Sunday adventures ~ part II

 Did you catch our first adventure?

A little stint of corporate project work means my weekends have been free ~ working 9 to 5, Monday to Friday, what a way to make a living!

Blessed with another beautiful Sunday, and with the Mr’s birthday nearing,  we headed south, down the freeway, a slightly more famous destination in mind ~ the Brown Brothers winery and Epicurean Centre.

The sunny Sunday afternoon was made for an afternoon of grazing on delicious bites while sipping local wine.

We got Epi.Curious, ordering several dishes,  little hands kept creeping into sample the smallgoods and fresh bread. A second round of morsels ordered.

Where else could you introduce the smalls to a quail terrine or a lamb croquette, and which they loved.

On the way home we stopped at another little winery down the road ~ John Gehrig’s. The aim was to stock up on some muscat for friends but we ended up walking away with several bottles for ourselves. [That's not really the biggest surprise now, is it.]

It’s easy to forget what’s in your own backyard. And it’s easy to think you don’t have the time.

These adventures might have only been for a few hours but they create memories that last a lifetime.

Where are you going to go this weekend?

Note to self: One thing to remember ~ take lots of photos, particularly ones with you in it.

There is nothing more inviting than a sunny day in the depths of winter.

It’s like a guilty pleasure to be sitting outside without a jumper or coat on, soaking up the rays.

We’ve obviously done something right of late as Mother Nature has blessed us with sun on the weekends and the grey days during the week, where they are seemingly right at home on a Monday.

So there’s nothing for it but to get out an enjoy it, particularly these past couple of Sundays where we have found ourselves without sport or work commitments, a rare day indeed.

We throw the camera gear in the back of the car, meet up with our friends, and head off into the yonder.

The adventure took us north, a road winding around the expanse of Lake Hume and along the mighty Murray River.

We ended up in the town of Jingellic where stopped for lunch at the pub, hearty fare with a magnificent view to boot.

We took the other road home, crossing the lake on the “ferry”, a small punt that can fit three cars, we were two and then it turned out we knew the people in the third, such is country life.

Stay tuned for part II of our Sunday adventures.
