Hunter Valley

We love getting in the car and driving up to Hunter Valley Vineyards. The whole area is lush and green and the long straight rows of vines stretch off to meet the mountains everywhere you look. Many of the vineyards are open to the public and have cafes and gift shops to encourage you to come in and sample their wares. Today it was raining and we were feeling a bit cabin feverish so we decided we needed a dose of fresh air, gum trees, green vines and good coffee. We didn't take many photos because of the weather but I enjoyed  being in the passenger seat and still managed to try taking photos from inside the moving car!

I'll leave you with a photo of my view during the drive....!

  1. What a fun perspective!
    I've never visted a vineyard before, but it sounds just gorgeous from your description.

  2. I'm may have rain, but you also have warmth!! The vineyards sound like a nice break from everyday routines....hope your day was a good one.

  3. It looks lovely! I think I'm in the Arctic Tundra.

  4. Its raining here and we're feeling a little bit of cabin fever...but the rain makes it hard to go out without an umbrella...and flippers!

    Glad you got out and enjoyed the beauty, Kim
