Easter weekend is always an exciting time for me. We don’t go away, but we then again we do.
While I don’t necessarily celebrate Easter, I enjoy spending time with my family. We normally hit the roads and explore the same old routes, sometimes with some new additions or some varied trips. Even though, we’ve done this as long as I can remember, I still get excited knowing we’ll be going on a road trip. I feel most at home while on the road and travelling. It brings me peace.
So, here’s what I got up to:
2 April, Good Friday
We always start by heading to the Easter market at Meadows. Often enough we then head Myponga way down to Victor Harbor, but as of late we’ve been going to Goolwa for their markets before stopping at Port Elliot and then finally Victor for their markets.
We had made it to Victor by lunch time, so, we got lunch at a fish and chips shop, before heading to the markets.
It’s a pretty routine day. We went home through Yankalilla and had a look at the op shops that were open. But before then, we headed to Normanville and stopped by the beach for ice cream. We ended up watching an SUV get bogged in the sand before we joined a long line at the kiosk. I ended up getting an iced mocha because I knew that would come with ice cream and I also wanted some coffee.
3 April, Easter Saturday
Normally, Easter Saturday is the day that could go anywhere. Recently we’ve been going to the Riverland.
We started by heading to Angaston’s Easter markets before making our way to Truro where we explored their antique shops and their community op shop. Then we hit the road yet again heading towards the Riverland, stopping at Waikerie for lunch and ending up in Renmark. In a way, we detoured to Loxton before heading home through Swan Reach.
It was definitely the longest day.
4 April, Easter Sunday
Yet another road trip. However, we started our day with an easter egg hunt, another little tradition we’ve got going – although, I feel like this tradition is more widespread.
We had a dead line for today, as my little sister was working, so, we needed to be back by a certain time. So, with that in mind, we made a quick escape after the hunt.
Saddleworth was first on our itinerary. They had an Easter Sunday market on. Although, their market runs on other Sundays too, depending. It had certainly grown since the last time we’d been to their market, it was also a lot busier.
Then we decided to head to Clare, but stopped in Auburn to check out their little market. We also headed out to Mintaro, and explored Martindale Hall. Then we decided to head home through Tanunda, stopping to get some ice-cream and to check out their little craft fair. Our final stop was at an acquaintances house to pick up some flowers we had won in the raffle from Angaston’s market.
5 April, Easter Monday
I’m writing this post today, although, you’ll be reading it later this week or further down the track (who knows?). We have no plans to go anywhere. Mum and my little sister will be going into town to get some stuff for her snow trip later this year, my brother will more than likely tag along, and I’ll be working hard to get an assignment done by Friday (when it’s due). 3000 words to write, let’s go!!
I’ll also be heading back into town, and we’ll be going out to tea for my grandma’s birthday.
So, a quieter day, but still just as busy.
Well, there you have it. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my weekend and let you all know what I got up to. I enjoy reading photo diary posts and want to create more of my own.
What did you get up to this long weekend?
