Clare Valley

Hey all, just another quick update from me. This weekend to celebrate our anniversary Cheryl and I visited Clare Valley. It's a nice little wine area further north from Barossa, probably two hours out of Adelaide. You can see the photos here.
Clare Valley is known for it's bike trail, the Riesling trail, so in the spirit of the thing we hired a couple of bikes and went cycling. Rather than stick to the trail, which is flat and easy and boring, we went for the more exciting so-hilly-you-think-you're-going-to-die loops instead. At one point we were a bit confused as to where we were, but we found our way eventually. We probably rode about a 20km round trip, stopping for lunch at a winery along the way. We had plans to cycle to more wineries but unfortunately the weather had other plans, catching us in the start of a deluge that continued the rest of the day and most of the night. Still, we got to enjoy staying inside in front of the fire toasting the occasional marshmallow, so i'm not about to complain.
As well as the cycling we also got to Mintaro, which has a hedge maze (and giant chess!). Cheryl beat me to the centre of the maze, but I won the chess game, so we had to call it a draw.
Anyway, that was our long weekend. What about you guys?
P.S. Cows!


  1. I emailed our weekend and beyond with photos. Sounds a great weekend guys.

  2. Looks like you've been having some fun. Healthy cycling in the rain fun. *grin*

    I like hedge mazes - I went to one in Blackpool last weekend (hopefully I'll be able to update about it soon.. heheh).

    your photos are great!

    yay to living vicariously!!
