Bree's Hens Day

A very large, and fun Saturday this weekend was Bree's Hens Day. I drove through the rain to meet a bus at her place in Heidleberg, where a bunch of us loaded on, and were passed little bottles of champers, as the bus made the long drive to the Mornington Peninsula. Catching up with Miss Bree, and Erin, Alissa, Bec, Lana and Jess was a bit of a bonus treat for me, not getting to see them much since changing offices.

Reaching T'Gallant Winery, we made a dash inside through the pouring rain, to wine tastings of the range, before being seated for lunch. A couple of their wines had market-grabbing names, with Juliet being a hit for our group, although sadly Romeo didn't really capture our attention.

Dips followed by pizzas were the wares, in the Italian inspired surroundings, while the rain kept falling. The gaggle of girls for the day were growing quite rowdy, before returning to the bus to head a touch further down the coast to Portsea.

The Portsea Pub was the final destination of the official day. One of Bree's favourite spots, again spoilt by the deluge of the day. Our late afternoon and night here seemed to be a day of so many parts. Dancing and much silliness was the end result, with a group who will all gather again for the big event in a couple of weeks hanging out together. Loads of fun!

About 11 of us had put in to stay in a house in Sorrento, and whilst I can't tell you much about how we found this street location through the back streets over in the next suburb, I can tell you that the key to the rental didn't work!

Many angry words, plottings to break in, consideration to sleeping in cars, and phone calls later, a local locksmith saved us from shivering our way through the night on the decking. An amazing house, sadly not fully utilised due to the lateness of our eventual habitation.

Such a great weekend, and despite the rain, has set up for a great wedding!
