I WAS one of those people who thought that Cranny was full of bogans with 11 kids under 12, a front yard car kept for spare parts & dole queues longer than the line for a train after a Collingwood v Carlton game at the "G".
What we've found since we purchased a little slice of 3977 is that, sure, there may be tiny pockets like that, but it's a damn good place to live. The people are seriously friendlier. Everyone says hello or at least nods in your direction. And shop people give much better customer service. How I LOVE good customer service!
So now that we're here, we thought we might start exploring the area and finding some cool places in and around Cranny.
Although we've been here once before, this place is now free, FREE, FREEEEEEEEE. So first stop on the Loz and Reinsey 3977 discovery tour is...
CRANBOURNE BOTANIC GARDENS
Don't groan - it really IS cool. And it's all native. There's loads of ideas for those of us with new gardens to create;
Yeah, it's possibly an old person kind of thing (not that I'M old) (the "old boy" could be though), but it's under 10 minutes from home and did I mention it's FREE?
