The Glorious Barossa

Earlier this year we went over to the Barossa to celebrate a Family birthday albeit belated as it was the only weekend everyone could be in the one place without having to rush away. One party drove across, one flew from Brisbane and the rest flew from Melbourne and hired a car to drive from Adelaide. It was a wonderful weekend. It began with trawling op shops on the way over. My girl is constantly amazed at how I can find them! Pink Tuscan china for $2, golden books and cute beach themed printed glasses.
On the Saturday morning we attended the Barossa Valley farmers market for yummy breakfast rolls and coffee. We stocked up on an assortment of treats such as the pastries from Careme, beautiful handmade chocolates from a very humourous Chocolatier and fresh fruit.
Visits to numerous wineries, secondhand shops, more op shops, a visit to a quilt shop and dining locally filled our lovely weekend which went by so fast.
