A couple of weeks ago, I shared a lovely day out with friends. We visited the small country town of historic Millthorpe in NSW AU.. It’s only the second time I’ve been there.
Millthorpe appears to be quiet, but is also a thriving town – it draws people with it’s wonderful sights, historic buildings, friendly people and markets, great coffee and lots more.. I think it has a Colonial feel about it. A mix of old and new.
It was great to wander around with the camera taking casual shots along the way.
Back in August, I bought myself a small mirrorless Panasonic. I’m still learning this camera and it’s a great size to carry – so I took it with me on the day.
It was a very hot November day and very glary.
We stopped at the Old Mill cafe for coffee… they have amazing food (sooo not good for the waistline, but very delicious) and the staff and atmosphere are friendly and welcoming. The cafe is hidden behind these trees.
..and these are only some of their delicious home made goodies..
We walked around for a few hours enjoying the ‘old’ buildings, lovely shops, some art and the local sights. A simple fun day.
This was a big day out for me with my back, but I did it! (Strange the things that we see as accomplishments when we are reduced to basics). Something I hadn’t been able to do for quite a while now. Feels so good to be out and about again 🙂
The rose image really shows the kind of day it was. Very sunny, very glary, a nice breeze. Just a great day! Simple things..
