The next day my husband and I went away for a few days. We decided to drive interstate to Adelaide and visit family and friends and instead of driving the straight route we drove along the Great Ocean Road to see the beautiful coastline that everyone always talks about.
We stayed at Apollo Bay the first night and then set off early the next morning for a day of sightseeing. The first stop was at Ngatanwarr, which was part of the Great Otways National Park. We went on the Maits Rest Rain-forest Walk and because it was 7.30 in the morning we were the only ones there. It was so lush and green.

Loch Ard Gorge was beautiful, almost like a secluded beach, except there were many tourists there!

After a long day of sightseeing the beautiful coast we stayed the night at Warrnambool and set off early the next morning for the eight hour drive to Adelaide.
We had a lovely time in Adelaide visiting family and friends and one night we were having dinner at Brighton beach and we watched a beautiful sunset.

We were only there a few days and we had the long drive back home but our daughter had dinner waiting for us when we arrived.
I spent the next few days packing up the Christmas decorations and cleaning the house.
Last week I taught crazy quilting at the Victorian Embroiderer's Guild. It was a two day class and they were a lovely enthusiastic class and one of the ladies even finished her journal cover and the others weren't far behind.
After that great rest and change of scenery I feel ready to start 2015. I wonder what this year will bring?
Bye for now,
