What a wonderful accommodation! Graham was such a gracious host! All the restaurants are within a few minutes walking distance. Definitely take a wine tour while you're visiting. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice place to relax and enjoy wine country. You'll definitely enjoy the complimentary port in your room to finish off the day, not to mention free wifi and a delicious breakfast!

Either way it was not a good outcome. I had to go slowly so the stones wouldn't fly up ...
... I did his street cred enough
damage by the photos that I posted on Facebook featuring his new headgear. The
rest of us were great spectators and hurlers on the ditch.
Today is a badly needed day of rest for all,
so I have time to update the blog. An AFD – alcohol free day – was also badly
required as we gear up to celebrate Tony’s 60th birthday on Jan 6th.
Now that will be some party. We ...
... wet. Around eleven we quit working and around twelve thirty the sun came out and was shining bright. After going to town for groceries we came back and started working on the van. The shelving between the back of the driver seat and the bed had to go. We ripped it out and after measuring found it fit in the back if we cut the bottom shelf off and push the bed up a few inches. We also got lucky and noticed that the table we took off back at the strawberry farm was ...
