This weekend I got to leave the eastern suburbs for a bit and head into the Yarra Valley with my favorite Aussies, the Bongers! Ian, Josie, their kids, Josie’s brother, Ian’s parents & I all visited the Yarra Valley chocolaterie & creamery for some intensely chocolate chocolate ice cream. I wish I could describe how chocolatey it was, but I’m still in chocolate coma. (And I’m definitely returning ASAP.) I love getting away from the city & suburbs and into the countryside even just for a few hours.
After our chocolate fix, we visited Yering Station winery to enjoy the autumn leaves. (Yes, fall in June! It’s shocking.) My weekend finished up well with a trip to the footy game with some friends. As I’ve said before, I root (or “barrack” as Australians say) for the North Melbourne Kangaroos. We played St. Kilda and beat them by 68 pts! After a couple of disappointing losses in the past two weeks, it was a great comeback.
