That time we went glamping in a vintage airstream called Peggy Sue
Losing my Dad in January meant the past 9 months weren't the easiest, so when Easter popped up in the calendar we were desperate to get away and have some time to unwind and refresh. Having stumbled across Happy Glamper on Instagram we decided we'd splurge a little and look into glamping on the Mornington Peninsula. As soon as we went onto the Happy Glamper website we fell in love with Peggy Sue the vintage airstream <3 We had to have her!
And so it was that over the long weekend at Easter, we had her to ourselves, plugged into a powered site at the Tyrone Foreshore Campground. Although we spent a lot of time just chilling out in Peggy Sue reading, watching Netflix, or in Tom's case, playing ukulele (his newest obsession), we also ventured out on day trips to Flinders, Sorrento, San Remo, Phillip Island (penguins!) and Arthur's Seat as well as a bunch of other stops along the way.
One of the highlights was going to Flock of Seagulls, an indoor market of local handmade items and used furniture and second hand clothes. We also enjoyed brunch at Picknics cafe in Rye and somewhere at Mt Eliza I can't recall the name of. The peninsula sure knows how to treat us Melbourne folk to some fine produce.
In the evenings we cooked on a single stove gas burner next to Peggy Sue, and enjoyed relaxing inside her spacious (and warm) inner sanctum.
As you'll see in the photos below, we also enjoyed a couple of beautiful evenings and one sunrise down on the Tyrone beach foreshore. Tom bought the kerosene lamp on a whim on the way down to the Peninsula and it soon became a feature of the weekend! Even leaving our car smelling like kerosene (thanks honey). The perfect way to remember a great weekend away xx
