With Ashley’s surgery coming up soon we’re trying to fit in as many outings as we can as we are going to be housebound for the next year.
We took the younger three children out to York, one of the oldest country towns in Western Australia. Its funny how there can be so many things literally on your doorstep but you don’t bother to go and see them. At the moment we are focussing on making happy memories for Ashley to look back on while she undergoes rehab.
York is just over an hour away from where we live and it’s a pretty drive. It’s a beautiful little town but sadly we noticed a lot of properties for sale including all three pubs, which is never a good sign.
Lunch was courtesy of the town bakery and after we had a walk around we drove up to the lookout. There is a short walk/climb once you park your car and Ashley’s legs were hurting so I carried her – good practice for what’s to come. When we got up there it was very windy (and chilly) but the girls were entranced with the view.
Afterwards we went to the residency museum. It cost us $10 for the whole family and was one of the best museums we have ever been to. There was so much for the kids to do. Dress-ups, trying their hand at old machinery, playing croquet just to name a few.
It was a lovely day and on the way home we had three sleeping beauties in the back of the car – worn out from all their adventures.
