We are sitting here at The Louise and having a lovely breakfast. So time for my journal!
Arkaba Station was heaven…again as with Pretty Beach House, we felt at home. Brendon, Stuart, & Richard were amazing and we gained new friends. The region is spectacular and Helmut is looking to return to do the 4 day bush walk.
Mary Anne is a “hoot” as we say (I think I have seeded the term into Aussie speak already). She is so energetic & knowledgeable.
Yesterday we went to Henschke…saw the harvesting of the Grandfather rows on The Hill of Grace!! Add to that our driver back to the winery was none other than Stephen Henschke with Lottie the dachshund!!! According to Melanie, the marketing manager, we had just hit a trifecta!!
Then on to lunch with Jim & Pam Lambert of Lambert Estates…it took less than 5 minutes and we were friends. Both Jim & Pam are from the Milwaukee area where Helmut grew up. They invited us to their home for a home cooked dinner and outstanding wines!!
So we are off for more adventures today!!
