with its rugged beauty we awoke to explore The Clare Valley. we stayed in the town of Clare. the 2 nights we were there were cold but beautiful warm to hot days, perfect weather. we visited a heap of wineries and the boys had fun, exploring , playing and sometimes annoying us after the we had stayed at a winery for too long.
Clare is famous for their Rieslings and i feel in love.
the area reminded me a little of Tuscany with its rugged beauty. perfect rows of lush green vines and then ruggered Australian bush :: gums, dirt and brown grass.
we swam in the caravan park pool, had yummy BBQ's in our camp and had great coffee in the main street. we found a great toy shop that sold anything related to tractors and Archie was in heaven.
we needed a few more days as we would have liked to hire bikes and ride the reisling trail which meanders through the townships of the valley and the wineries.
