One out of the box

My 'Mystery Picnic' day was so enjoyable and much better than i was anticipating. It was fun solving the cryptic clues and calling into country towns that I had not been to for many years. I did the Macedon Ranges tour with my wife and we were so lucky to have a lovely sunny day. The places we visited were all so friendly and enthusiastic and very much added to the day's fun. We didn't really travel a great distance but enjoyed browsing in the towns and re-acquainting with the countryside, using back roads wherever we could to enhance our trip. Our collection of 'goodies' proved to be too much for us to devour for lunch, even though it was almost 3 p.m. before we settled into it in a beautiful park setting. The 'leftovers' never went to waste as we enjoyed them whilst reminiscing, the next day. We did much PR work for "Mystery Adventures' as we were keen to chat to many people during the day and this added to our experience. It was a super gift for a very special occasion from my family and I will be looking out for a time when I can be the donor. Thanks to the organization for superb attention to all detail which enabled the whole experience to be memorable.

Lovely day, even though it was freezing! We got lost on one of the clues lol, but that just meant we saw more of the countryside. Lots of food! We even had enough to bring home.
