Two dogs. Milly, a cheeky, little "very low tum" daschund and Romeo a beautiful, big german shepherd gave their names to the 'Artisan Bakery and Cooking School' at Koonwarra, just up the road from us, in South Gippsland.
It's a favourite place of ours to celebrate special events and we had a lovely lunch there last Saturday. The food is exquisite, just take a look at the sweet treats on offer. Sometimes I just want to skip straight to dessert!
Beautiful camellias on the tables make everything even sweeter.
Anyway, back to the story of Milly and Romeo. Apparently Milly can be a little bit naughty so is always left at home as she can't be trusted to behave while guests are about, while Romeo is allowed to sleep peacefully in the sunshine around the back, on the verandah. Isn't he gorgeous? We had two beautiful german shepherds while I was growing up, so I have a special soft spot for them.
Our lunch out was to celebrate this girl's birthday. This one with the very long hair, the plait and the pink felt flower in her hair. She felt very grown up, being ten now, as you do.
If you find yourself driving along the South Gippsland Highway, heading towards The Prom, and are feeling a bit peckish, do stop for a while at Milly & Romeo's. I'm sure you'll enjoy!
