The Gallery - A lovely weekend

Joining Sticky Fingers for The Gallery... the theme this week is The Weekend.

Every 6 months or so, we travel to Berrima for lunch with my brother and his family. They travel from Sydney and we travel from Canberra, so it's about half way. 

We usually have lunch at Josh's Cafe - the food and service are excellent! 

One highlight for Miss J is a visit to The Lolly Swagman. It's a real old-fashioned sweet shop with jars of lollies stacked up high on shelves along the walls, rows and rows of bagged lollies on benches, and handmade fudge behind a glass cabinet. There's always time to take a photo outside the shop, then Miss J likes to choose a bag of lollies for the car trip home. 

Such a lovely way to spend the weekend.
