Happy Hour - Snapshots

A roadtrip in regional Victoria (and just over the border).

Earlier this week we went on a little road-trip visiting Port Fairy, Penola and Dunkeld with a few little stops at local wineries along the way.

Over the past few weeks I've been watching my workload slowly grow, with the lead up to Christmas. I've recently been approached by a couple of magazines about my Harvest Haversacks possibly being featured, which is so exciting! I am also going to be at a few upcoming design markets selling my bags direct to consumers. With this extra publicity and attending the large markets, I'm predicting some super busy times over the next few months.

So, I grabbed the opportunity before things got too gnarly, to runaway for a few days to enjoy the wide open road, a few glasses of wine, and some time with my boyfriend.

1. The Royal Mail Hotel: We enjoyed the degustation menu for dinner; 9 courses with accompanying wines. Oh, so delicious!

2. Clouds covering the top of Mt Sturgeon

3, 4 & 5. Beautiful bright yellow canola fields near Lismore on our way to a few wineries in Penola.

6. We headed to the beach in Port Fairy to try and spot the whales whom were swimming past, but we unfortunately couldn't see them that day.

7. It was such a gorgeous sunny day we sat on the rocks and had a cold beer whilst watching a few surfers. ♦
