We have had a lovely day today celebrating SH's sisters 50th Birthday. SH and I headed off nice and early and met the rest of the family and her friends at the Clyde winery in Bannockburn. We enjoyed a beautiful meal of antipasta and wood fired pizzas. The winery overlooks a valley that unfortunately at the moment is a dust bath but could be spectacular when it's had some rain and becomes green.
This window believe it or not is in the individual ladies toilet, looks out onto the valley! Trust me I had a good look first to make sure no one could accidentally wander to the other side and look in!!!
Loved these pots attached to the wine barrels where the outside pizza oven is. Looked so nice and provincial.
Realised I forgot yesterday to tell you we are flying in and out of LA and will just spend some time on the West Coast. My first request for advice for our holiday - please! is about accommodation. We can book accommodation here through a travel agent but it is going to be very expensive and is worked on a per person rate not a price for the room. Is this normal? I am wondering whether I am better trying to book something directly online. Any ideas for websites for accommodation or hotel chains that are reasonably priced and reliable???
It is my 1 year blogoversary today - gosh it has gone quickly and been such a rewarding experience. I have made some wonderful friends and been inspired by so many people. I am not having a giveaway to celebrate as I have a few 'care' packages to send off this week to some blogging friends that need a bit of TLC!!
