I am a little belated with this post seeing it was Easter that we we enjoyed the Hunter Valley with our daughter.

We managed 14 wineries in a couple of days.  The views, scenery, wines, cheese and chocolates just beautiful.  How lucky we are to have such lovely places to visit in this gorgeous Country we live.

I am a little belated with posting over the past week, but we spent it at the Hunter Valley and met up with our daughter.

Winery no 1  and the scenery just beautiful

Who would have thought we would have found these in a Winery
Gorgeous kettles.

nad lunch we had at this lovely Winery  - Calais Estate

This gorgeous swan walked right up to us where we were staying

and this shop lives  up to its name!!!!

I thought we were doing the wineries, but
look at all the wonderful things that stopped us in our tracks;

Oh yum and you must try this, dip some bread into some flavoured olive oil - My choice was Manarin,
then into the caramelised Balsamic vinegar, then the Dukah - yumo

and for those who dont want to drive the Wineries, there is always the horse and cart.

Oh and this lolly shop
amazing with all the british lollies inside
check this chocolate fountain, can smell it from here.

All the lollies lined up like in the big old fashioned  container.

More gorgeous scenery

This one was Port Belly

and from Allandale Estate - just beautiful scenery.

I know this is not much of a "stitching" post but I just wanted to share some gorgeous scenery
Australia has to offer.
