Just a few pics of what’s been happening on Da Block here in the Clare Valley! Temperatures aren’t too bad, cooler nights and warm days….the BEST time to visit the Valley!!!
Don’t ask me what I’ve been doing, but VERY VERY BUSY!!! 🙂
It’s been a year of 1sts! 1 year since we purchased our ‘base’ here in the beautiful Clare Valley, SA and 1 year since we’ve been classified as ‘Itinerants’. The time has gone so quickly (apparently that happens as you get older!! :P)
We have achieved much, have lots more to do, have enjoyed 3 months away in the winter doing our first love – travelling, and are about to celebrate 1 year of ‘block ownership’! It’s warming up too, which is typical for SA, yet a couple of days ago we were wearing our Ugg boots and sweaters!?
I have posted a few photos of our 1st flowers in our ‘live or die garden bed’, a pano of a rainbow over the shed one arvo and some food of course!!
Next year I will be introducing a new category, Cellar Doors & Nosh Houses of the Clare Region!!! We have ‘made’ ourselves venture out on Sunday arvos to sample what visitors to the Valley already know: how good the wineries and food joints are here!! We are by no means experts on wines, just know what we like (just like food!).
So to anyone out there following my blog/website, thank you and I hope you will follow us again next year. Maybe next year I will be able to catch up on Photographs to add to my Catalogs. Please follow me on Facebook @Ozontheroadphotos
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
The weather has warmed up and the flowers are blooming! Finally!!
Springtime in the Clare Valley is beautiful. The canola fields have just lost their yellow tinge, the buds on the trees are all out, the succulents & cactus flowers are blooming – it’s the best time of year!
We finished the reno on the Mintaro cottage and have returned to a friends farm north of Clare to organise a few things before moving on. We’ve been back in the Clare Valley since end of April this year. Now we have lived through the full four seasons! Yes, and this winter in Mintaro had to be the coldest we’ve experienced living in the van. Autumn & Spring the best.
I have posted some photos of the blooms around the farm area, the day out at the local Clare Show & general farm stuff! We also enjoyed Celebrating the 175th for Bungaree Station a couple of weeks ago (next post).
