The Swan Valley.

Only three days until Christmas and my only day off work for the week.

I was going to just lounge around at home and work on completing a photo album but I decided to make the most of the weather and went for a drive out to Midland.

On the way back home, I detoured via The Swan Valley. For those who haven’t been or heard of this place, it’s a food and wine region situated near suburbia. It’s like driving down south to Margaret River but it’s right on my door step.

I stopped in at my two favourite places, Yahava Coffee Workz and The Margaret River Chocolate Factory and walked out with a bag full of chocolate goodness and dark chocolate coffee beans- both of which are my absolute weakness.

(For the coffee lovers, this place is a must! Even if you walk out empty handed, their cafe selection is divine and the views are almost as lovely)

The Margaret Chocolate Factory and Providore is situated 250 metres down the road. You can sample all of the produce at their Providore and in the Chocolate Factory, you can sample their white, milk or dark chocolate pastilles, take in the views on their outside veranda with a coffee, icecream, chocolate truffles or buy all the wonderful chocolate creations.

The sky was filled with clouds, the sun was shining and the view was beautiful. I think I found my slice of heaven for the week.
