Visit to the Southern Vales

In dire need for rest and recuperation after starting a new job , I traveled down to Adelaide for a long weekend. Barbara picked me up, breakfast at the Adelaide Central Market and then a trip to Iron Bank to visit her parents. Max senior is still very unwell so it was good to chat to him again. Then we gathered up her sisters and had a great few hours visiting the Southern Vales wineries, including Tapestry,Hugo's, Chapel Hill and Wirra Wirra.

On Monday before I traveled back to Adelaide we had lunch at Millies Cafe in Mt Barker. Clearly young Chloe enjoyed her sausage roll and sauce!!
and then met elder son Dave for a meal before a late night flight getting home at 3 am!
