I've had a lot of stress lately with major changes at work, our new house being at the final stages of the build and general life stuff so it was just what I needed. One of the things I love the most about G Town is being so close to the coast. It was high on our "pro" list when we moved here and I plan to take advantage of it! Barwon Heads is prob only 20 mins away from our place and as soon as I smell that sea air, I instantly feel better. The sea is good for the soul, I am convinced.
Here are a few of my favourite places in the main street (Hitchcock Ave).
We did indulge in some retail therapy. I bought this ring from Red Dog 3. It is made in Korea and had some weird bunny sticking out of it that I pulled off. How cute is it? Only $29! Bargain.
Frith and Mum bought me this beautiful scarf. (Yes my mum still buys me stuff...I am V lucky!)

On our way back to the car, generous Nonna wanted to get some afternoon tea for Mr G who was home trying to watch the Hawks play football while also watching the girls, so we stopped in at Annie's Provedore and Produce Store. I dare you to leave there without some gourmet morsel of one kind or another. Beautiful deli, zeally bay breads (divine), sweets, continental sauces, jams and the list goes on.

If you didn't already know, the town was chosen as the location for the ABC television series Sea Change from 1998 -2000. I have a dream about buying a block of land to one day build a holiday house on!! Inhale...exhale...beathe in that sea air!
