I thought yesterday day was full on today was so much worse.
Started with a short walk through town to grab a much-needed coffee then back to the car and on the road out to Bridestowe Lavender farms.
The only word I can think of to best describes it. Row upon row upon row of blossoming lavender. The sounds of bees buzzing all around. The rolling mountings. Such beauty can only be experienced. I can’t explain it in words and I don’t feel the pictures do it justice.
We also tried their Lavender ice cream. It tastes like vanilla with subtle Lavender but left a stronger Lavender aftertaste. Was so good.
After an hour or so of walking the fields, we got back in the car and headed out to a few vineyards (Pipers Brook & Jansz) for some wine tasting (we found the wine for our wedding). Pipers Brook had a free campground right next to the vineyard and out the front the had this little area where you could buy a glass or a bottle of wine and go sit and listen to music. They had tables and chairs and beanbags and picnic blankets. It was such a great idea. At Jansz, we sat in the open room with big windows and looked out over a little pond as we tasted our wines. They were both beautiful experiences but both completely different.
Then back in the car and out to Hillwood Berry farms. Millie loved walking through the rows of strawberries seeing how many she could fit in her mouth at one time. We picked our own Strawberries, Blueberries, and raspberries. So Millie will have lots to snack on over the next week.
When we got back to Launceston we had a bit of a relax before we took to the streets again to see the City Park and Gardens and then headed to dinner with Andrew’s parents.
Tomorrow we will be back in the car and out to see so many more new things that I can not wait to share with you all.
So until tomorrow.
