Tessa of Down That Little Lane takes us to an Island...
Tessa says: My favourite place is Hamilton Island in Queensland. The Island is small and friendly you can only travel around it by golf buggy so you immediately slow down as you arrive at the island as those little things can only go so fast..
The Island has pure luxury in the form of Qualia Resort or you can rent and apartment and just go basic. There are lots of hilly roads so nearly every place has a view to soak up and the far side of the island has tracks to hidden beaches and the peak where you can see the rest of the Whitsunday Islands. We have visited at least 5 or 6 times in the past 12 years of living in Australia and it gets better every time. The pace of life is slower, the weather is glorious and the waters surrounding it are just that typical picture of paradise.
Thank you Tessa, how I wish I could be transferred there now. Such a serene place. I hope you get a trip there soon.
One of our regular customers Emma shares a favourite place and a family moment 'by the seaside, beside the sea.'
Emma says: Best friends (and joint lovers of Sisters Guild) sharing a holiday together at the good old British seaside town of Southwold. On the pier with ours husbands and gorgeous children at half term. The perfect photo to remind me of all my favourite things!!!!
Ahh Emma, thank you. Friends and a shared day can make a place so memorable. It's always good to have that moment captured on camera for posterity.
So, here this blog series ends.
We have loved hearing about all these favourite places and sharing them here on our blog with you. We've been back and forth across the 2 hemispheres: from the woods of Wimbledon Common, London, to a park in Sydney; a view of Loch Sheil in Scotland, to a ride in Picton, NZ; from the 'Devils Chair' in Shropshire to the retreat of Oia in Santorini. We've felt our hearts heal at 'Heavens Gate' in our home county of Wiltshire, we took a seat at the Wolesley, sat on a bench in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris and we heard of a kiss on the cliffs of Beer in Devon.
Each published place will now be numbered and entered into the draw - we will use a random number generator to pick the one to receive the £60 Sisters Guild voucher. We shall announce the winner next week, on Tuesday 6th November.
Thank you and Good Luck.
Wishing you all happy travels near or far and many moments cherished.
