The plan was a coffee and then to the supermarket. We had the coffee, or Breakfast Dessert as I declared it:
Mr FD has led a rather quiet life since his knee replacement in late July, but today he was in dire need of an outing; so the supermarket plan was scrapped and we hit the road for an adventure.
The trail led us to the Jondaryan Woolshed, almost one hundred kilometres from our Viilage! The last time I had visited the Woolshed, we were living in Toowoomba and our children were tiny. We all have memories of a daughter attempting to milk a cow only to be splattered by a rush of cow poo. Ahh the memories of childhood!
It has changed quite a bit, and now boasts a fine restaurant, where we had a tasty burger accompanied by a lovely glass of wine. And a pot of tea!
A few pictures will tell the story better than mere words…
On the way we passed Saint Anne’s Church built in 1865 by the then owners of the Jondaryan Homestead. It is apparently identical to the church represented on the Australian fifty dollar bill. I haven’t seen a $50 note for awhile so can’t say if that is true!
One end of the Woolshed was staged for a wedding that evening. There were fairy lights hanging above beautifully set tables, and I am sure at night the atmosphere would be magical. Hopefully, the bride’s perfume will cover the aroma of wool fat that has seeped into the floors over the many decades the woodshed was an actual shearing shed! Lovely backdrop though.
We are going to try for groceries tomorrow…who knows where that might take us!
