Family Holiday Part 3 – Churchill Island Heritage Farm

My favourite part of our visit to Philip Island was Churchill Island Farm

We arrived at lunchtime and grabbed a bite to eat before we went off exploring, sadly while we were waiting for our lunch we missed the ride around the farm but we saw the rest of the activities which run one after the other.  First we saw a cow being milked.  The kids weren’t real keen to have a go!  Next we watched a couple of sheep being shawn.

After that we watched the man doing some whip cracking.  He was fabulous, what a true Aussie character!  Daddy even had a go!

We explored the historic buildings and watched the dogs rounding up the sheep.

Just as we were about to leave I realised we hadn’t seen the Highland cows that were all over the advertising material.  The cows paddock was on the outside of the entry gate, I’m glad we looked around or I would have missed them!  They are so cute!!

We finished the day off with ice creams on the beach and some thong throwing for entertainment!

Family Holiday Part 2 – Philip Island, Cowes

After our quick visit to Hastings, we kept driving to Philip Island to find the holiday house that I booked via airbnb in Cowes.  The house had 3 bedrooms, two toilets and heaps of space, it had everything we needed and more, it was so relaxing.  As we drove over the bridge at Philip Island we noticed heaps of custom old cars, we didn’t know but there was an awesome car show on the same weekend we arrive….

Day 2: Kustom Nats

At the race track we found hundreds of custom cars, it was so great checking them all out.  It was fun watching them drive round the track (not that quickly so they didn’t bottom out).  There were also stalls with vintage style dresses etc which were really nice but I refrained!  I bought a cute tea towel.

After checking out the cars we drove toward Pyramid Rock and checked out the view.

Day 3:

The main street of Cowes featured a cafe and collectable shop that I wanted to check out.  We had brunch here and then wandered the shop which had some really cool stuff

After brunch we headed to A Maze N Things

We had a game of mini golf, walked the maze which was tricky and frustrating for some, but it was an enjoyable afternoon, it filled in a few hours for the kids.

Then dinner by the waters edge where we saw some more cars and the kids had a play at the park.

Bridport Family Photographer

Before Christmas (yes I’m a bit behind) I had the pleasure of photographing the Cox family from Bridport.  It was lovely to meet their children, and we spent some time at their home and at the beach.

I love to try and get a shot or two of the family pet, as they are such a special part of a family’s life.  Thank you for having me photograph your lovely family.
