We spent the day wandering through McLaren Vale wine region and stopped at Samuel's Gorge vineyard - a very rustic and old vineyard - one of the most unique ones we have ever visited. We sat outside sampling their red wines while overlooking the gorge. It was perfect wine for a cooler and windier day. After wine tasting we drove down to the Fleurieu Peninsula's Deep Creek Conservation Park where we camped for the night. Being the Late Lains (and previously a Late Martha) it is not surprising that we are taking our first detour and staying an extra day down near the water in this beautiful park. The rush of moving and stress of saying goodbyes caught up to us yesterday...combine that with the beauty of this area south of Adelaide and we felt the need to enjoy another day here hiking the coast and relaxing before our big trip up the middle. large_Drive_from..ninsula.jpg

I imagine you stocked up on some of those tasty reds for your drive up :-)) It's nice to know your itinerary allows you the freedom to detour from your plan. Enjoy your wanderings. What beautiful memories come to mind seeing the amazingly green, sheep topped rolling hill backed by the sea. Great lighting!
Enjoying your blog :-)
