16th plan b | the dandenongs instead of main street

I took time, made all the plans.
I know I told you that we were
Supposed to have something
Made for this weekend
But I changed my mind - Lyrics Born

Sometimes it's worth changing your mind. Especially when the drive isn't much further, and you planned something else.

We had a beautiful afternoon at Sassafras in the Dandenong Ranges.

We picnicked in the park, enjoyed a luscious dessert and devonshire tea at Miss Marples tea rooms, shopped in gorgeous boutiques including Tea Leaves where there's the biggest range of teapots (and teas) I've ever seen. I even bought a few gorgeous things (and decided that shopping with parents is a really bad way to save money).

The air was fresh, and the temperature was chilly, but we were in the mountains. Besides, it was such a lovely location.

And so much better than the original plan.
