On Mothers' Day I woke up and looked out of the window at the sunrise over the ocean.
The locals walk their dogs along the coastal walk which passes in front of the apartment. She is drinking in the magical view of the ocean
The young ones took me for a picnic in the parkland grounds of Vaucluse House. It was wonderful to be with both my girls and SILs on this special day.
Vaucluse House is a 19th century, Gothic revival style historic house, kitchen wing, stables and out buildings set in 28 acres of formal gardens and parkland. It is a museum and venue for special events. There is also a restaurant where the girls wanted to take me but it was fully booked so they decided on a picnic in the grounds.
We had loads of fun and....
a gourmet salad roll for lunch.....
..followed by games and nonsense.
We all agreed that it was a much better idea than a stuffy, expensive restaurant lunch.
I HAD A GREAT MOTHERS' DAY, THANK YOU KIDS!
