Queen's Birthday

John and I make it our business to head off for a drive/walk most Sundays, weather permitting. This weekend we drove to Maryborough Rail Station for lunch where we enjoyed a fabulous curried lamb and vegie soup with sourdough bread. The sun was beautiful after we drove via Ballarat's miserable morning of rain. After lunch headed off for a walk around Maldon.
Working in the rail industry, he was interested to see how the staion had come up after being restored.

At the station there is a gentleman who sells scarves from Turkey. He travels regularly there to bring them home. Couldn't resist buying a couple. I am not a purple person but liked this striped one and also picked up this lovely green one. $15 each.
I enjoyed a conversation with him re his travels to Turkey. We chatted about my Paternal Grandfather who was born in Lozingrad in Turkey. Found out that "grad" is Russian". He was very informative, could have talked to him all day.

Monday - After lunch walked the Yarra Trail at the Fairfield Boatshed. Not as sunny as the day before, though it was a nice afternoon, especially sitting by the Yarra with a hot cup of tea and scones.
