We had a lovely weekend away. The engagement party went well, dress requirements were cocktail wear so all of the guests looked wonderful. I love parties were everyone dresses up, there are so many pretty shoes to admire.
We spent Sunday and Monday exploring the countryside and eating. We ate a lot! There are so many beautiful houses/mansions in the Southern Highlands with wonderful gardens. So much to look at! Fortunately for me WH drove and I got to admire without having to watch the road.
We stopped at Berry to have some lunch at a cafe. It was so busy, people everywhere. We sat outside and people watched. I love people watching especially when there is such a variety of people around. After lunch we explored the museum and would definitely love to spend some more time looking through it.
We stopped at the local markets in Berrima and bought some yummy stuff from the fudge man as well as a yummy smelling candle from the candle lady!
Berrima has lots of lovely shops and buildings it was definitely a favourite and we will visit again.
Afternoon tea was at the Black Swan Inn in Berrima, we loved this place. If you ever visit Berrima you must stop and have a look through the building. Our tea and cake was lovely too!We stayed at Berida Manor in Bowral it was a quaint place to stay and we had a lovely 3 course meal in their restaurant. The building has an interesting history but it is and old building so if you decide to stay do not expect anything fancy, however it was nice and for the price of our package nothing to complain about.
On Sunday we played golf, okay Nick played golf I walked along with him and admired the golf course. Then we had coffee in town and shopped and shopped some more then we had lunch at Briar's Country Pub in Moss Vale. Briar's was lovely and so was the food. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine and the fact that it was Monday and we weren't at work! Unfortunately we couldn't spend the afternoon relaxing there and we made our way home stopping at a few more shops, admiring more gorgeous homes and enjoying each others company.Photo Source: McCarthy Designs
