This week was a busy week - and I have been weary to my bones. The biggest hippy and I were in Condobolin and Wagga this week. Highlights of the trip include an impromptu picnic at the Grenfell Cemetery, surrounded by beautiful HUGE Italian Stone Pines - pinus pinea for those that care. For those of you that don't know, my DREAM (and plan!) is to grow pine nuts comercially
And today, Mr Duck Herder and I went on an little adventure - up through Captains Flat and over the mountains into the Upper Shoalhaven Valley. We were looking for farms and nice places to buy a property one day. We had a lovely time.
But the biggest treat was coming across The Outsider Coffee House and Gallery in Captains Flat. What a lovely cafe - lovely people, lovely place - quirky - arty - welcoming - and what a great brunch we had. The gardens are just beautiful, and you can go for little walks down to the Molonglo River. These pictures were taken while we were reading the papers waiting for our lunch. We will come here again for sure. It feels like the heart of Captains Flat this little place.
