Off and away and FNWF

Yesterday Carleen and I got the ferry from Queenscliff to Sorrento and then drove towards Merrijig.
We stopped ro look for a cache at a chocolate making place -success - 
The surrounding countryside is beautiful.   
We stopped for a late lunch at Yea, and another cache 😁
The cache was on the rail trail picknicked near the train station.
We drove then to Merrigij and to where we are staying
The view out the window thru the fly screen 😁.
Last night was FNWF and I didn't get a lot done by the time we settled in and had dinner I was just about ready for bed, but I did get some wool and needles out, cast on for a fingerless glove, did 4 rows and made a mistake so I had to pull it out and start again.
This is where I finished last night.
Tou can see the other Friday Nighters over at Cheryl blog. 
Nearly time once again to be getting dinner.
Happy stitching.

Your post literally makes me dream of coming back to Australia and New Zealand again. Two weeks was just too short!
