Whisked away for the weekend!!

Yep as the title of my post suggests I was whisked away for the weekend by my partner to celebrate our anniversary!!!

He took me away to a surprise location a few hours out of Brisbane....... can you guess where??

It was a lovely winery called Captain's Paddock - it was soooooo beautiful!!

There is only one cottage on the vineyard so we had the place to our selves, so we wandered the vines for the afternoon.
and we were followed around by one of the owners dog's - Merlot (Wonder why she got that name!) she was so friendly but wasn't to happy about me taking her photo!

We were served the most amazing dinner and dessert in the cottage right by the roaring fire along with some of the Merlot wine they make. It was so relaxing and romantic, I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Then this morning we were served a massive hot breakfast on the veranda looking out at this view.......

I was so sad to leave however my spirits were lifted a little on the way home when we stopped in at this humongous antique shop in Esk.

Can you see my partner in this photo? He really wanted to be in a photo for the blog so he stuck his head in this shot with out me realising!!!!

I didn't end up buying anything here but loved looking around at lots of beautiful things.

It's so depressing to think what I left behind this morning and having to go back to the day job tomorrow.

It was an amazing weekend and if you get the opportunity I'd highly recommend you stay at Captain's Paddock and let yourself be totally looked after by the great hosts there!
