Last glimpses of the Hunter Valley.....

I thought I would share a few more glimpses of our trip to the Hunter Valley with you!  This view could have been taken in all sorts of places around the Hunter Valley - there are row after row of vines, all over the hills and valleys.....
Check out this tiny shack!

And the front view
And the explanation.......just love being able to see history like this!
And this is the really cute letter box for the guest house where we stayed - how cute is that!
Breakfast buffet - of course I have a buffet like this at home every day.......doesn't everyone?  No?  Alright then, neither do I.  Check out the real honeycomb on the stand and that dish in front of the honeycome is peach bread and butter pudding....for breakfast?
Mmmmm.  Who doesn't love a few pastries!  I started with the fruit, might have had a pastry or two
while i was waiting for......french toast.  I had meant to take a photo when it was put down in front of me, complete with the chopped strawberries and ALL the slices of toast but I forgot till I was half thru!  It was so yummy!!!!!
At one point on the road we had to move off to the side of the road to make room for this monstrosity!  Huge!  Just after it pulled past us and we went on ahead we came to a roundabout!  I wish I had seen it going around that! 
That's it!  make the most of these photos as I have no idea when I will next get away anywhere for a holiday!  maybe July next year seeing as David won't be taking leave for 12 months now.  oh well, I will just have to sew!

Till next time....Happy stitching!


  1. What a lovely place to visit! The landscaping around the humble home is so pretty, and what a view! The breakfast buffet reminds me of some of the spreads we had in our vacations in Europe. So much better than waffles, cereal, and donuts as is so common here in the states!


  2. It looks like it was a wonderful holiday!! I'm taking a small one this week (Thur - Mon), but I'm going home to run a half marathon. It'll be fun as I'll be running with boyfriend, 2 brothers and 1 niece. After that it's off to celebrate another brother's birthday! It'll be FUN, just not as scenic as yours.

  3. Looks like you had fun. The view is wonderful. The buffet looks awesome.
