Definitely nothing tacky here!
And now for something completely different. The next morning we drove to the pretty mountain township of Montville, about 30 minutes away.
The views are nothing short of spectacular and the gift shops are a delight. We soon walked off the coffee and lemon curd tart, which we ate at a beautiful restaurant/cafe with this magnificent view - bliss.
We always make a point of visiting the Swiss clock shop while we are in Montville. It's an amazing place, with cuckoo clocks going off every few seconds, and Swiss and Grandfather clocks of all shapes and sizes taking up every available inch of wall space. They range from touristy cute through to downright grotesque, but inbetween are some magnificent clocks. How the staff don't go starkers with the constant chimes, cuckoos, bongs, dings and rings is beyond me.
We packed up early on Saturday for our return journey, as we were anxious to get back to Brisbane in case our grandchild decided to enter the world a few days early. We took a detour to our favourite markets at Eumundi. These markets have been going for years and attract visitors from all over the country.
Seafood is sooo good for you - particularly Eumundi style.
So here we are back home, still nervously awaiting the arrival of the baby, but so refreshed after our mini-break. Try it sometime - I can highly recommend it!
