After a nice big sleep recovering from our huge day along the Great Ocean Road, we headed out Thursday further up the mountains to a lovely little village called Olinda. Think Montville/Maleny, lots of BnBs, lovely little cafes, lots of 'handmade' shops and beautiful foresty views.
We stopped in for a short but sweet and rather moving visit to a restaurant and beer house to pay our respects to the memory of Derani and The Man's dearly departed little sister before heading back to one of the little cafes for a coffee and some delicious cakes. The food there looked wonderful and we were tempted to indulge but we were saving up for dinner that night! It was a lovely, relaxing day and we spent ages just chatting and enjoying the beautiful surrounds.
Then we headed back home for an early Christmas!
You might remember from my last trip to Melbourne how much I raved about Misty's Diner. If you're ever in Melbourne you seriously have to go there, even just once. The food is ridiculous! I suggest wearing comfy pants and not eating much beforehand.
