MY WORLD ~ A Charming Cottage Stay

On our recent trip, we came across this truly charming
Victorian cottage in Port Fairy. It had so much character about it
that of course we had to stay there.

Fully restored and exceeding its former glory with the
addition of modern appliances, it offered a spacious living
area with a comfortable dining and beautiful Jarrah,
Eucalyptus marginata floors,

one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in,

and a delightful visitor, the best company and so polite.

He checked out the bedroom and seemed to approve,

inspected the kitchen, stayed for a little chat,

and was ready to leave again. So much more entertaining than
watching the box.

Both the cottage, the seaside and bird rookery will
most certainly draw us back again.

  4. What a lovely little cottage, and the cat just added to the country atmosphere, I'm sure. That cottage could be in the Eastern Cape in South Africa, it's so much like places Grant and I stay in on our bike sortees. Have a blessed day, Arija. Jo
