Here's the Crazy Poodle with his shaggy winter coat left long to survive an outdoor Aussie winter. It's been chilly this week. I scraped frost off the car windscreen on Wednesday which is virtually unheard of here in Melbourne.
Mutt's happy to have been out for a decent walk, after a week where we were all office-bound, and he didn't get the attention he thought he deserved!
His elephant friends were found in the grounds at Merricks General Wine Store on the hinterland of the Mornington Peninsula.
|Good things come in little packages!|
We had walked from Red Hill South to Merricks Station Ground along the disused Rail Trail. It's a peaceful 6.5 km stroll past vineyards and pony paddocks
through the pine trees and forests. We love this walk as it offers a different side of the Mornington Peninsula than our usual beach walks.
It was great to arrive at the Merricks General Wine Store in time for a cuppa and cake. They have regular exhibitions at the adjoining Merricks House Gallery which showcase the talents of prominent Aussie Artists and Sculptors. These elephants above are by Matt Hill and are for sale if you have a spare $35,000.
It's a lovely forest walk through the rolling countryside
Highly recommended if you're in the area!
