A couple of years ago a bunch of us were asked to run a shabbaton in a suburb of Melbourne called Kew.
It wasn’t a lot of fun but we bonded together through adversity. Since then, whenever possible, we get together to spend a shabbat together.
It’s been less frequent in recent months since I was overseas and other have also been away travelling and studying overseas or inter-state.
But finally enough of us were in town to warrant an expedition.
Though this time it was to a country town and not an inner city suburb – just beautiful!
We struggled with the door/key situation for a while.
But then, just as we though we would have to sleep outside we realised it wasn’t even locked and we just weren’t pulling on the door right!
The boys got stuck into table-tennis right away – I preferred my spot on the couch with the super cute cushions!
From these pics you would assume that we were eating amazing healthy food the whole time. And to be sure we kinda did. I made bok-choy salad and eggplant schnitzels as well as a kick-tush curry chulent.
But I also had 3 bowls of ice-cream of the weekend and BBQ chips for breakfast.
How beautiful is the scenery? Seriously gorgeous.
We stayed up late playing monopoly and eating ice-cream. We caught up on what’s been going on with each others lives since we’ve been gallivanting around the globe.
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend.
