The Christmas socialising continues: today we visited some friends who recently moved onto a small rural property.
They have a lovely home on about four & a half acres: Arawata is about one and a half hour's drive east of our home - in East Gippsland.
The country-side is beautiful, with rolling hills, lush grass and cattle grazing.
It is an area that produces quite a lot of milk and associated dairy products.
Our friends have a couple of chickens and also allow their neighbours the use of the paddocks for grazing. The gardens around the house are lovely, featuring kangaroo paws, and lots of other shrubs.
This is one area of Australia which has not suffered from the recent drought or the current floods.
So many lovely places to visit: I hope you enjoy these pics.
