Country town of Yarragon

The Queen celebrated two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on 21 April and her official birthday on the second Saturday in June.

But now, for the first time, we are celebrating the King’s Birthday Long Weekend which takes place from Saturday 10th June to Monday 12th June 2023. It is a public holiday today, Monday so who cares what it is for.

Two of my good friends and I and hubby decided to go for a drive to the country town of Yarragon.

And as usual, first is coffee and food at the Yarragon Tearoom.

This tearoom had everything from jams, lollies, biscuits to wine.

Just a small town but enjoyed walking and feeling the different atmosphere.

Enjoyed browsing inside the Art Gallery.

Looked inside some of the store window. Linked to Ludwig’s Monday Windows

We met this man, an ex police officer named George, but is now doing some woodwork in his garage.

George pointed us towards the Trash and Treasure shop at the end of the road.

A view of some more quaint shops before heading home. didn’t even think that shops close that early… it wasn’t even 4 yet. But I guess it is a country town…

    Looks like a great place for a fairly leisurely day out 🙂 I’m surprised you get a public holiday for the King’s Birthday, we certainly don’t get one here (nor used to for the Queen’s)!!

    1. Teresa says:

      Well I really don’t know.. but who am I to complain haha
