Delivering Quilts and a Train Trip
It's a lovely relaxing trip and although the day was a bit wet and overcast for most of the day we did enjoy the journey. The train runs from Belgrave to Gembrook and most of the tourists only travel half way to Lakeside and then take the return train. The line from lakeside to Gembrook has only been opened since 1998 and I hadn't traveled that part before so we did the whole trip and we were lucky to chose this week to travel as they close that part of the line for winter as they don't get enough tourists making that part of the trip. DH and I were the only travelers to Gembrook on Wednesday, along with 6 train staff volunteers. We enjoyed a lunch at the Gembrook Bakery and then sat by the fire in the station until we made the return trip.
We finished off the night with a Trivia night at a local pub and caught up with our youngest DD and her friend. We came 3rd I think thanks to the spread of ages we were able to cover more topics. LOL.
It was a lovely break but the weather has certainly cooled off and winter will be here before we know it so I'd better get busy quilting for the needy again.
