Reunited in Yarrawonga
Taking a respite from the 40-degree heat outside, we laid low and marvelled at the intricacies and considerations that have been poured into making this 1300m2 property feel like a home away from home. As the afternoon breeze cooled our picturesque surroundings, we ventured into the backyard to enjoy the rolling lawns. We watched as the afternoon light danced off the breathtaking 100-year-old Moreton Bay Fig Trees, whose majesty undoubtedly stole the show.
On our first morning, we rose before the sun and took the fishing boat out on the water. We watched as the sky transformed into the softest shade of auburn behind the tree stumps (a sight definitely worth leaving the dreamy bed linen for) and patiently waited for a fish to bite. Surprisingly, we were the only ones on the water, apart from the cockatoos and corellas who perched uninterrupted on the tree stumps as we passed by. While floating in between state borders, I took a moment to reflect on the year that has been, the long stretch our family wasn’t able to unite and the current families that are still unable to.
After our fishing adventure, we returned to our oasis, pausing outside with a morning coffee and delighted in the young light dancing through the fig branches. We dug into the wonderful breakfast spread provided by Tegan. We then moseyed through the plans for the day ahead - swimming at the Lake Mulwala swimming pool, seeking shade under the willow trees, and enjoying more of the serenity that backyard had to offer....
