A weekend away immersed in the art trail and the incredible Phoenix Sculpture Garden made for a memorable 2 days. But that was not all.
Look what else we stumbled across…
A vintage car show. Blokes drooling over relics of the past, buffed to a high sheen and sparkling chrome. (The cars, not the blokes…)
Others a-flame with air-brushed beauty.
Then I spotted that icon of the flower children from the 1960’s, now the back packer’s darling for trundling around Australia. The VW in all it’s rusted glory…
Covered in stickers and the memorabilia from that era.
Of course the iconic Holden FJ with bench seats made for smooching had to be there too.
This young women stood out in the flamboyant style of the 50’s. But the mobile phone is a sign of these times…
She is in a hurry. I wonder where she is hurrying to, so I follow along.
And I am taken on a trip down memory lane to my teenage years.
To the background sound of rock n roll these locals strut their stuff all dolled up in the fashions from the 1950’s. Do you remember them?
It was so much fun.
This was one of the more unusual studios. An old train carriage, surrounded by a glowing garden, converted into an art studio.
So that is just a small taste of the weekend. It was varied, interesting and very inspiring.
The icing on the cake was the Airbnb accommodation we stayed in. A delightful, well-travelled couple invited us into their home surrounded by bush, warmed with a wood fire and sharing a glass of wine and good conversation. A comfortable bed lulled us to sleep and birds woke us next morning. And it only cost $50 with a light evening meal and breakfast. I LOVE Airbnb…
A perfect weekend away.
