Exploring Brisbane – Day 1

My Daughter and her Husband moved to Brisbane in September 2017, and I have not seen them since, of course, we have chatted on the phone, Facebook and such, but it is not the same.

Summer Outings – Warratina Lavender Farm

Just 1 hour from Melbourne (40 minutes from us), nestled on the gentle slopes of Yarra Valley is Warratina Lavender Farm.

According to their…
