Geelong Wine Tour shots

Early November 2008 saw my sister, husband, Hannah and I go for a wine tour in Geelong. Held every year, the Toast to the Coast tour celebrates locally produced wine and products. Here’s just some shots I wanted to share:

Here’s Hannah in a field of long long grass:

Here’s Hannah and father walking away from us in that same field of long long grass:

Here’s the moment Hannah decides to reveal: “No shoes onnnnn.. daaadddeeee!!!”

The minute we realised Hannah had lost her one shoe!

Insert mental image of that moment of horror of realising we need to find a pint-sized shoe in a field of long long grass and then the mad running around peering through long long grass for that spot of purple!

Orchids as a side business of another winery. I love orchids.

Did ya know? Wineries often have roses growing amongst their vines. This is very important. Not so much for their beauty but the bugs that attack the grapes often attack roses first. So if their rose plants are healthy, the vines will be too!

We spent ages at the last winery because we couldn’t tear Hannah away from this gorgeous blond golden retriever.

I was the designated driver of this event so I was bored and feeling rather left out until we visited a antique giant mall, Mill Markets in Geelong and I walked away with ONLY this gorgeous bedroom chair for $40.

Hope you enjoyed these shots of a relaxed and enjoyable day out with my family!
