There are a few more of the houses for sale at the moment if anyone fancies it. As well as delivering the mail, you get time to view dolphins – we saw two types (Common and Dusky), and they ...
... which are hand picked. I hitchhiked a ride with one of the truck drivers and landed in the middle of a Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. The vineyard supervisor very kindly allowed me to jump on to a harvester to get a closer look at the action.
The harvesters only have room for one in the cab so I had no choice but to stand on the ladder and cling on! So much fun. The harvesters are huge and complicated vehicles to manoeuvre. A lot of the vineyards are on ...
