Okay still going I know it was a big day
Another high was visiting Evans and Tate, I thought oh no boring, wrong wrong wrong!!!
The hosts were great, very informative and helpful, he made sure everyone got a sample of whatever they wanted. I even bought some bubbly (Zamphire) which I rarely drink (bubbly that is, I should clarify that) for some reason, since I was a youngster, I never liked bubbly (fizzy soft drink that is) . See I told you that my brain has gone on annual leave.
The new tops on bubbly allow you to keep them for a week, haven’t tried that yet, so we shall see how true that is, providing for once I don’t drink or share the whole bottle in one sitting, come on I am not the only one!
Brittany is about to open a bottle of Saint Clare (SSB)as I type, it is a New Zealand wine that we are very, very fond of. (okay so now I am sounding like a lush) We hunt the stores high and low to find it when it is on special, usually around $18 a bottle, I wonder that we may be wine snobs

|Every winery had a dog to greet you, they are all friendly|
|My stash, I did the girls a bottle each of the bubbly, generous Huh?|
The other piece of greatness about this place is that attached is a place that sells olive oils, preserves, body washes etc etc. But not only that they have a great deck where you can sit out on, with your bottle of wine, ( the wine people give you an ice bucket) which a group did that very thing, while I was still busy buying wine. Damn, didn’t cotton on to that till it was to late.
Back on the bus, we were driving of and there was a bash on the back of the bus, oops we nearly forgot the single guy. Felt bad as no one had missed him, even Mandy the driver.
You snooze you loose
I’ve got more but I’ve gotta milk it right?
