April 2014 Visit to Victoria


Hi All,
We have had a very eventful month.

We had a late season Cyclone - Ita come through on April 12th. No damage here thank goodness but a fair bit of wind & rain:


The next day everything was back to normal.

Dave had a great Idea on how to make mowing the lawn more fun,
 Luckily he can mow 1 handed :)

We also had a Trip to Victoria for Daves Mum's 80th Birthday.
We flew into Melbourne where our good friends Rob & Marg picked us up & took us back to their house for a few day in Tooklarook - near Rosebud.
As expected the weather was freezing - for us anyway!
But Rob & Marg took us sight seeing along the Peninsula it was beautiful:

You can see how rugged up we were!

Absolutely Beautiful. Thanks Rob & Marg for a great few days!
On our last night in Melbourne we caught up with Dave's Niece Emily & her husband Alex for a lovely dinner at the Rosebud RSL. It was really great to see them both.

Then the next day we picked up a hire car & drove to Wodonga to see Dave's Family.
As we grew up in Albury/Wodonga we always catch up with a few of our dearest friends whose friendship has survived many years & thousands of Kilometres between visits.
We had a lovely dinner with Narelle before she flew out on holiday to Perth, had a cuppa with Karyn & a great catch up chat - unfortunately because we were so happy to see them & so involved in chatter didn't take photos of either of them :(
Then there was my night out with Mem - lets just say a lot of drinks involved there, but a great night out dancing at the Carriers where her husband Shane is the DJ - lots of ACDC - thanks Shane :)

This was taken at dinner before things got messy :)

Then of course the reason we were there for Dave's Mum's 80th. A lovely dinner at the Asian Restaurant at the SS & A Club in Albury.

& Us :)
The next day we drove back to Melbourne to fly home - a very hectic week!
Now Both back  at work, not too much planned for this month but who knows :)
Cheers & happy Travels Shell
