I can remember when my brother-in-law turned 25. He was the oldest person I knew outside of my parents and grandparents. At the time (when I was a teenager) he seemed SO old!
Today he turns 60 … so I guess he really is old now! 🙂
Happy birthday Grant.
There was just enough light left in the sky to catch Sarah and Ben enjoying a quiet moment at Courabyra Wines, Tumbarumba.
Tiny little green things growing on the stop of an old tin of golden syrup … it was a very big tin.
Here’s the golden syrup … pancakes anyone? Or dumplings? Pudding perhaps?
I took this photo from inside the shed featured on Deb’s blog through the week.
Tumbarumba is a little town, just off the Hume Highway, half way between Sydney and Melbourne. On the final weekend of February each year, locals and visitors gather on the banks of the creek to chat, soak up the sun, drink local wine, and eat locally produced food.
This is only my second TumbaFest; we came for the first time last year and enjoyed the relaxed nature of the day so much that we decided to come back this year. It helps that my sister and brother-in-law live here and so it’s also a great excuse to catch up with family.
The thing I like most about TumbaFest is the music. What better way to spend a sunny Saturday than sitting on the grass listening to great music? And dancing, should you be so inclined.
Here are some of my pics from TumbaFest. If you’re in the area on the final weekend of February next year, pop in. You’ll be glad you did.
