Week in Rye

Here I am four days into our week camping in the seaside village of Rye and we have had almost all four seasons in those four days. We arrived on Wednesday night, got our camp all set up and caught up with our friends that are staying as well. But at about 11.00pm the wind started and around 2.00am  our annex was hit buy the beginning of the 86km winds and came down like a pile of cards. There was nothing we could do until daylight so we sat and listened as Mother Nature told us who was boss. Once daylight emerged we cleaned up our mess and luckily nothing was damaged just wet and messy. 
Thursday's weather was better with just a few showers and a bit windy. But it was made better with the visit from my daughter Rachel and my two adorable granddaughters Clare and Mikayla. It was Mikayla's first time playing on the beach and she was very excited and super cute. She was running around sideways like a crab.

Thursday evening four of us girls had the extreme pleasure of heading to Peninsula Hot Springs. The Bath House area of the springs consists of more than 20 different bathing experiences. These include a cave pool, reflexology walk, Turkish steam bath, Sauna, cold plunge pools, family bathing area, massaging mineral showers, hilltop pool offering 360 degree views and indoor and outdoor footbaths. The hot pools temperature ranges between 37c and 43c. 

Friday was a very lazy old day and Saturday us girls headed off to check out a couple of local markets. 
In my opinion Red Hill market is one of the best markets in Victoria. There are lots of many and varied products, lost of yummy food and plenty of beautiful fresh local produce. 

Today we headed to the tiny village of Tyabb to wander through the huge antique stores and many craft and various other speciality stores. I have been searching for something unusual to use in a wind chime I am making and yeah I found it in a little junk shed. I will share it with you when my project is finished. We then drove onto Hastings for lunch.

So now I bid you all goodnight as I prepare to snuggle up in my cosy bed in our camper Myrtle.
