We left Melbourne Friday afternoon after a leisurely morning where I pottered round and Steve did some work. We headed to a village called Birregurra where we had planned to spend two nights and had dinner reservations at an amazing restaurant called Brae.
Brae has really transformed this sleepy, country grows as its arrival has meant more visitors, increased business for the B&Bs and the one taxi driver as well as a need for additional eateries to cater for the other meals people need to have when away for the weekend. It's interesting to see how this little village transforms and to be able to see it at the beginning of it's journey was a privilege.
We enjoyed dinner at the local pub the second night and found it very welcoming and friendly. The landlord recognised us from our first drink there the day before and there was a warm vibe to the place.
Things weren't quite as smooth as we'd have liked it though as upon our arrival at our B&B we found out I had booked the wrong nights and we'd arrived a day early and they were fully booked! They were very helpful though and found us a cottage just outside the village on a sheep farm of all things!
So we embraced the experience and headed over, We enjoyed a short walk around the property as the cottage was cleaned and it really worked out for us.
It's been a week of celebration as we welcome Baby Luke Basham to our family. My wee baby cousin Joanna is a momma! Look how gorgeous and small he is. Can't wait to meet this little guy!
