At the end of the line

Mr SE and I took the train to the end of the line today...Up to the mountains or, to be precise the Dandenong ranges, near Mount Dandenong. He has been at home over the last few days as he had to have a minor operation on his elbow (caused by an old 'war wound' - not really - a leftover from a car accident he had in his early twenties). Anyway, I am pleased to say he is on the mend and apart from the wounded soldier sling he has to wear is feeling a bit better.

This was the view from the cafe where we stopped for lunch.

Just look at the colour of the leaves and the contrast with the blue of that sky... the mercury hit 19 degrees today - the perfect Autumn day.


  1. I love the villages in the Dandenongs. Do they still have beautiful afternoon teas?

  2. You and Mr SE seem to find so many wonderful things to do in Oz. I know your life is not one big vacation, but you always seem to maximize your "free" time so well. And of course are then kind enough to share. Thank you.

  3. Sarah...just beautiful...reminds me of the Blue Mountains here in Sydney...crisp cold air and lush autumn leaves. So glad you had a lovely trip out with Mr SE :) x

  4. LOVE the pics and glad that you had a romantic day with Mr. Poorly SE :-)... Will try and get Mr. Melbs to take me there! xxx

  5. Lucky you I loved the Dandenong ranges when we visited a few years ago. Hope that your hubby is feeling better soon :-)

    A tres bientot,

    Leeann x

  6. Train travel feels like such an adventure. You are both very adept at exploring what is out there...have a great time too!

  7. Lovely photos - I do like a train ride. You'll be pleased to hear it's finally warming up in the UK!

  8. That landscape is amazing! So beautiful. There's nothing like a perfect autumn day!

  9. What a scene! Would that be 19°C? Very warm still. Quality time spent!

  10. Sarah - that looks wonderful...thank you so much for your sweet offer of a place to stay...only wish I were here longer and able to take you up on it! Really wish we had been able to get together when you were in the U.K. - never mind, next time....enjoy autumn! x

  11. hi sarah,

  12. Hello all... many thanks for lovely comments... To answer questions...
    Julienne - yes lots of little places serving yummy teas!
    Metscan - yes 19 degrees cent. so you are right it is warm at midday - really nice I think although some Australians think it feels a bit cool!!

  13. Wonderful goods from you, man. I've keep in mind your stuff previous to and you're simply too fantastic.
