Anniversary meanders in Greyton

For our anniversary weekend we went to Greyton, we didn’t really know what to expect seeing as a lot of the places that look AMAZING on the internet seem to be just a big old okay when arriving, but Greyton is what dreams are made of.   We packed some car snacks and headed off for our adventure as soon as we got out of the hustle and bustle of the city it was like pure magic.  The colours of the fields, grazing sheep and extraordinary wind turbines had us oohing and aahing all along the ride.  We kept stopping to take photos of the amazing colours of the fields,  I wish I could live in those fields or at least get a pretty dress in the yellow colour!

When we arrived in Greyton we were kind of bummed to have missed the market, its suppose to be amazing, but we couldn’t manage to get out of bed early for our anniversary. On our arrival we were greeted by an old fashioned horse and buggy car just doing its thing on the road, the streets were a buzz with people trying to take in all the beauty of this wonderful mountainside town.  We decided to walk around the town, exploring all the hidden shops and ended it all off with smoothie at the cutest little tea garden I’ve ever been in.  Maybe next time we will get up early to get to the market on time, maybe even stay in one of the cute little accommodation they have all over the show.  Or maybe I’ll just give up on city life and go live in this incredible little town right now.

Beach walks

Happy Friday everybody! I’m feeling mighty fine lately, maybe its the cloudy weather or maybe its because when you think about it life really is good right now.   All the blessings in life, no matter how small is worth celebrating! I guess I should do a little dance?

On Wednesday we went on a trip down memory lane with Carl’s dad, all around his old stomping ground, telling us cute little stories, showing us where he used to live.  I always thought I had a really great memory, but wow, Carl’s dad is out of this world!

We stopped for a quick walk on the beach, sometimes when you get caught up in the destination you forget to take a breather and just enjoy the moment and beauty of things.  I never forget, I’m pretty sure I must be the most irritating person to travel with, I just want to experience everything! Except heights, sharks or anything where I don’t feel safe! I’m not a crazy person!

^^ Carl and I felt so bad walking on the shells.  It felt like we were destroying someone’s home just for the fun of it.

^^ I’ve never seen one of these guys ( Blue bottles), but I have heard the horror stories of how the sting of these guys hurts.  I felt really left out as a child, everyone talking about the sting and how horrible it is.

^^ I really like its color!

^^ Carl looks really happy with his beach discoveries! On a completely side note, I really hate his glasses, every time it tints up I just see the weird band nerd that no one wants to talk to, because he smells like lady deodorant.

What’s your weekend plans?
