... in tasting panels. Samples of venison loin are kept over from the trial carcasses and are frozen for sensory and quality testing. We defrosted and cooked some of the samples to a core temperature of 70 degrees in a water bath before cutting them into equal sized strips and finally putting them into the tenderometer (see picture).

... seem to be fairly docile). It comes up to the path and crosses to the other side. We stay and watch it for as long as we can, but it eventually disappears into the forest. We don’t manage to get any decent pictures but regardless, seeing it in the wild has been pretty special. We continue on, buzzing and looking for more, but don’t see much. We eventually reach Boulder Beach, and it’s a pretty place – the cloud is clearing ...

It was built in 1899 and is now only open to pedestrians with a new bridge having been built nearby to carry the heavy road traffic. We parked up ...

    We were pleasantly greeted with an upgrade in our accommodation with no extra charge. The hosts put us in a two bedroom unit with a lounge & fully equipped kitchen. All of the facilities were presented in a neat, clean & fresh manner. I was even impressed that we were asked whether we'd prefer full cream or skim milk (most places don't give you that choice).
