Old Pubs

Before I begin my post. I just wanted to say thank so much for your lovely comments during my trip....you are very kind. I have had a lot of comments from folks who are non reply bloggers so thank you to you also. If I haven't rsponded to you that is why.
I know other peoples holidays can be boring but I love where we live so much and it is such an amazing and diverse land I wanted to share it all.
Today was a day of old pubs and stores.....first the Hebel Hotel.
John Murray had been working his witty art here too....



Quirky outdoor furnishings.


Just across the road is the Hebel General Store.....time for a coffee we thought.

It's an historic icon in the district and now  incorporates the old general store and the local hall....an eclectic mix of styling.

We opted for a Devonshire tea....now these a BIG scones....just about the size of damper lol!

Truly light, fluffy  and delicious!
A landmark we had wanted to see if we ever came this way was another old historic pub...
The real  thing...

Situated on the banks of the Moonee River....

It didn't disappoint ....so many interesting things to see.....like all the old hats and their owners names around the wall of the main bar.

Note that Maroons poster there by the way! Hubby enjoyed justvone coldie at the bar XXXX of course!

We thought after our huge morning tea a light lunch was in order.....um! Bit more than we expected!
The pub was also used in a delightful Aussie movie...which I happen to love...
It was really good fun wandering around the pub...throwing the stick for the resident 4 footed publican and reading all the memorbillia.





I love their work ethic lol!
You will be pleased to hear that I'm leaving you all in peace as we now travel home.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
