Retreat is actually the name of the farm my uncle owns.
We went over there a week ago to celebrate my granny’s 80th, while wandering the farm I discovered a ladder leaning against the main shed. It did not actually occur to me to climb up there until my other uncle (not the one who owns the farm) suggested we could, he also offered to hold the ladder while I went up. It was slightly terrifying, but I got good photos, which is what matters right. There are a lot of chooks at the homestead too so of course I took a lot of pictures of them as well. So without further ado, here are a very few of the hundreds of photos I took at the farm.
The chook pen is beside the Homestead but you have to go through this really cool gate and vine covered arch to get there. It makes me think of portals to other times and book covers, but it is terribly hard to get a photo of it that looks any good. This one turned out okay though, thanks to the chook.
The old homestead at Retreat has recently been done up and is a lovely place to stay, all our family actually fit, with rooms to spare! Which is just not possible anywhere else, because there are so many of us.
Said ladder, that I was not going to climb.... because it was way too high.... but I did anyway.
The photo below is probably my favourite shots I took, well today anyway.
And from on the shed roof...
I was very pleased with how this panorama worked out it is a 180 degree, shot from the corner of the roof.
even solar panels make nice photos.
The morning we left I walked out to the hay shed and got some photos there, before hurrying back for breakfast and to help pack up.
Where have you gone for recent holidays?
Do you have a favourite photo?
