the country

Today I visited 'the country'.  I took a train out to Castlemaine, which is about an hour and a half west of Melbourne, and is where my sister lives.  Castlemaine is a pretty little town from the goldrush days, which now attracts arty/hippy types and has an abundance of cafes.  And since it was Sunday there was also art markets and farmer's markets.  It was nice to get out of the city, but unfortunately it was a rainy-ish day, so we couldn't get out as much as I had hoped- it looked like a great place to walk about snapping photos like my tourist self likes to do.  How was your weekend?  Did you get away to somewhere interesting?
