Easter Break at Vickery Retreat Alexandra

We had a lovely Easter break at our retreat house in Alexandra - it is a beautiful time of year to be there. The Autumn nights were cool when the sky was clear, with crisp mornings and lots of colour among the tree leaves.

There was entertainment in the main street on Saturday and an Easter Fair in the Rotary Park right at the end of our street on Sunday. More than 40 stalls, food, entertainment and wine tastings too. The town was buzzing!

We enjoy the quiet there after the city background noise and enjoyed the birds each morning and afternoon. We even had a sulphur crested cockatoo come down to the bird bath for a drink one day.

We did a few jobs such as weeding, putting up some new towel rails and best of all - a design wall! We kept busy with kayaking on Lake Eildon, bike rides, skating, sewing, reading and watching TV or DVDs. It was very relaxing.
