to see, which was great for us!
We went to a couple of look-offs...very pretty...

...and wandered down a steep hill to a beach that doesn't usually get any company.

Steve was like a kid in a candy shop and found lots of beach treasure!
The puffer fish and seahorse skeleton were pretty cool!
That's "Pyramid Rock" out there.
And that's Steve out there on that rock.

It was a really lovely weekend! We lucked out and had beautiful weather. It's always so nice to get away, even if it's only for a few days! I feel so grateful for our neighbors who are kind enough to let us use their adorable cottage. They really are the nicest people!

You look a bit cold. Still I cannot crow much as you will know exactly what temp we have here in Ireland.

Lovely shots of the Bass Strait.

I went to the seaside this weekend as well. I will post pictures soon. I don't know how I got sidetracked by Halloween costumes.

It looks like you had a lovely time. We never got around to scrabble, but meant to.
