MTM – Day 3

Posted: July 23, 2020 in Uncategorized

We started up the fire last night for no other reason than CLP is a bit of a pyromaniac 😏 Great way to warm up the pillows too. It has not been very cold this stay but certainly pleasant days under cloudy skies with no rain. Yet…

Relaxed plan today after another very filling breakfast. Only issue with this wonderful room is it is adjacent to the communal living area and there were a couple of sheilas in there last night talking until all hours. You know 8 pm! A polite request and they left back to their rooms no problem. We will head off to Gallery Walk around 10 am to fill in a couple of hours before it is socially acceptable to knock on Fortitude Brewery door! Ok….. they don’t open until midday , ya got me .

After the stunning success of our African Attire last night CLP thought she would keep the African theme going today but I suggested perhaps a quick wax first ?

When I got back up off the floor we headed out. We had a perfectly good coffee to start with as most shops don’t open until 10 am. Clearly there is a theme here and it is basically hippie new age and no vaccinations required 😏 CLP still found some stuff of interest apparently but really the plan was to get to the end of the street quickly

At the end of the street and just around the corner of course was the first alcohol inspired venue on list – Tambourine Mountain Distillery . Luckily it was quiet when we were there and really excellent value tasting paddle for $5. These babes start at 20% ABV and don’t stop there so the 4 samples were perfect and we bought a couple of bottles just to be sociable honest. As we were leaving a bus of hen party sheilas arrived so we really dodged a bullet there

We then retraced our steps but on the other side of the street for variety. Sadly the shops were mostly the same. As the big hand and the little hand were were getting cosy it was time to head to Fortitude Brewing just in case the sheilas followed me after a skin full. Once again suitably quiet and we had been there before we passed on the tasting paddle and went straight to the 8.8% Slipstream IPA. In this weather it would certainly be a slipstream again rather quickly. Ordered another excellent pizza as well

By now the alcohol level was just under appropriate levels for still driving so time to head back for a break and a bath and test out some of that sweet smelling stuff La Lady had bought . It was very pleasant indeed and quite romantic so may just sign off for the day with one last selfie. They say the longer you stay together the more you start to look alike but I reckon I am still the stunner in the group

Tomorrow we head down the mountain to the McLeod Spread for a couple more days of eating and drinking but in the warm embrace of family . Luckily with this social distancing in place I don’t actually have to hug anyone 🕺🏻
