Hanging rock winery

We had a great day on Sunday. Visited Hanging Rock – AND we are still here to tell the tale! (but we have been told there is some question as to the accuracy of that story! Hmmmm!) The Hanging Rock Winery has such a large selection of wines. If you tasted them all – you would be way over the limit! From there we did a lovely looping scenic drive visiting Kyneton, Daylesford and Malmsbury. The architecture in these villages is like little time capsules of history. Many of these lovely old buildings have been restored and converted into Cafes/Bars/Coffee Shops. The Melbourne daytrippers make the most of all these upmarket  expensive eateries and drive the prices up even higher! Di enjoyed all the Organic foodstuffs that were on offer – but unfortunately I am definitely a Steak and Chips man and nothing will change that!

We also visited Zig Zag wines – very interesting as the owner was married to a Senegalese who was a musician – the music was very much like “Ishmael Lowe” 

Life here in Woodend is lovely but we do get under pressure with the animals – Morning and Evening there is about 3o minutes when all the animals are frantic for food/walks making a fire  etc. Di does her floor exercises every morning and most mornings has the cat(Titania) is doing them with her!! I take the dogs for a walk(should I say they take me for a drag!) All in all we have settled into life here – just wish that it would warm up and have a little sunshine but I guess we are in the Macedon ranges so it is to be expected  

Sorry that post is a little skinny but will do a better job in next couple of days. Much more to follow on this lovely part of Australia – off to Melbourne tomorrow to visit the big smoke. 

HERE IS A SLIDE SHOW FOR YOU TO SEE – SOUND ON……..CLICK BELOW
