After much confusion with directions we finally made to Sara & Blair's sheep farm, a beautiful location amongst rolling hills, streams with Mt. Somers in the background (Actually we couldnt see it, since the clouds rolled in, but I'm told on good authority).

These guys have about 2500 acres of land, 6500 sheep, 120 cattle, 1 goat and several working dogs.  What a great place!  Saw Blair muster sheep and those dogs are fantastic in getting the animals where they are supposed to go.    On this property there is a lot of agate and we went digging and found all kinds of interesting coloured pieces.  This area is renowned for its quality agate and Sara has it made into jewelry of all kinds, beads for necklaces, etc.  You can imagine we had to mail parcels home after that visit. 

They have a tennis court on the property so Sara and I played which was fun.  The guys joined us one day and didnt Bernie go and pull a calf muscle and hobbled around for a week after.  He is now fine and determined not to play tennis again.
