Where I stayed
Emma & Nathan's House
So on Friday evening at 7pm, Emma & Nathan picked me up at Adelaide Airport. That was after a fracas at Perth, when we were all on the plane, ready to take off, and I mean ready for take off, when the captain declared that he had just been informed that 30 bags were left behind and that we had to turn back and pick the bags up. Well I couldn't complain, as one of them could have been mine.
So had a good night catching up with Emma & Nathan
On Saturday we headed up into the hills to visit some of the local wineries. Now this is unreal - you go into a winerery and they have a list of wines that are available to sample that day and you can sample every wine of the list. So basically its like going out for the night and drinking for free - but a little bit more refined and a hell of alot cheaper!!! And - you get to taste lots of great wines on the way. Happy Days!!!!
The scenery up here is just beautiful - acres and acres of hills with lush vineyards and lovely cool air coming up from the coast. So after about 5 wineries - Emma and I had our fill ( Oh I should I mention - Nathan was doing all the driving ) After that Emma and I headed down to her local -The Duck - where I met some of the locals. There was a band playing and at the end of the night i was introduced to some of the local dances including - "The Shopping Trolley" & "Feeding the Chooks'. I introduced my own - "Big Fish, Little Fish" which had the locals a little confused!!! But a great night's craic which included the locals trying on their best irish accent. Oh and by the way, Emma and I where declared "no way over the age of 26", which made us feel very good indeed!
