I haven't felt the best over the last few days, so yesterday I had a lay day. While Di caught up with a bit of clothes washing, I sat in the sun and drank lemon and honey, swallowed many a Panadol and then took myself, Di and a bottle of wine to the happy hour fire. Another firebug. Huge fireplace and huge fire to go with it. Felt a little better this morning, so Di stuck her pin in the map (it must be a multi-point) and we meandered down through Sevenhill, Penwortham, Watervale, Leasingham, Auburn, Saddleworth, Marrabel, Hamilton,...

We have been very busy discovering all the best coffee joints around the Barossa and supporting the local businesses when cocktail hour rolls around!

Nach ca. 1 ½ Std Fahrt auf der Autobahn erreichten wir dann Seppeltsfield, wo wir...

May 4, 2008 - Warrnambool to Barossa (Tanunda/Nuriootpa) Todd says "not NuriooPTA Clint!" (old family joke)

Up at 6am this SUNDAY morning!! Gone by 7.30am - just not right for a Sunday morning! Put the kids in the car in pyjamas still sleepy and headed off. Plan to stop for brekky down the track. Well, another plan out the window! Hamish was feeling sick before we left the city limits. We stopped for brekky at a park. Keely and Lachy tucked in while Hamish just looked at his and turned green. We pressed on and encouraged him (sternly) to go to sleep. He finally did and we were off. Not far down the track we passed a big truck and his wind rush...
