Cheese and Wine

A travel blog entry by nigel_emma_sam


Off to explore the local produce and sights today. First stop the Hunter Valley Gardens which has a number of formal gardens on various themes. Designed by a famous Aussie Garden designer as his retirement project!

Then on to the Hunter Valley Smelly Cheese shop to grab some lunch. They do a fabulous blue cheese.

After lunch, the …

Into wine country (again)

On to Donegal Town, dinner at the castle bar with a half ...

A travel blog entry by catecross


... All the wines we tried were gorgeous!!!! But even better we had this really throaty, "camp" woman telling us about the wines. At the end, she admired my haircut, saying she was a hairdresser and then it all fell into place. So that's why she was such a good judge of character and so talkative.

We were able to nibble ...
