Road Trip Part 2 - Albury to Yarra Valley

After a drive from Canberra to Albury we spent the night at a motel in Albury.

Got some shopping in at Target - bought 5 tops for $45 off the clearance rack...

Explored the town before getting dinner at the club.

Can't escape the hospital biscuits... ;)

The next morning we were off bright & early to get breakfast at the Beechworth Bakery. Such a pretty little historic town, I'm just disappointed that we were there too early as the stores don't open until 10am :(

Grabbed some treats for the road - so yummy!!!!

Snickerdoodle...

Beesting....

Drove through the Kinglake area, as Mr TPS spent some time there following the Black Saturday bush fires. It was so sad to see so many brand new homes along the road - you just knew the area had been devastated.

Arrived in the Yarra Valley in time for a late lunch at Domaine Chandon...

Great view!!! (You can see a bushfire off in the distance...)

Smashed it!!!

Finished off the afternoon with a trip to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie - loved this sign!!!
