Spanish Cheese Prawns
Olive oil tasting
Surprise Staycation at Brighton planned by the boyfriend x Brighton beach x Lunch at Two Buoys x Horseback riding and winery tours x Dinner at Tom Phat
I haven’t had such a good day in such a long time! Woke up to the loveliest face beside, and we set off from our one night staycation at Brighton. Drove down to Brighton beach where we sat down to have fish fillet and coffee while enjoying the sun and the subtle sea breeze all at the same time. Took on another 20 minutes drive over to Two Buoys to have tapas styled lunch as recommended by the boyfriend. The first bite of the Spanish Cheese Prawns was actually good, but as it goes down the throat the spiciness starts to set in which was pretty interesting! Nothing too spicy that we can’t handle though.
And the highlight of the day was the four hour long horseback riding through the winery over in Mornington. I had such a great fear when I first got on the horse that was assigned to me – Hannah – but she turned out to be quite a good ride! Trotting was pretty scary initially, but as we rode through the winery and the muddy trails it just got better. We got to taste quite a bit of white and red wine at the winery, and I got high rather quickly it became less fearful riding on a horse. (Think about drink driving, I was drink riding!)
It’s so good to be able to finally strike another item off my bucket list with the one that matters the most. So glad that this sweetheart has got everything planned out while I was so far away from him. Being in Melbourne makes me feel like I’m an overseas student without the homework and stress. Being with Jon makes me live the life that I’ve never had. x
