Forrest Chillin'

After a hectic workweek, we heading out to the Forrest to escape for the weekend greeted early by the Kangaroos grazing in the back paddock and all the birds we headed down the road to get breaky from the general store and plan the days.
We headed out on the mountain bike trails for the day filled with adventure and lots of laughs. The brewery was walking distance from the cottage and provided the perfect way to wind down.
We then spent Sunday going to some epic spots out in the Otways like the redwoods and Hopetoun falls, flicking a line in the reservoir and even snuck in another ride on the trails before heading home.
