Dec 23, 2016 - Greenock

The madness of Christmas finally caught up with me today when I went to do the grocery shopping. I went reasonably early, but so I think, did almost everyone else in the Barossa Valley! I did my shopping in an extremely large, and well stocked, Foodland. No Woolies or Coles in the Barossa! Anyway, after fighting my way up and down every aisle, I then had to put everything away when I got back to the van- that can also be a challenge and I did go a bit over the top today! After lunch we went and checked out the two wineries and the brewery...

Weather is definitely warming up again but it was still a nice day to do a little more sight seeing today. First stop was back at Seppeltsfield winery as Ian wanted to go back and see the knife maker that he had noted on our way out yesterday. I went and took a few photos of some of the palms that are notorious around the Seppeltsfield area. Apparently, Mr Seppelt paid unemployed wine workers to plant them in the 1930's. From Seppeltsfield we drove up to the Mengler Hill lookout and took some photos of the patchwork scene below us, before...

Beautiful day weather wise today and a lovely day overall touring the Barossa. We drove through Nurioopta (4k down the road from Greenock), then parked in the main street of Tanunda so as to visit the Information Centre. We walked up and down the main street of Tanunda with the dogs and were very impressed to find bowls of water for dogs outside quite a few of the shops! Our dogs had the odd slurp as they passed by! From Tanunda we drove to the Lyndoch lavender farm. Just beautiful. The lavender is just coming into flower and the perfume...

Dec 20, 2016 - Port Julia to Greenock

Weather was much more pleasant this morning, making it easier to pack up and hit the road. We drove through Ardrossan, then said goodbye to the Yorke Penninsula at Port Wakefield before heading cross country toward the Barossa Valley. We drove through some cute little country towns with a quick stop in Balaklava to pick up a few groceries and another brief stop in Owen for lunch. We headed for a ‘cheap’ camp site in Greenock ($5 donation per night) and it has turned out to be another gem! You can stay here for 7 days, and it would seem...

We have had a relatively settled few weeks camped at the back door of Pete's Grandparents house in the Barossa Valley - quite hard to take! There has been a bit of family business to attend to with a big garage sale & putting the house on the market since Pete's grandparents are no longer around. It was great to be able to help out & spend some time with 'Mad Aunty Chris' - We hope it made a daunting task a bit easier for her at least. I managed to sneak in a massage too which was much needed - the caravan mattress could be to blame! We...
