Cheers!



You might wonder what there is to see and do in the country town of Toodyay 85km north-east of Perth on a five hour day trip. If you are into the history of the towns you visit there is much to keep you busy. Have a look at the Toodyay Visitors Centre link here to see what I mean. First things first coffee! First stop off the train the Toodyay Bakery, below left, winner of the best pasty in Australia in 2016, did I mention the excellent custard tart :) P went off along the river to bird-watch while mon ami français Marie and I explored, catching up for lunch and a much needed icy cold shandy at the Freemasons Hotel, it was 26C and muggy that day, ergo the shandy 😉 More exploring and a last coffee at the Cola Cafe/Museum before jumping back on the train for the return journey. What do you think, would you enjoy a trip like this? Will show more of the town's history tomorrow. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  8. I certainly would enjoy a trip like that. Looks wonderful. Reminds me of the time I flew to San Jose California just for the day to visit a museum. It was great fun.

  9. Would have loved joining you for a cold glass of shandy. The hotel must be from the 19th century. Perfect location for a train ride and a day out.

  10. Beautiful building. Now you've got me wanting to experiment with a shandy. With all the craft breweries here in Michigan I've yet to find anything similar.

  14. I watched the Visitor Centre video. It looks like a really beautiful place. I don't think I've heard of shandys; they sound like something worth, uhm, exploring.

  15. In a country town you will almost always find me seeking out the local bakery, unless they also happen to have a bookshop then I will do both.

  17. Well, Grace, I was very surprised to see the bee.. umm shandy there!
    Here we call it "Radler", as a Radler is a perosn riding his Rad (bike) and probably doesn´t want the full thing, either ;-)
    I really love how P and you cope with other people (boy, am I glad, too!).
    Yes, can´t wait for more to come (again).

  19. Great day out, love the architecture, and the cold beer sounds perfect for a hot muggy sort of day. And going there and back by train is perfect, don't have to look for a parking space.
