Adventuring

Before hubby heads back to work we headed out for one more day of adventuring.  He loves to keep moving, he doesn't like to sit still for too long and we didn't sit idle for too long today except for the driving part. We headed  north and decided to do a bit of bush walking which is always a fun way to get some exercise, this time around the Glass House Mountains.  It's been many years since I've taken the time to stop by here, the last time was when I was a teenager and that was a while ago. Then a short drive  to the Ewen Maddock Dam for a bit of lunch, organic sausages on the bbq, cut up salad and some bread. While we were in the area I remembered a shop a friend of mine told me about called The Natural Foodstore in Forest Glen. Oh my I enjoyed browsing through the shop, there was soo much I could have bought but settled for mangoes and a rockmelon,  some yummy tea and some organic grapefruit essential oil to add to some more lip balms I would like to make. I said to my hubby that if we lived closer I would surely be visiting often, luckily it's a long drive for us.  
We headed home after that in a car minus air conditioning just the old fashion four windows.  I didn't realise how much we heavily rely upon it, it's not much fun without it so off to the mechanics it will need to go.

How was your day today?  I hope that you were able to keep cool where ever you are, it's been so terribly hot in this country of ours lately, too hot.

Take care♥

  8. We just returned from the Werribee Zoo (in Melbourne). The kids loved it. It was a beautiful day too. I finally brought along my SLR and zoom lens and had some fun taking shots of the animals and scenery. I know you would be impressed! I was :) Hope you had a great festive season and new year's Catherine.

  12. Oh I love your adventures Catherine! Because we live kinda close you always inspire me to travel to new places of head back to beautiful old ones. Glass House Mountains...haven't walked that part of the world since the babies came along. Had a beautiful day at Mt.Glorious yesterday so perhaps this could be our next adventure. Thanks for sharing and hope all is lovely :) x

  13. A lovely part of the world - one I would definitely like to explore one day. I've been spending most of the last few day inside with the air con on - only venturing out in the late afternoon for a swim and a lay in the sun (just for a short time).
