My Holiday….Part 3

Never a dull moment. Plenty to do or do nothing at all.

Creswick & District U3A.   U3A stands for University of the Third Age.  If the first age is childhood and dependency, the second age is child-rearing and working, the third age is the time to pursue our own interests.   I belong to a U3A here in Brisbane and have attended classes on Pencil Drawing and Creative Writing.

The Creswick U3A is active and thriving well.   While on my holiday I learned the basis of playing Croquet . I had a quick 30 minute lesson and then played with three ladies, it was so much fun.

I also had the opportunity to attend a Yoga Class which I found beneficial and relaxing

Geoff and I took time one afternoon to meander around the Creswick pool and lakes.

One of the water areas is ok for fishing and swimming.

I took two photos of  an interesting memorial for Creswick Miners that lost their lives in 1882.

I also spotted this sculpture made from some sort of clay that sets like concrete and stands up to all weathers. Geoff did tell me the name the substance it is made from but I forgot.

Creswick has great community centre where lots of groups are held. It also has a community garden .

For such a small country town there is so much to see and do.
