The Mornington peninsular and Portarlington sit on opposite sides of Port Phillip Bay, south east and south west of Melbourne respectively. During our day trip to the former, we stopped at three different places to taste 8 sorts of cheese (made from either sheep, goat or cow’s milk), 4 types of cider and more varieties of wine than I can remember! 😉
It was Aaron’s birthday while I was there and his father, Rod, came down for a few days to help him celebrate and share in the fun.
The following day we drove out to the annual Mussel festival at Portarlington. The weather wasn’t great, so we don’t have many pictures, but I can confirm that the local craft beers are very good and that it’s a fabulous day out. This was where I lost my camera, so the below images are, again, courtesy of Joanne.
