During my week of fashion shows, I took 24 hours off to go camping with my family!
The plan was to stay on a cow farm.
With a forecast of thunderstorms, rain and an overnight temperature of 3 degrees.
How did I manage to be convinced of this???
Haha well, we had already committed to it.
Plus we were going to stay at a friend’s farm and join 10 (maybe 12) other families and couples.
We didn’t want to miss out!
It turned out that the whole experience was pretty luxurious…
(Except the bit where I had to sleep in a tent, in a thunderstorm.)
THE VIEW was amazing!!
We were up high in the landscape; and even though we were 20kms inland, we could see the sun setting over the glittering ocean. It was so pretty.
Our friends also had a lovely farm house, with a big fireplace. They had meats roasting on a spit. Lots of room for the kids to play. They had working toilets, hot showers and hey, they even had a dishwasher. Life was good.
The next morning, we had gorgeous sunshine.
The fields sparkled with bright flowers and juicy grass.
The hills were alive with the sounds of mooing cows.
We headed off for a walk to see the cows and horses.
Now that’s a sight I won’t forget. A bunch of happy horses surrounded by happy children, surrounded by a field of yellow daisies, surrounded by a forest of eucalyptus trees.
The whole 24 hours was just magical.
It certainly was a huge change of scene for me.
Really want to thank our friends G & S for the kind invitation. (Also want to thank my husband for setting up and taking down our tents, and packing and unpacking the car.)
After lunch we headed home.
And what did I do? I washed my hair, dolled myself up, wolfed down some dinner and I drove off to my last 2 fashion shows for the year – haha!
