Sunday - the story so far

...So we arrived in Port Elliott on Thursday night right before dark and our timing worked out well. Tasmin had us up most of that first night with her antics and by 6am or so when we went in to the babies' room again, she was right in Angus's cot, terrorising him. Friday we were all pretty tired and it was a resting day, getting up only to visiting the playground nearby. Saturday we travelled to Victor Harbour and Sunday we decided to take the Sunday-only train (normally a steam train but diesel in winter) to Goolwa.

...the view from our bedroom

Our teeny tiny cabin

Port Elliott's main street

Tassie adored the short train ride to Goolwa

I loved the antique details inside the train

Here were are arriving in Goolwa

Tassie and I discoved a little craft shop at the train station

I bought a packet of heritage train tickets for $2 - bargain!

The station isn't so different from 100 years ago

The bridge to Hindmarsh Island and the cafe we went to later in the day

Sweet little gift shops

And here is my treasure... a pencil sharpener bought for $4.50 to complete my antique miniatures collection (I have the vintage typewriter and the Singer sewing machine)
