A very impromptu getaway for Mr A and I last weekend proved to be just what we needed after our long week.  We were looking for an excuse to escape for our 10th wedding anniversary (which slipped by last September) so when the opportunity came up we took it.
The south coast of New South Wales is such a wonderful place to visit – I am not one to head south very often but when I do I am constantly reminded of how picturesque and tranquil this wonderful country of ours is.  
Our first stop was Kiama – I have not been to Kiama since my school days and it is so much prettier than I remembered.

 The lighthouse stood majestically on the hill and the famous Kiama blow hole did it’s thing!

 After a lovely drive through the Kangaroo Valley we arrived at our destination for the night – Peppers Craigeburn in Bowral.  The air felt clean and the lush greenery we could see from our room was wonderful.

And to end our weekend one last photo of my trusty little Honda who has served me so well for the past 10 years – the main reason for our little trip was to pick up a new car we had ordered and hand over my lovely CRV.  A small little glitch with our new car meant that we were unable to take her home just yet.  We headed off in a loan car until our new one is delivered to us but I felt a little sad as we left her sitting there by her lonesome in the dealership.  I could hear her saying “they have driven me 3 hours south and just left me here”.  Good bye my little friend – may you find a new owner that will love you like I did!
On a final note – thank you to all my lovely friends who left such heartfelt comments after yesterday’s post – it really did mean a lot.

  1. How lovely to get away just the 2 of you. Kiama looks a great spot. Funny how we get attached to our cars, often giving them names and personality. Sounds like you’ve done many miles together and have good memories. Now for the next 10 years in the new one.

  2. That looks like a gorgeous weekend. My cousins live in Kangaroo Valley and we were there in 2009 for one of their weddings. It was beautiful! I love Kiama too. Such a great spot!

  3. Hi Leanne – funnily enough Peppers Craigieburn is one of the venues we are looking at to hold the Mumpreneurs Intensive in June. Would love your feedback on the venue. Can just imagine a fire crackling in winter and some red wine (oh and lots of business planning and seminars too!).
