Montville Craft Village.

All set for a pleasant day out.

Vicki, Peter & Margaret gathered at the wishing well.

A streetscape at Montville.

There are small craft outlets everywhere you look.

Montville is set in the hills just west of the Sunshine Coast.

Comedy routine between Father and Daughter.

Now you see him, now you don't.

Aaahhh Grasshopper!

Oh there you are!!

Silly Bugger!!! (this was one of my Dads favourite sayings
he would mess about just as we were doing here.

G’day all, for any of you who read Margaret’s Blog you will know
about the day trip to Montville on Monday, for others you now know
about it.

While I have had the pleasure of the visit by Vicki and Rex I have
been unable to keep up with blogging, first things first!

I have just dropped them off at the Brisbane airport for their return
flight to
Adelaide, so will catch up on the blog world over the next
couple of days.

Peter, you are a good friend for Margaret. I read her blog first, that day she needed a friend to show up when you did.
We have a Montville in Maine. It is very pretty too.

What fun photos, the "peekaboo" cracked me up. The photo of Montville is breathtaking! I love the dark with the bits of sun peaking throught the clouds.

Have a great day!

*sigh* It makes me yearn for a daughter of my own. Will have to settle for maybe a daughter-in-law eventually. My oldest son's girlfriend doesn't address me as "Mister" or even "Dave", but as "blogger" with sarcasm. *sigh*

Lucy said...

Well next time give me more notice. Shopping in AU - i'm sure Tom will understand.

Cute pics ---
