...plenty of space to run around...
...and walks through the village, catching lizards with lovely aunts.And for me, this gorgeous Aga, apparently the largest coke fueled stove still operating in the southern hemisphere. The manager was kind enough to let me, an Aga groupie, (sad I know) take a peak and some photos. Taking centre stage in the massive hotel kitchen, it was just gorgeous. I'll spare you the hundreds of photos, but the kitchen was massive and divine, and I could easily imagine the thousands of meals prepared in it over the decades.
I'm nostalgically drawn to the classic Australian country hotel kitchen. My great aunt owned a huge country guest house in South Australia, and I have fond memories of sitting on the kitchen counter eating pink wafer biscuits from a big glass jar as a small child. This kitchen brought back those memories from my childhood. And hopefully this weekend created some new ones for our family.
It's been super busy here at chez Hugo and Elsa these past few weeks, so I'm pleased it's school holidays here and we can have some much needed family down time. If only it would stop bloody raining!
