First Holiday Snaps!

Hello my friends

Cannot believe how time flies by and it only seems like yesterday I was heading to Melbourne with my bestie for great I wish we were still there..

The beauty that surrounds The Dandenongs is simply breathe taking and the gardens that we got the opportunity to visit were awe inspiring..

Deciding to share some of my photos with you all in different posts as there are so many for just one sitting..

My friend and I left my families house on the Tuesday and headed for the hills, with weather not really it's best and true to Melbourne weather we headed for the hills with rain and wind around us, managing to make it to Ferntree Gully, stopping at the local tourist information centre to gather some pamphlets to check out the great visiting locations...

We then made our way further up the hill to a small town called Sassafras where we would be staying for the few days in the hills, we pulled in and walked around under the large umbrella taking in a few shops and then settling down to a beautiful Devonshire Tea, sitting in the window of what looked like a small English cafe...

Having to fill in time we made our way to the famous Rhododendron Gardens, these are run by the State of Victoria and is free to visit, and WOW! what a visit, with loads of beautiful massed Rhododendron's, Azaleas, Magnolias, Fern Trees, Conifers and so so much more it was just an amazing spot to visit and I know I cannot wait to return one day again..

I got the opportunity to really play with my new camera and lenses and here are just a few snaps for you to enjoy..

Back again soon to share more of our trip with you all!
