Tastes of Rutherglen, 14th March 2010

2:44 pm Filed under: Uncategorized

Tastes of Rutherglen is a show case of all the amazing wines, wineries and food we produce in our area. Eating houses marry up with a winery and match a dish with the wine. Most Wineries have music and or entertainment. We went to a couple but we always seem to end up back at St .Leonards. We ate there and had a couple of bottles of wine. After a while we discovered that they had a bocci set. We had a lot of fun TRYING to play it.

That night we had a family dinner and a cake. The next weekend she had her friends over for a party.Well actually the plan was ,that everyone come here, have lunch then walk down to the pool. But of course when we woke up it was raining, so we had to really quickly come up with plan “B”. Which I had know idea what it was? but luckily the girls and I had watched a home show the night before and they did some canvas’, that inspired us.The girls enjoyed creating them, I think they did a good job.

A little Sunday Drive.20th Feb 2010

8:49 pm Filed under: Uncategorized

We thought that we would pack a picnic and head off for the day. Some friends of ours joined us. First stop was to Pfieffers Winery. This is one of my favourite wineries, it overlooks Sunday Creek, and in the summer , 100s of turtles come out to play and love some old bread crumbs.Rhys ,Ella and Jack walked down the embankment and across a plank onto the pylon for a closer look.

Second stop was to some Aboriginal caves, we didn’t realise that it was an 1hr round trip ,walk. So we will put that back on the to do list.We all ,only had thongs(flip flops) on so that wasn’t really going to cut it, as a walking shoe. Next stop was Woolshed Falls. We wanted to take the kids and swim in the water holes and rock pools, there wasn’t alot of water running as we have had a lack of rain, but still quite scenic.

We then went into Beechworth and had to stop of at the infamous, Beechworth Bakery mmmm ..they have the BEST beestings ever made! Then wandered around the shops and then found a little boutique Brewery, which we had some nice little tastings. All together a lovely day out.
