This is the view from where we stayed last Saturday and Sunday nights. Talk about stunning (and not bad for an iphone pic!). We stayed in a little cottage called Hut on the Hill. It is located in Heathcote, about 30mins from Bendigo in country Victoria. The 'hut' sits in the middle of a sheep paddock on the top of a hill with 360 degree views of the landscape. Kangaroos and sheep can be seen in the immediate and nearby area. There was PLENTY of wind on Saturday. When we came home from dinner it was challenging to get back into the house because of it- and Tobes had to move the car so that it wasn't parked underneath a gum tree! The skies were so clear though and the starts were stunning. If only it were warmer I would have happily watched them for hours.
We spent our time relaxing at the hut- reading, napping, sitting in front of the telle and the fire. We ventured out for delicious meals at Domaine Asmara and Flynns, and a yummy afternoon tea at Cellar and Store.
Toby took the opportunity to make the most of me as a designated driver to taste some wines. All were fantastic, so our wine fridge is now 7 bottles richer!
On Monday we celebrated our anniversary by driving home! :) We stopped off at the pink cliffs, enjoyed a lunch of steak and onion pie and we shared a snot block (that's a vanilla slice- delicious) in a park in Castlemaine, then hit the road for Melbourne.
Such a relaxing weekend and a lovely way to start our third year of marriage.
Pics of us (and my growing tummy) tomorrow!
