Our trip to the Swan Valley yesterday was really good. We left after lunch, Bob drove, Josh slept most of the way.
The first place we stopped was Bells Rapids, a small river which apparently grows large enough for a famous kayaking competition to take place there. Joshua thought it was brilliant and didn’t want to leave.
However we had to, as we all needed a drink and a bite to eat. There are chocolate shops, nougat shops and cheese shops, along with wineries galore. We didn’t get to any wine sellers but had some nice sweeties and drinks.
Today we went to Penny’s party in the morning. Deanne and I chatted to Emma, Clayton, Kathy and Michelle while Josh played with Penny, Alice and Ella, oh yes and Danielle was there too, although her Mum didn’t stay. A good time was had by all and the boy seemed to be trying to eat all the food Emma had made.
After that we went to Deanne’s Great Aunt Chrissie’s party. A bit more subdued than Penny’s party, but not really surprising with an 85 year difference in birthday ages! We talked to Janice, Kody, Helen, Rick and a whole bunch of Dee’s slightly more distant relations. Julie is on holiday with some mates at the minute so she wasn’t there.
Back to the grind tomorrow. I’ve dropped a few pictures in ToF’s Dropbox, so get him to move them and get rid of them when he’s done.
Thought you’d appreciate the photo I took at one of the shops yesterday!
