Australia: Part Two

We took a little drive to Swan Valley... the food there is wonderful, but mostly I wanted to show the hubs the vineyards while there were grapes on there. He's only ever visited during the winter months, so everything looked so dead and grey. 

My family is incapable of taking pictures without making faces. You'll see. Also, the hubs looks to be questioning his decision to be part of my family.

Holy ham hock, Batman!

We visited a vineyard after to walk around and have some coffee and desserts. And hopscotch.

The chocolate factory is seriously ridiculous. Whenever I walk in, I want to grab everything and go nuts. Some of the yummiest chocolate I've ever had.

And their hot chocolate will make you forget your own name momentarily. It's so simple... their chocolate + hot milk. Stir, and try not to spill too much of it.
We checked out a little restaurant in Nedlands with beautiful food and even more beautiful views. I missed seeing all those boats bobbing around, and jellyfish in the water. Silly little jellyfish. 

We ate so much and often while we were there... I'm so not used to eating out that much, so by the first week, I'd kind of hit my limit hehe But the food is amazing... both the old favourites and the new places my sisters have found since I left years ago.

More pictures to come!

I live in W.A and when we travel to Perth we visit Swan Valley. It is truly gorgeous and has many delightful treats on offer. Elmars, is a restaurant worth visiting too.
