When the hustle and bustle of the city gets to be a bit too much, its nice to escape to a place like CERES Community Environment Park. CERES (pronounced 'series') is an award not-for-profit sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.

CERES is a place where people come together to share ideas about living well together, and directly participate in meeting their social and material needs in a sustainable way. Through social enterprises, education and training, employment and community engagement, CERES provides the means by which people can build awareness of current local and global issues, and join in the movement for economic, social and environmental sustainability.

As soon as you enter the doors of the park, a calm descends on you and you instantly forget about traffic jams and all the other things that sometimes can be annoying when living in a big city like Melbourne. The clucking of hens and buzzing of bees and people chatting is a welcome relief, and time seem to go at a different, more slower pace here. We love visiting the nursery and the organic market where you can buy some wonderful produce, or grab a quick bite to eat, while the kids play in the sandpit with some rustic toys that are available. If they are a bit too old for sandpit fun, there is a cool adventure playground in the park too. It's definitely worth the drive across the city and a wonderful place to recharge for the whole family on a weekend.

The sun has finally made an appearance after a long and very windy winter. The wait for warmer weather has felt unusually long so when a warm day finally came around and we could stick our toes in the crisp white sand at Seaford, it was truly a pleasure!

The new high summer collection from Munsterkids has arrived on both the virtual shelves and in stores. We are totally smitten with this line and it was of course a bit extra fun to see some of my own designs turning out so great - the lovely peeps over at Munsterkids truly knows what they are doing (with over 10 years in the game their collections just keep getting stronger).

I appologize for the slow feed on the blog lately. Work has taken over a big chunk of my weekdays but the creative side never sleeps so I promise I will get back to posting more interesting travel destinations and photos from our adventures here in Australia. Until then... I hope the sun shines on you too!

If you live in Victoria and have yet not taken yourself to the McClelland Sculpture Park you owe it to yourself to do it, and do it soon. We have often traveled past it without even knowing it was there, but always been amazed at a few great sculptures that are visible from the nearby highway.

One day day when we past we noticed a sign and I looked it up. Sure enough, there was a nearby sculpture park. First weekend we had off we decided to check it out. Set in 16 hectares of bush and landscaped gardens in Langwarrin, 4kms east of Frankston on the Mornington Peninsula, it is the home to over 100 permanent outdoor sculptures. It was love at first sight! The park is a wonderful mix of open grass fields, a lake and dozen charming forest pathways, that leads you through the sculpture park. The kids loved exploring and finding the sculptures. I have always had a big passion for sculptures and it was so nice to share it with the kids here, were they could run free and take it all in.

After the walk, make sure you stop at the cafe, kick off your shoes and have an ice-cream looking out over the wonderful lake.

McClelland Sculpture Park is open Tues - Sunday 10am - 5pm.
