Day in Daylesford

Today’s journey to Daylesford was a great day, a bit chilly but great. Daylesford is a pretty trendy township, with lots of arty shops, cafes, and on the weekend’s lots of tourists. Today was the one day of the month that the “Makers Craft Market” was on, so that was first on the agenda. We then visited the local “Farmers Market”, yum you can’t go past local fresh produce. Close to Daylesford is a tiny village called “Hepburn Springs” which is an area well known for the local mineral springs and a spa resort. I wanted to go and check it out and get some information, as I think it might be just the right place for my cousin Susan and I to go spend a weekend at. It was starting to get a bit chilly so we thought it would be a good idea to have a feed of nice hot fish n’ chips – yummy. As the temperature started to drop it was still nice sitting eating our not so healthy meal looking out over Jubilee Lake. Even though it was a dreary cloudy day the reflections were pretty impressive. We finished our day of with a visit to two very dear friends of mine. Tim and Brian are the owners of a beautiful Bed and breakfast called “Old Chilli”. They are so lovely it was great to catch up after not having seen them in quite a while. So my challenge goal today was to just enjoy my day with Shane and that is exactly what I did.
