So last weekend we went down to the south coast the get away from Sydney and I thought I’d share a few of my favourite things about being there. Despite the fact that it can normally be a little boring down there (especially when it rains practically all bloody weekend!) we found some great stuff to do and cute places to go.
The Cuckoo Clock shop in the main street of Berry is a must see! It has SO much great stuff! I wanted one of everything (especially all the miniature animals for your clocks!) But settled for these little deers for my collection.
Also while you’re in Berry be sure to stop and get some donuts from the famous Hot Donut Van! They are awesome and im sure, incredibly bad for you.
We went back to Berry for their “sunday markets” and I saw some of the weirdest things made by some of the strangest people on the planet. These were my two favourites. The Alice in Wonderland high chair was actually kind of cool, but next to the posessed baby pillow, who could choose?
Next to the weird product stalls was one of those kiddy farms (the petting zoo type, not the ones where they breed children) and I couldn’t help but take some photos of these aborable baby guinea pigs (which kind of looked a little too small to be away from mum!) and bunnies! It made me wish I’d taken juno along! But really, I do hate they are still allowed to have these things, the people running it were such bogans and I ended up really sad the animals had to go home with them.
This is another great place to stop if you’re ever in the area. One Wise Owl is part of the “Jindy Andy Mill” group of shops right near Callala Bay and it is really cute! It’s all about sustainable eco-friendly products and they had some really great things there, especially for kids. We stopped in for a while and were pleasantly surprised to find they also do good coffee! Next door to them is a scrapbooking superstore combined with a miniature shop! It’s like heaven, even though I don’t own a dollhouse or scrapbook.
The other thing I really like about the south coast is that people are kind of stuck in a bit of a time warp, and sometimes its for the better, like this pretty green shed which I stopped to take a photo of on the way home. It has obviously been this way for quite some time! But it’s so great. I love it. and now I want a wall that colour. Kx
