Around Melbourne | Werribee Gorge

Now that the weather is getting nicer, we finally went for a hike. We went to Werribee Gorge (always looking for fun things to do on the west side!). The circuit walk is so good! There are definitely hard sections; parts of the trail are just piles of rocks, and there is a cable to hang on to in one part so you don’t fall in to the water. An old irrigation channel goes along part of the trail, and informational signs about plants and wildlife keep the hike interesting. It took us about 3.5 hours and we took our time.

Kauai, Hawaii | Waimea Canyon

The drive up to the top of Waimea Canyon in Kauai is so exciting. The curves are scary but each one offers a new amazing view. When you get to the lookout and see the incredible canyon, it just takes your breath away. Next time we visit, I want to do a lot more of the hikes!

Mount Macedon

We took a day trip to Mount Macedon recently. It was beautiful and everything was so well-kept. There are a lot of small walks to drive to that offer incredible scenery! The Top of the Range tea room is very cute and gives you the chance to enjoy a glass of wine with a view. We will definitely be back again!

Lost Maples Hike

For our anniversary, my husband and I went for an overnight hike at Lost Maples State Natural Area near San Antonio, Texas. It was a rough hike, but the views were worth it. In our typical style, we of course ran out of water and brought too much wine. Our water filter system saved us. There were some terrifying bugs and the heat was relentless, but most of the time we were the only ones on the trail and it was magical 🙂
