Today we ventured to Victor Harbour. My friend Sara joined us and was able to guide us toward thing we may have otherwise missed. Including this sculpture.
At Victor Harbour, there's a horse pulled team that you can ride to Granite Island that's inhabited by cute little penguins. Unfortunately, it didn't look like they were running today and we were cold, hungry and caffeine deprived.
As we had left first thing, a coffee and breakfast stop was a priority. Two Bees fit the bill.
After our morning snack we ventured around some shops and came across this little gem that had loads of very sweet handmade items. It was really hard to not buy everything in the store. I did leave with many creative ideas including necktie handbags, fun stuffed animals and baby apparel.
Sara explained that during certain times of the year whales can be seen along the coast migrating.
We got caught up looking at various shops and never did walk to Geanite Island. Perhaps we'll go again when the kids are out of school. I know they'd enjoy adventuring around the island and along the beaches.
Before heading home we stopped at a Port Elliot resturant called Flying Fish for some of the best fish and chips I'd ever tasted.
We then stopped at Horshoe Bay where Mom and Dad did a little beach walking.
At the edge of the seashore, we saw these sea grass fibre balls. They were like nothing we'd ever seen before.
It was a good trip. Again, it was a bit rushed and we could've easily spent more time there. I'm sure we'll head back to discover more secrets the coast may have to offer.
Once home, I went for a run. I really just wanted a nap. I ran less than half the distance listed. I figure it's still better than not running at all.
James accompanied me in the run in the stroller. Back at home, a toy flyer was realized. Both kids poured over it, circling the toys they liked.
Here, the financial year is from July first to June 30st. The car dealerships flood the airwaves with their clearances and the stores advertise on TV and mail to PUSH people to put toys on lay-buy to be retrieved before Christmas. I don't buy into it, the kids sure enjoy pouring over the advertisements just as many of us did the Sears catalog when it would be released.
We also stopped by the shops today. Grandma Marty and Grandpa Bob are impressed by the rows upon rows of yummy chocolate that occupy large amounts of floor space in many of the grocery and department stores.
