Burra Weekend

D and I have spent the weekend with my parents at their cottage in Burra, a town roughly two hours north of Adelaide. My Dad grew up there and I have lots of memories of holidays spent with my Grandma and Grandpa. This weekend was the Clare Gourmet Weekend, where wineries showcase their vintages and serve food. Unfortunately it has been really cold and they didn't have as many people attending as usual. On Saturday we went to Annie's Lane, shared a bottle of Rose and a cheese platter - delicious!

Agnes was (of course) totally adorable and I took far too many photographs of her. I couldn't resist sharing this one:

This morning we took her for a walk. It was pretty cold but lovely and sunny. We paid a visit to the creek where we used to spend a fair bit of time when I was little. It's such a lovely park. We used to collect monkey nuts from the pine cones and feed the ducks. I always looked forward to it until one day a hungry duck bit my thumb while I was feeding it some bread - disastrous! Didn't see it today....but I was on the lookout.

Ahh, happy days!
