Weekend Getaway

Sorry about my absence of late, I won’t bore you with the details except to say I have been without computer for some days.

So I have lots of catching up to do. Here is a picture journal of our wonderfully relaxing weekend away at Empire Retreat Yallingup. If you feel like treating you and your partner (no children) to some luxury, then this is the place to go. As part of our package, we each received 90 minutes of spa treatments of our choice. We both opted for body exfoliations and hot stone massages. Bliss. We also had a lunch at local winery Vasse Felix which was so good, it deserves a post of its own.

These first photos are taken on the grounds of the Retreat. Homme and I went for a leisurely walk with a soft misty rain falling intermittently.

These are taken of the inside of our accommodation. I forgot to take photos of the shared areas like the dining room and sitting room and french country kitchen.

My most favourite thing in the world – outdoor shower. Exquisite.

These photos were taken in the grounds close to our room.
