We had taken our art journals to work on... two big suitcases of supplies and a small bag of clothes each... I should have taken a pic of the table as we worked on them.. hmmm maybe not...think our hosts would have had a heart attack at the mess we made (but we cleaned up before we left)

Saturday we headed back to McKenzie Falls via Stawell for breakfast, was sunny but cool morning but unfortunately it was raining quite a bit up in the hills and I didnt get a shot of them (Lucy did using my tripod which we were sharing but the rain came down in buckets as she finished so we packed it in) and we returned to Ararat for lunch. At least that was the plan. Ararat shuts at 1pm on saturday. Almost nothing open... except McDonalds which we were sick of... no nice cafe's... so we comprised and had a very nice Subway lunch before returning to our cottage to art for the rest of the day.
Sunday in Ararat... bustling town of 8200 very sleepy people it seems... as Ararat was totally deserted and dead at 11am... few shops were opening but it seems there is very little sunday trading in Ararat. Its not the end of the world, but you can see it from there.

Monday morning was back on the road home... our art journals had quite a few pages done... we had a lovely time... and made a two new resolutions (never visit somewhere with bad internet access and make sure the town stays open past 1950)
