And a little walk along the foreshore to this…………(and I cannot believe I missed some photos with the little ones looking at all this!)…..
So as if that wasn't enough we then packed ourselves back in the car for a quick lunch stop and then a 30 minute drive to the Goolwa Animal Farm and it did not disappoint…. this has to be one of the best value outings for parents and especially grandparents south of Adelaide! Maisie clucked and quacked at the appropriate times but the bleating of the sheep and goats took her aback….much louder than she expected. The pigs were quite large too and it was a delight to see them enjoying their watermelon. As you walk through the different enclosures there were chimes to play and things to see……….
The couple who run this farm especially for children are actually from York in the UK! They have been here seven years and wish they had come twenty years earlier! They were so hospitable and kind and we even had a ride behind the tractor………...
And as an added bonus there is a huge play area complete with picnic settings, an obstacle course, bouncy toys to play on, an enormous sand pit, a race track and a cubby house that Maisie took a liking to……….and all right next to the animals…….
Just a wonderful day with lasting memories for us all. The roses at home have been just wonderful and I am sorry that we will miss their blooms while we are away. The butterflies are hatching every day and one even posed for me on one of the roses……….
I promise to get back to the William Morris quilt count and more pattern giveaways but that will have to wait until after our Norfolk Island adventure…..till then take good care x
